Program Overview

Program Description:
Imagine miles of quiet forests and shimmering lakes - and you've got a pretty good idea of how the areas around Piotrkow Trybunalski (Central Poland) look. More than half of the land here is covered by forests, the area boasts over 50 lakes, and, because of the region's peculiar Cold War past, this natural wonderland remains relatively untouched by tourism and somewhat undiscovered. The tourists who do come here mostly Poles or neighboring Germans - rave about this peaceful setting that still offers opportunities to fish, hike, mountain bike and horse-back ride. The camps typically run July and August. There are four camp sessions lasting 10 days each. Volunteers can go for as many sessions as they want. Participants will live at the camp with other counselors. Accommodations and all meals are provided.
