The camp has been operated by the local villagers and the village association since 1980 until 1993 when it was transformed into a village-owned limited company. In 2018, on Midsummer’s Eve, there will be a 25-year celebration with local food and music by a local troubadour. We endorse a sustainable way of living and the local economy by supporting small, local businesses.
