The building was renovated by entrepreneurs, parents and students of Szentes town, and the youth of VE-GA, and now it serves as training centre and camping place of VE-GA.
Magyartés has only 300 residents. It lies close to the Hármas-Körös river next to a nature conservation area. The main building of the training centre is suitable to host 30 people in two rooms. It has a kitchen suitable for warming the meals; two bathrooms in the house and additional toilets and basins outside; a theatre room with wooden floor and a separate apartment for the camp leaders. The garden is suitable for putting up several tents.
We kept the prices very low, only enough to maintain the building, as our primary aim is to make our programmes accessible for anyone without cousing serious finantial problems for the parents, schools and youth organizations – it is well known that they have limited financial tools.
In one season we have 10 tematic camps, 2 training camps, a summer university, international camps and forest schools here.
About our camps:

  • Public life camp for students: developing students’ public life in the schools and at settlements; joint yearly programme with Transylvanian youth organisations.
  • Environmental protection camp: our aim is to develop the environmental consciousness of the participants.
  • Music camp: making music – a very important part of our culture – accessible for children, making music part of their everyday life.
  • Exchange projects: exploring the nature of shared European citizenship by intercultural learning with Italian, French, Polish, Swedish, Finnish youth. (Made possible by EU funds)
  • Forest school: our campsite and training centre in Magyartés is ideal for forest school lessons, lying next to a natural reserve area.
  • Summer universities: VE-GA has been organising summer universities in the following topics: youth public life; self-help and counselling systems; community mental hygiene; methodology of community development and team building; VE-GA’s training modules; leadership, counsellig and pedagogical methods.
