Summer boating camp - ŠÁN The children's organization KONDOR, the ŠÁN branch, is preparing for the holidays two consecutive summer boating campsů on its island on the Elbe near Roudnice nad Labem. The camp is intended for everyone who likes exercise, is between the ages of 7 and 15 and has at least the basics of swimming (you can't avoid water on the island).
Fifty-six children are at each camp, which are divided into four sections each the consisting of two crews. Crews compete with each other in a camp-wide game. Each of the crews takes care of their nine-man canoe, on which we sail around Šan and play most of the games. The program is tuned in a sporty way, with regard to the possibility of using available boating equipment. (Laminate and plastic) doubles, kayaks, single canoes and a few other treasures that we come across in the shipyard are also used for training. Other options include illustrative teaching of Eskimo and swimming skills. We will lend complete boating equipment to newcomers free of charge.
The island is located on the 805th river kilometer of the river Elbe near the village Hrobce. Until 2008, it was the 32nd river kilometer, sail in peace. The Šan is about 1 km long and at its widest point about 60 m wide. The children sleep in tents, they receive five meals a day in the bright laminate dining room, which is connected to our new brick kitchen.
