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.
