About Camp Fjalir 2017
Find out what the camp is all about and how to apply.
We look forward to arrange a new camp in 2017 for disabled youngsters. The first Camp Fjalir was arranged in summer 2016. We are pleased to note that it was a great experience for both the participants and the volunteers.
The camp is located in the western part of Norway, surrounded by a beautiful scenery of fjords and mountains. The base is in UWC Red Cross Nordic,
N-6968 Flekke. Campus is wheelchair accessible.
To learn is to discover. To create understanding, tolerance and peace.
