Mont Royal Summer Camp Vol. 7 in Traben-Trarbach (DE)
Same procedure as every year!
Mont Royal Summer Camp is the biggest annual Hospitality Exchange event in Germany and has been happening since 2007. It is an event mainly organized for the members of hospitality exchange networks such as Couchsurfing, Hospitalityclub and BeWelcome but is also open for whoever wants to come.
Travellers come from all over Europe and sometimes from even more far away into the Moselle valley to spend a long weekend with like-minded people. So far there have been participants from all continents, from more then 40 countries and of all ages (including babies and seniors).
The idea for the camp was inspired by similar events like the Monnai Summer Camp in Normandy/France and the 1st Berlin Beach Camp that both took place in 2005.
Since the first edition of MRSC in 2007 the camp has been constantly growing in it's number of attendees. In 2012 we reached a number of around 220 participants. People who had been at MRSC once tend to come again. Most people at the camp allready know each other but even for newbies it is not hard to become "part of the family".
The approach of the organizers is to organize as little as possible but as much as neccessary. Usually there is no strict program or timetable as we love to give everybody the freedom to to what they like to do. However, during the camp there will be a lot of activities going on. we just do what we want to do when we feel like doing it.
This might sound very un-german and un-organized but the success and feedback of the last five years has proofen us right.
The main interest of the organizers is to provide all participants with an atmosphere where they can feel ease & relaxed but where they can have an unforgetable party at the same time!
