“SO(u)L CAMPS ON THE DANUBE”
- 30thJuly to 6th August 2017. Sremski Karlovci, Serbia.

Both courses are just €375 inclusive of all tuition, accommodation, food and excursions.
Since 2013 SOL has been successfully running residential summer “SO(u)L camps” that are held in Central and Eastern Europe. These are teacher development courses with a strong focus on intercultural communication skills and working with the local in ELT. English is the language of communication.
In 2017 the camps will both take place both on the Danube in Slovakia and Serbia. We have realized that the Danube plays a very significant role as a symbol of flow, reflection, internationalism, transcending national borders and connecting people in a spirit of international friendship.
Reflecting on your own biography as a teacher with the sight and sound of the Danube flowing past next to you is a very relaxing way of looking at your professional identity and a lovely setting to make new friends.
In Serbia we make two visits to an island in the middle of the Danube where we explore the nature with a local expert through tasks we can repeat with our students.
In Slovakia we will actually live on a boat on the Danube. We also eat freshly caught fish from the river and make the local a big part of the camp.
Morning yoga is an integral part of each camp. It has a particularly calming effect on all the teachers who take part in it. And if you’ve never done yoga before then our instructors make sure you all enjoy it.
Both locations benefit from being in multicultural surroundings and we will explore these at both venues including visits to Hungary and Vienna at the Slovak camp.
Both locations, Sremski Karlovci in Serbia, 80kms from the capital Belgrade and Šamorín-Čilistov in Slovakia, 25 kms from the capital Bratislava and 75kms from Vienna International Airport are within easy reach of good air connections and central locations for people coming from Central and Eastern Europe.

If you are looking for somewhere to recharge your batteries as a teacher in August and to get renewed energy for the new school year, then a week at a SO(U)L camp on the Danube, for both the body and the soul, is as good a place as any for it.
In the words of one teacher from Poland who came to Sremski Karlovci in August 2016:
“Are you dreaming about perfect holidays? Would you like to meet fantastic people? Do you want to see an amazing place? Are you ready for an adventure? Do you want to become a better teacher? If you answered Yes to my questions, a SO(u)L teacher-training course in Sremski Karlovci is definitely for you.”
Here are a few memories from the wonderful journey the international group of teachers took as part of the SO(u)L Camp 2016 in Serbia
