International youth exchange on exploring people’s sustainable lifestyle and relation to nature, based on outdoor activities for all young Naturefriends.
One week surrounded by wonderful green…
One week far away from the city…
One week of exploring what beautiful nature can offer you!
What is it about?
Have you ever thought about trying out a more natural and greener lifestyle? The ability to make something useful, creative and cool out of the things you find in the woods?
This summer, International Young Naturefriends launch a brand new project, a new style of summer camp and youth exchange, where we would like to explore ways to live in closer connection to the nature. We will do eco-cooking, baking cakes with solar energy, learning and trying out basic survival techniques in a middle of a forest. And we wont forget about art either! We will create musical instruments and play them, have a fairy-tale night with campfire, creating land art in the beautiful surroundings and much more.
Simply, well have fun and good times, explore, share and discover together, because that’s what a youth exchange is about!
The name? Born To Be Wild!
Whom is it for?
The activity is designed for young naturefriends from our network, who are ready to discover nature together, and are open to new adventures and learning by exploring and experiencing.
If you are between 18 and 30, coming from either Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Germany or Belgium, able to communicate in English and willing to go through this green adventure with us, dont hesitate and register!
Where is it taking place?
Born To Be Wild will have its base camp in a beautiful countryside of Eastern Bohemia, Czech Republic, far from civilisation, in the middle of meadows, fields and forests. We will stay at a camp site, so be ready for rather natural conditions.

We would also like to ask you to offer some small workshops connected to nature, ecological way of life or any other “green” issues. Please share your ideas with us while answering the questions which are part of the registration.
And if you would like to come but cannot pay the fee?
We dont want money to be an obstacle for anyone to participate to our activities; on the other hand we want committed and motivated participants, who value the opportunity. Therefore, we employ the principle pay what you can, and a little bit more. So do contact us if money is an issue, but you do want to come.
