YOTA Croatia

YOTA 2022 Croatia

 

About the event:

YOTA Summer Camps have been held for the past nine years to encourage more young people to join ham radio and inspire youth to work actively in maintaining the hobby alive for they are the future of ham radio.

Dates of the event:

YOTA Summer Camp 2022 will take place from 6-13 August 2022.

Location of camp:

The camp will be located in the city of Karlovac in central Croatia and not far from the capital Zagreb. Karlovac is known as the city of four rivers.

Participants:

A team consists of one team leader and maximum three team members. We would like to ask that member societies select motivated youngsters with an organizational and hands-on mindset. This request requires a commitment from member societies to support these youngsters when they return home after the event so that they might be inspired by the camp to continue to work actively to attract more youngsters into ham radio.

Team leader – Age 18-30 years, a person who is active with youth activity and has the potential to inspire more youngsters to do the same

Team members – Age 15-25 years; – have not been on previous YOTA summer camps.
