Spiritual & recreational camp for young people
The program is conceived as a spiritual recreational camp for young people. The camp site is the remains of the ancient priestly desert. The space itself imposes a camp program. The working part refers to reconstruction of the drywall, cleaning and landscaping, and the contribution to ensuring the necessary living conditions in the camp.
Spiritual work focuses on revealing the depths of one’s own heart, interpersonal relationships, and relationship with God. Relatively scarce and demanding conditions of life in this “desert” are aimed at fostering a clearer distinction between our wishes and our deep needs.
Educational dimensions are achieved through learning to live in poor conditions of the Brač karst and getting acquainted with the history of desertion on Central Dalmatian islands dating back to the first century of Christianity.
Recreational aspect refers to the time spent in the wonderful ambience and the enchanting beaches of the southern slopes of the island of Brač.
CAMP CAPACITY | 20 persons per term
August 5th – 11th

CAMP LOCATION | The camp is located in Dračeva harbor near Murvica on the island of Brač. Murvica is 5 km away from the famous tourist destination Bol (Zlatni rat beach).
NOTES / ADVICE | The topic of the camp is defined by the area where the priesthood Dračeva port is located. These are the remains of desert huts (walls), which are located at some 300 m above sea level. From the main road to the Desert leads a relatively steep goat’s path (easy walk 10 min). Whoever intends to be a participant in a camp should take into account the requirement of a geographical position, ie it should be physically ready to go down and ascend several times a day.

Here you can get all the information about the ways of reaching Brač. The camp program ends with lunch on Sunday. On Sunday departure is possible via Supetar Split. Or early Monday morning catamaran for Split. Camp organizers will arrange transportation from Murvica to Bol.
