Additional information from 2013:
The three week programme packed full of culture, art, theatre, music and volunteer activities will run from July 28th to August 18th 2013. The focus will be on European Identity, voluntary engagement in and for Europe, youth participation and the benefits of cultural diversity and intercultural exchange. The participants will work together to complete several projects in the city of Magdeburg and The Education Centre. The main emphasis will be on landscape preservation and on nature conservation as well as on the renovation of play and leisure areas. A focal point will be a theatre project during which EuroCampers will write, design, act, build sets, make costumes and perform music for their own play. Participants will be asked to present their own country and culture in different ways, in the lander café and during the cultural night with music, dancing and theatre. Participants will also be asked to prepare a traditional dish for The European Buffet, a large cooking party in the end, where tastes from all over Europe are cooked and tasted. Details of the programe are available on the Eurocamp website.
All accommodation, food and activity costs are covered by the organisations involved in Eurocamp. An allowance of up to €120 is available to cover the costs of travelling (usually fly to Berlin and onwards by train) to and from Germany.
