Lions camp Crossing Borders 2019


Clothing advise : take a warm sweater and a raincoat with you, and swimming clothes. The weather in the Netherlands changes a lot because ot the western winds from the North Sea. Be prepared for warm (max 30 degrees), but also for cold days (minimum 17 degrees) and rain. Bedlinen and towels are provided for in camp.

All activities will be arranged by local Lions clubs.

Out of courtesy: Do show them your appreciation at the end of each activity.


Country presentations will be held in the evenings. Have an impression of your country with photo’s ready (in powerpoint is perfect) on a USB stick when you leave for the Netherlands.
