Reibers waiting 4 u
Last friday Ronny and I went to Reibers to see what it looks like and found it nice and clean, ready to welcome you next sunday



They made all the repairs we had asked for and the youth hostel now looks really nice




This is the information board, where you will find important messages and information regarding our activities




We bought a few things to fill the kitchen.



With some food on the table the kitchen looks really welcoming



We can have snacks and prepare things for our culture evenings in this kitchen



This is Evelyn's store room - no access to it without permission ;-))



This is where the large group will take place. We'll have to squeeze a bit to fit in, but we'll manage



And this is the restaurant where we will take all our meals, run by Mr. and Mrs. Boden and their assistant Regina

Where peacecamp 2010 will take place
peacecamp 2010 will take place in Austria, at the youth hostel in Reibers in the Waldviertel. You can see a lot of information about the place in http://www.8ung.at/jugendherberge/



This is what the house looks like:
It used to be a school and was turned into a youth hostel.

This is the street in front of the house....

and a look into the village.

Behind the house, there is a courtyard...

... with plenty of open space and a place for a bonfire. Keep your fingers crossed for nice weather!

In this kitchen we will be able to prepare some food. Feel free to bring some spices and ingredients for your favorite dishes. It can be fun to cook your national food and to share it with the others.

We will take our meals in the nearby restaurant, and use the rooms around the kitchen for our workshops



All pupils will share two large dormitories, one for the girls and one for the boys.....

.... and the adults small and simple bedrooms

It won't be luxurious, but just as nice and cosy as we'll make it.

All of us will have to bring sleeping bags and/or bedsheets
and maybe things to decorate the place and to make it a real "home" for us for the time we spend there.

There are washing places for the girls as well as for the boys. Don't forget to bring soap, shampoo, your toothbrush and your own towels and slippers.


We also have two larger rooms for our workshops and discussion groups


There is a nearby pond...

it's not really fitted for swimming


....but there are many beautiful spots for outdoor-games and activities.
