Summer Camp 2013 venue!


YES Summer Camp 2013 edition will take place in Izmir, in Western Turkey this July, on 14th to 21st to be exact. This weekend we made the first of study visits to the venue with Thomas, to see the place and organisation there. At the same time we had a chance to get to know some of the CHP Youth activists and volunteers that will be making the biggest event of this year a reality.

The venue is called Denizati, and is situated in Gümüldür. There is everything needed in the venue, from a pool to a beach, and from purpose build club to great seminar and training facilities. Accommodation will be in tents and bungalows, like in the previous years as well.

And I think more than anything we would like to thank CHP Youth for a great job and enthusiasm with what they have taken on a task of organising the Camp in a fairly short time frame. All that we saw in Izmir this weekend points towards a successful and well organised Camp for this summer, and we found ourselves yet again convinced by the organisational skills of our hosts. Next we will concentrate on creating a political and training programme that makes sure we’re ready and fighting for the year leading to the 2014 European elections.

Summer Camp registrations will open at the start of April, and there will be whole lot of information made available during this coming week, as we also open the Summer Camp website.

Now we only have to figure out how to deal with the +40C heat of July without staying in the sea the whole week!

This is where the tents will be. Nice and shadowy, with a friendly neighbour.
