Simple summer at Modrave

Description

Come and taste where the Lord is spending His summers. Through physical work and nurturing plants, we will come to know His love for all creatures.

Simple summer in Modrave. The word itself says - we will seek God in simplicity, and only in simplicity He is willing to be found. Together with Him, we will listen to crickets in the olive grove, and we’ll get to know the various winds. At the sea, we will swim and dive into the depths of communion with Him. Through physical work and nurturing plants, we will come to know His love for all creatures. Come and taste where the Lord is spending His summers. Some of the well-known slogans for Modrave were "Hotel with countless stars" and "The place where God spends His summer".

Special Requirements

Sleeping is in big military tents, on folding beds, in a sleeping bag. Staying in a tent during the day is not recommended due to high temperatures, and at night the tents close due to high humidity. 3 meals, coffee and 2 snacks are provided daily (lunch and dinner are cooked). The food is simple and nutritious. If you wear contact lenses, also wear prescription glasses due to high dust and wind. Drinking water is used only for cooking and drinking. Brushing your teeth, bathing / showering is in the sea - that's why it's important that the products you use are environmentally friendly!! For transport and walking on stones, we recommend that you carry things in a backpack, not in a suitcase. At this program we don't use cell phone :)
