Price from €850


In collaboration with the non-profit youth organization, FöFe, we have created a summer camp focusing on bringing young people from different countries together. 15 children from Germany and Europe and 15 from Greece, aged 14 to 17, share exciting outdoor experiences. Acceptance, equality, cooperation, meaningful communication, and authentic contact are at the heart of this program.

The age and small number of participants, 30 in total, makes the group extremely flexible, giving the opportunity for extremely interesting and challenging activities. Lakes, mountains, waterfalls, and rivers are our field of action!

Hiking, climbing, rafting on Voidomatis, canoe kayaking on Lake Plastiras, fantastic excursions to Zagori and Meteora, mountain living, and many other exciting activities enrich their days. The children actively participate in shaping the program, take responsibility and add their own touch.

This is a truly unique camping program! The concepts of respect, solidarity and friendship across borders are being fleshed out. The physical and spiritual development of children, the development of skills and the promotion of values such as solidarity, social contribution, multiculturalism, and respect for nature make up the philosophy of Pertouli International Camp.
