One night we did a fashion show: we shared clothes, took pictures, laughed together, creating drama (a lot of drama!) … We really had a great time!
When I first got to Germany I didn’t know what to expect. It was my first time in that country and my first time traveling alone. I arrived at the place where we were going to stay for the next two weeks. It was very cosy: the bedrooms were comfortable, the kitchen had everything, there was a big room for the meetings and to spend time in, a big field where we could play games… During the rest of the day I met the other the participants and the camp leaders and from the first moment on we got along well.
The next two weeks we did a lot of things together, we worked in various tasks such as painting walls, fixing a fence and an amphitheatre, building a rolling pathway, cooking and cleaning… But it wasn’t just work! We also had free time; we played football, card games, listened to music, talked…
Apart from working, we were able to visit Hersbruck, a little town near the camp, and Nuremberg where we went to a history museum about the Second World War. Also, we could go to a lake, a very nice place to rest, take a bath, buy an ice cream, read, play card games… We did some activities in the group related to the ecology and orientation but the funniest one was the night we did a fashion show: we shared clothes, took pictures, laughed together, creating drama (a lot of drama!) … We really had a great time!
My favourite part of the camp was the fire place because we were always sitting there together, looking at the stars, thinking, talking, chilling, listening to music, singing and dancing, saying goodnight to the ones who wanted to go to sleep… It was very special for us, we made this little space ours and unique.
And the worst part? It was the last day of the camp, saying goodbye. It was the hardest thing I had to do, I wasn’t ready for this moment and I think no one was. We all knew this was going to happen but saying goodbye to people with whom I had shared so much and loved in a very short time wasn’t easy.
The most important thing wasn’t the work at all, most important was that we were together, the diversity of the people (12 countries from all around Europe: Armenia, Belgium, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Syria and Ukraine, plus China), who live miles away from each other connect in this little but warm place living together for these two weeks to have fun, to make memories, to learn something new every day… and hoping we’ll see each other again soon.
