Kids Camp: We still have a few last places available

The Hostyn Children’s Camp will take place again this year, for 3 weeks, from 3 to 23 July 2022.

After about five years with no increases, we’ve had to raise our prices by a small amount. The new prices per child are:  440$ for one week, 840$ for two weeks and 1,040$ for three weeks.

Our prices are still some of the lowest in North America for a sleepover kids camp. You can find applications on our website at:  www.hostyn.org in the "Children's Camp" section.

For more information, you can contact Josef Maxant  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ,  tel. 450-465-4844.We are still looking for camp counsellors. Counsellor reward is now $500 NET per week.

 

Czechoslovak Picnic

Czechoslovak picnic will take place on the 24th of July, right after kids Camp. There will be great traditional food served at noon, beer and other Czech and Slovak cultural activities. More news to come!

A bit of history: This event was originally called “Pout”, then the “Czech picnic”. The name was changed this year to “Czechoslovak picnic” in order to promote participation by both Czechs and Slovaks and their friends. We are looking forward to seeing everyone there! If you would like to participate or help, please email: Mathias Krejci at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

Cabin Rentals:

New pricing - 36$/cabin/night. Due to increasing costs of maintenance, our cabins prices have increased from 32$ to 36$ per night. All proceeds from cabins rentals are re-invested back into camp repairs and administration.  As part of our mandate, we are also trying to keep our prices as low as possible so that individuals with limited financial means can still come and enjoy Camp Hostyn.

 

Reservations:

Between Brigada and Kids Camp (June 3th - July 1st), the Camp will be open, but by reservation only. After Kids Camp, from July 24th, the Camp will be open for cabin rentals as usual until the end of the season (approx. to mid October).

To reserve, please call us at: 438 389-8522; or email us at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
