Traditionally, we will sleep in our own tents. The camping ground is equipped with showers with hot water, bathrooms and toilets.
CAMPER vans & CARAVANS
If you plan to arrive with your own caravan or camper van you should register before 30 June 2019 and mark such an option in the booking form. We have a limited number of available spaces so the order of applications decides.
Basic electricity for lighting will be available (200 W, you should have your own extension cord). The electricity available will not be sufficient for electric ovens, kettle or heating. We plan to put up a tent at the caravan site where you will be able to use an electric kettle.
The contribution for parking there is PLN 15 or €4 per day. We do not offer caravans for rent at the site.

Rooms and bathrooms in the main center building are reserved for team members and guests.
Our kitchen will be serving 3 meals a day (meat and vegetarian) at the site. Food is included in the participation contribution fee.
For the hygienic reasons we use single-use plates and cutlery so you do not need to bring any of these of your own. In fact, you wouldn’t even be able to use them. There will also be a cafeteria with delicious coffee, home made cakes etc. Hot water will also be available.
This year there will be no childcare organised. Parents have to take care of their children on their own.
There will be a basic playground with a sandpit, a swing, a small football course and small tents in case of rain available. Please note that the Gompa tent is not an appropriate site for children to play.
We will also prepare a small area for children 0-4 in the dining tent.
Please remember that unattended children and minors cannot be present at the course site. Parents are solely responsible for their children.
Lectures and meditation sessions will be led in Polish and English, depending on the needs and possibilities.
It may be the case that Polish or English translation is available only through the FM radio so we recommend to bring your own FM radios with headphones.
There will be enough parking places at our guarded parking site. The contribution for using it is PLN 5 or €1.25 per day for a car and PLN 20 or €5 for a bus. For environmental and safety reasons no cars or bikes are allowed in the park/camping site of the centre.
Also, please mind not to leave your car unattended at our neighbours land bordering the centre or at a roadside.
