After a week for our cleaners to get all of the student rooms ship-shape after the student exodus, the campus was yet again filled up with excited new faces. As always, the Red Cross in our region provided the main group of visitors over the summer. New for this year was “Camp Fjaler”, an international camp for physically disabled participants, run by UWC Connect for the Lion’s Club, involving co-operation with Haugland Rehabilitation. It is our ambition that this shall become an annual event. At the heart of our summer programme is the co-operation between volunteers and our own professionals. Because of this we can offer great holiday experiences for truly diverse groups. “Haugland is the ideal place for camps like this, both when it comes to the beautiful fjord landscape, the facilities and the competence of the staff. Our participants go home with fresh new perspectives and experiences”, says Franzie Lerch, leader of Camp Fjaler.
It’s been a good summer.
