Summer Youth Camp – Jeseníky 2022
A cottage near the forest, training on the mountain meadow, cooking together, hiking up the hills on the horizon, morning exercises and night walks, conversations by the fire, swimming in the spa town, reading comics and watching horror movies… our camp in Jeseníky was really very varied!
These camps are becoming a tradition for us – it was the fourth time we went to the nature with young aikidists. This time we rented a cottage in the middle of the Jeseníky Mountains for a week and enjoyed regular training sessions, time together and the magic of the mountains. The theme of the training was a strong and stable centre – a quality that is useful in aikido and in everyday life.
By the end of the week we were pretty much exhausted – as most of us had previously attended the adult summer school and also a week of summer school on the island of Oleron in France.
And next year? We are thinking of going to the Slovak Paradise again for the youth camp.
