Coming to Poland

1. Transport

All team members are required to arrange their own transport to Wrocław, Poland (NB this is NOT Warsaw) Ryanair and Wizzair fly from many cities from UK to Wrocław. Team members are met at the Wrocław airport by a member of the “Arka” team. Transport to and from the airport is by car and to and from the campsite by bus. At the end of the time team members are taken by car to the airport.

In the event of the team member’s plane being delayed, the person awaiting them will wait as long as is reasonable. Just in case the team members are given the telephone number to call and the address for the taxi driver.

2. Accommodation

Comfortable accommodation is arranged before and after the camps. All team members are accommodated in comfortable single sex rooms with a few people in each room. Bedding is provided everywhere, no sleeping bag is needed.

3. Itinerary

Team members are asked to arrive preferably two days before the camp and leave within two days after the camp finishes. Time before and after the camps will be used for orientation and debriefing.
