At the camp, new volunteers will be prepared for their upcoming journey, returned volunteers will share their experiences, and foreign volunteers can meet other, both Danish and foreign, volunteers.

During the course of the weekend we will talk about cultural shock, intercultural understanding, and other practical information. The weekend also allows for networking and getting to know other volunteers of like mind.

The camp starts in Gadsbølle on Fyn at 7PM on Friday 6th May and ends at 2PM on Sunday.
