IKAR hut, Climbing camp for girls

Dear climbers, mountaineers and all outdoor enthusiasts.

Ilina Arsova and Ikar hut are excited to invite you at a girl's climbing camp, in Ohrid, Macedonia, during the weekend 22 - 24 of June, 2018. This gathering aims to promote outdoor sports among women, strengthen their mutual cooperation and advance the knowledge for safe training.

Ilina Arsova is a passionate climber, skier and high altitude mountaineer with 12 years of world wide experience, climbing rocks and mountains across 5 continents. In the mission to empower women and girls through sports at this camp we will promote the latest video project about women athletes in the mountaineering sports under the title "This is Her story".

During the camp we will visit most of the climbing localities of the region, while in the evenings we will have theoretical sessions about safety and training motivation. As a surprise we have special guests to share their personal stories of success in the mountaineering sports.

Please register your presence by June 5th, in order to secure your free of charge fully covered program. We will only grant free participation to 20 girls, on "first come - first served" bases. You will only need to cover your transport to Lagadin, Ohrid and back home.

Late registration will apply costs for accommodation, food, transfers and program activities.
