Delegations from all 53 UEFA nations will gather in Wroclaw in late August for a four-day event of intercultural workshops, football, educational activities and fun. Eurocamp 2012 will bring together young people from across Europe, as part of UEFA’s social responsibility programme RESPECT your Health.

The delegations, sent by European Football Associations, will consist of two girls, two boys and one accompanying adult. A total of 305 participants will take part in Eurocamp, with 24 Young Leaders supporting the implementation process and acting as mediators.

Building on the success of Euroschools Youth Camp 2008, Eurocamp promises to be far more than just a football tournament. By bringing together young people from different backgrounds, the event will celebrate the unifying power of the beautiful game.

The participants will engage in two days of workshops on social topics such as fair play, social inclusion, healthy lifestyles and European values. There will also be a two-day football tournament played according to the football3 methodology.

Further activities on the agenda include sightseeing tours, cultural presentations and interactive sessions on networking, freestyle football and youth leadership. Eurocamp is financed by by the European Union and UEFA.

RESPECT your Health – Euroschools 2012 is the official community health education programme of UEFA EURO 2012.
