Traveling Campin the High Tatras Mountains

CAMPS BRIGHTER MINDS 2020

EN | SK 


We are pleased to invite children (9-15 years) to a Mid-term traveling camp full of adventures in the High Tatras Mountains from the 16th of Feb – 22nd of Feb 2020. We would like to get to know our mountains well and we can see them best with Uncle Zdenko, our good friend, tourist guide and a former guardian of the Tatra National Park. We are already looking forward to his interesting stories about all mountains, animals or streams, which ordinary tourists would not normally see!
The number of children is limited to 20, so please register in time, before 20. 1. 2020.

We will travel to the Tatras and back by train. The train departs from Bratislava at 2:13 pm and arrives to Tatranská Štrba at 6:16 pm. The way back from Tatranska Strba is at 11:45 am and arrival in Bratislava at 3:48 pm. During our stay we travel by train, tram, cog railway, cable car or bus. Parents are therefore kindly requested to provide their children with a Pass for free travel by train (up to 15y) which will be issued free of charge by a ŽSR desk worker while you wait. You need a 2×3 cm photo, a Parent’s ID and a child’s ID card: passport or birth certificate.

When: 16. 02. – 22. 02. 2020
Price for the holiday camp: 275 €
This price includes accommodation, transport, alpine insurance, all-day meals, and program costs.
Accommodation is in the mountain newly opened hotel Štrba http://www.penzion-strba.sk/ (switch to Eng), with all-day food.

What it would be for a trip without our doggies? The dogs Caramel and Cato will be traveling with Gabika and dog Happy with Terezka. It will be a great ride and a cheerful bunch! 😊
