Invitation to participate in the 14th IYC:
Dear young people,
We, the organisers of the 14th IYC, are very happy to invite you to the 14th International Youth Camp 2014! We welcome all young people who want to fly in a balloon and have the experience of a summer ballooning youth camp in Europe. The last few editions were in Germany, this year we’ve partnered up with Kubicek Balloons, and are very glad that we will be able to welcome you to the beautiful town of Radesin in the Czech Republic. We organise this summer camp, because we want to make our beautiful sport accessible to young people and to build a young international balloon community.
Among other things, our programme will consist of the following activities:
- ballooning & chasing the balloon
- introduction to the safety of ballooning
- explore the surrounding area – visiting the Kubicek Balloons factory
- campfire romanticism – event education games
- swimming – football – volleyball
- model ballooning
- and a lot more!
Flying balloon is only possible at good weather in early morning or late evening, so all our activities depend very much on the weather conditions. We will often decide situational what is possible to do, ‘safety first’ is key in this decision. Our accommodation will be at a camp site on the Radesin Castle estate, where we will spend the nights in large tents. The meals will be cooked by all participants with the help of our kitchen team on site.
