Sleeping quarters at Wichrowe Wzgórze are motel style rooms with varying numbers of occupants per room. Some rooms have private baths while others have bathrooms that are shared with other quarters. Linens will be provided. Please let us know if you have special needs for lodging.
Meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served family-style in the Wichrowe Wzgórze dining hall. A specific vegetarian menu may not be provided, but salads and sometimes other vegetables are available. Snacks and tea will also be provided in the mid-morning and mid-afternoon. Coffee and other refreshments may be purchased at the dining hall during the day and in the evening.
Recreation options are expected to include Kashubian pottery, canoeing, paddleboats, lake swimming, horse cart excursion, and exercise class.
We will have a good selection of lessons and electives, so you will have at least three hours of singing school lessons per day plus more singing each night. We will have sessions for all levels of experience from beginners through experienced singers.
Counselors are available to help adult campers enjoy the Camp Fasola experience. Parents/guardians or grandparents are responsible for accompanying and supervising youth under age 18 at all times for all activities, meals, classes, and sleeping at Camp Europe. Campers are asked to perform some area of service to support camp operation during the week.
