Personal impressions: This was peacecamp 2013

I was so happy when I got the opportunity to go to peacecamp with my schoolmates and my dreams came true there. I have had the best time in Reibers.
I even enjoyed the preparation work, both the individual and the group preparation. I was the one who made a simple Hungarian folk dance coreography and I thought it to my delegation. I also made a Power Point presentation of a funny Hungarian folk song and I tried to teach it to the others in the camp. I also prepared for singing a nice Hungarian folk song and I sang it three times during the camp. It was a pleasure to make my family album too. I tried to get infromation about the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians in advance because I didn't know about it too much.
It was really memorable when the different four delegations first met at the airport in Vienna. On the way to Reibers we tried to get to know each other and I felt immediately that these children are so close to me. It wasn't a problem to communicate with them and we found that we have a lot in common.
Reibers is a beautiful, clean and tidy little village and I liked our accomodation too. All of our leaders and artists were so nice and special. They were energetic, full of life, cheerful and really enthusiastic. They welcomed us with open arms like we are not strangers. I felt I was a part of a big family and I always felt comfortable at the camp. All the activities were colourful and enjoyable. On the other hand, they were really useful too with full of information.
I especially enjoyed the culture evenings, we got to know a lot about the culture of the other countries and we could taste their national dishes. We all were treated like real talents not only in the talent show. The final show was a big succes. Everybody took part in it and we showed how we could work as a group after a few days.
The camp was proved that different cultures can work together peacefully even if their countries have conflicts with each other. We can solve the problems and difficulties if everyone wants to do that.
We decided to meet next year in Israel and we keep in touch through the Internet every day. These 10 days are the most memorable eperience of my life. It is something that I will never forget. Each one of you has made a mark in my life. I will always be grateful to Evelyn and the other leaders and artists very much. I miss you all a lot.
