Nocrich Camp 2016 – Live the Culture
During 15-25 August 2016, Nocrich Scout Centre – H.C. Habermann will host the third edition of “Nocrich Camp“, an international camp which, in 2016, is based on the motto “Live the Culture”. The camp is addressed to ventures and rovers aged between 15 and 24. The camp’s program is based on discovering the multicultural area of Hârtibaciu Valley, mainly the traditions and local history, through craft workshops, an exploration of neighbouring villages after a French model, involvement in the community, evening program around the campfire, but also intercultural evenings with scouts from Romania and abroad.
Nocrich Camp is also a very interesting and unique intercultural opportunity where you will meet scouts from many countries with whom you’ll be able to discover how scouting is in different parts of Europe.
What have we prepared more exactly?
Crafts – This area has developed thanks to the crafts practiced and perfected by the Transylvanian Saxons, Romanians and Roma. During Nocrich Camp, alongside skilled craftsmen, you will give your imagination a form in clay in the pottery and ceramics workshop, you will shape tiles, you will learn the restoration technique, permaculture, sustainable development and many others. Get ready for several days in which you will learn new things and be motivated: to be a craftsman is not that easy, but, with a lot of practice, the end of the camp will find us in a great crafts fair.
Exploration after a French model, was tested at Nocrich Scout Centre by lots of scouts, and now’s time for you to experience such an adventure, exploring the surroundings and then seeking shelter for the night in the community. You will be in direct contact with the villagers and you’ll have the chance to discover the village life of Hârtibaciu Valley and to help the villagers doing some household work. You will do all of this as part of a mixed patrol with scouts from various other countries.
Multicultural traditions – if you reached this area, it’s inevitable to make contact with the traditions left behind by the Saxons and now lived by the present community of this area. A part of this section of the camp is represented by the Treasure Hunt in the village, a hunt of treasures and stories, of memories and knowledge of the community you’ll be part of for 10 days. Also, there’s a high chance that your adventure will take you to the village Alțâna, where youcan find the Interethnic Museum of Hârtibaciu Valley. The city of Sibiu is located 30 kilometers from Nocrich, and for one day you will have the opportunity to explore it and find its stories along with your patrol.
Community – Nocrich Camp represents joining a
community for 10 days, an international community of which you will be a part and with whom you will live new experiences. The mixed international patrols, pioneering, the preparation of the 3 meals with your patrol during the camp and the teamwork will help you to exceed your limits and to grow in the new community.
Creativity – During Nocrich Camp you’ll find active and interactive methods to relax when there’ll be time for a break from the activities mentioned above. We have prepared a relaxing area, an UNIcorner, slackline, open space, the small hammocking, a reading area, daily waterfights and the list goes on…
