At the Army 2007/08


Students will stay for two weeks “offline” at the camps and experience a 24 hours and 14 days training in practical aspects of field work. The topics will range from team-training, communication, basic skills in orientation and survival in nature, guided units in mountaineering, rescue, simulations of man made and natural disaster situations, civilian actions in armed conflict situations, spiritual and physical training. Special training units for civilians with a background in conflict transformation will be offered by the Fire Fighters, the Army and the Red Cross in their specific environment.
The nights will mostly be spent in wooden tepees and tents (with stoves in case), the days in the marvelous natural environment of the Alps. The aim of these weeks, besides practical training, is the formation of a real group of colleagues. Readiness for team spirit will be highly demanded. Students are requested to take basic personal camp equipment such as sleeping bag, mountaineering-boots and warm clothing with them.
