The summer camp took place near one of the most famous destinations in Macedonia, the Ohrid Lake. The hotel we stayed in was 14 km out of the main city. A total of 15 people participated with ages varying from 20 to 37 years old. The camp lasted for 3 days, from 24th in the afternoon until the 26th in the afternoon.

The first day all the participants arrived between the hours of 14:00 and 18:00. After everyone arrived we had a short session of presentation of our organization and the program.

The second day was full of activities. Before lunch, we had а 2-part workshop. The first part was a presentation of a short history of LBT woman in sports in Macedonia and the second part was a group work workshop where everyone gave ideas on how we can strengthen the LBT community. After the lunch, we had free time and time at the pool so the participants can relax and get to know each other better. In the afternoon we had the first basketball workshop. The workshop was held by our friend that is an ex-basketball player. She taught the other participant the rules of the game and she showed them some basic moves. Unfortunately for us when the basketball workshop ended it started to rain so we were not able to finish the basketball matches, and we continued with group work inside of the hotel. After the dinner, the day ended by all of us hanging out at the hotel and playing group games like mafia, the dream, etc. Unfortunately for us when the basketball workshop ended it started to rain so we were not able to finish the basketball matches, and we continued with group work inside of the hotel. After the dinner, the day ended by all of us hanging out at the hotel and playing group games like mafia, the dream, etc.

Luckily the last day was sunny so we had another session of basketball matches before we left the hotel and did some sightseeing in the city of Ohrid.

All the participants were really happy to attend this summer camp and expressed that it was a fun and educational experience for them. The only remark they had was that it was too short. All of them are now interested to attend our next activities and basketball matches.
