Our training camp lasted 3 weeks and we did our trainings with about 30 staff. Everything here is very good-organization, nutrition, accommodation, training halls and so on. People are also very hospitable. During the training camp, we did not have any difficulties, everything was organized at a high level. We also had a great opportunity to have a walk, and while we were there, had a good time and relaxed”.
