Lions Youth Exchange Camp in Hungary

CAMP 2022: Hidden Treasures of Eastern-Hungary



The Hungarian D-119 Lions Cabinet met on 11 March and reviewed the status of the camp. It is my task and sad responsibility to share this information with you.

The situation near the Ukrainian border over the last two weeks played a role in the decision.

- The war is taking place in our neighborhood. The camp was to be held seventy kilometers from the border. The outcome and timing of the war is unknown.

- The clubs in the area are currently busy with the supply of refugees, which is exhausting all their capacity. We are serving. “We serve”

- The refugees are flowing into the region in a completely uncontrollable way from a pandemic point of view, which makes the health aspect of the camp, its bubble nature, impossible at the moment.

- Peace in the region is secure for now, but the same cannot be said for the future. Lions members are currently unable to guarantee the safety of the campers.

Our Lions members are working with all their spare capacity in fundraising and distributing donations. Those who are not there are collecting donations, those who cannot find financial assistance are sending warm clothing to the area, You as Lions members do not need to know the details of what it is like to have hundreds of thousands of displaced people in an area.

It is therefore our sad duty to take a non-emotional decision in the situation that has arisen. On the basis of the current facts, and in order to protect the health and lives of our campers, we cannot hold the camp this year, despite proper preparation.

We deeply regret that we had to make this decision. We are sorry.
