* GATC: Get Alive Today Camp
2. - 16. 8., Pelhřimovy
facebook event * more information on Brontosaurus website
Extraordinarily event, remarkable theme. Let's dive to the nucleus of our cell and try to live in small community for fourteen days in magical enviroment of an old church.
Will you be able to synthetise enough proteins for hard work for all organels of the cell (cook for the whole group); build stable endoskelet for transferring molecules around the cell (make stable paths for comunication among the group); and last but not least, make some endorphins (enjoy the camp).
So get alive today and fill the aplication, so we can together show the world, what being alive feels like.
We will be helping this beautiful chruch, mostly by repairing the walls. The work might be a bit demanding. The church of saint George is the last memory of a town called Pelhřimovy, right on the border with Poland. It was ruined during the WW2. Nowdays, it has been repaired by volunteers for 20 years. We will be working for 5.5 hours a day. There are 8 working days out of 14.
Enjoy your summer!
