It is a great pleasure for Frederikssund Rotary Club to invite 16 young people (age 18-22) to join our camp from August the 12th to August the 26th.
The Camp will take place in Frederikssund and its surroundings with visits to sights in Copenhagen and Roskilde.
Frederikssund is a fairly small town with 25.000 inhabitants, 45 km north-west of Copenhagen. It is beautifully situated on the shore of Roskilde Fjord, which was one of the significant waterways of the Vikings.

During your stay, you will be hosted mainly with Rotarian Families who all speaks English.

It is important too that you speak English at the minimum on conversation level.

You will be looking forward to many social activities and various sightseeing in Frederikssund and the surrounding area, where the transportation mainly will be on bikes.

It is therefore vital, that you are familiar with biking.

The host families will provide you with bikes. If you have a biking helmet please bring it!

The Camp will be completely free of charge for you, but you must pay your transport to and from Frederikssund, and you must bring some pocket money.
