Theme and logo The logo is presented on the front page. Pernille Nellemann came with
the idea behind the logo which is created by the artist Hanna Orlof. Pernille and Hanna
are both deaf.
The background for the logo is that we want to show that children from the whole world
get together. As Denmark is hosting the camp and our national bird is the swan, we find
it related to add the swan to the logo. As cute details we have made the swan do some
sign to indicate that the camp is for deaf signing children.
The theme “Many Nations – One Dream” tells what we are – from many different nations
– and all have one dream. The dream may indicate many dreams, such as good future,
freedom, equal rights for the deaf as well as the hearing people etc.

Participants The camp will take place according to the rules/guidelines set by WFDYS.
From each WFDYS member country two deaf children and one deaf leader can
participate. The child must be between 10 to 12 years old at that time. One boy and one
girl are preferable. The leader must be between 18 to 30 years old. The leader must be
fluent in one sign language, be able to work in an international team with leaders from
other countries, must have primarily responsible for their campers, and must participate
in overall camp activities. During the camp the leaders will have some tasks.
Both the children and the leader must be deaf and use sign language. WFDYS and DDU
strongly encourage you to follow these rules! If someone does not respect the rules the
person will be asked to leave the camp at the moment!

Visa and vaccinations Some countries need visa and others do not. See the lists on the
last pages. But we encourage you to check it too. No vaccinations for any countries are
needed for entering Denmark.

Price and donations The Danish Deaf Youth Association works hard to rise money for the
camp to make the price pr person as low as possible. The fees are 250 Euro for
developing countries and 350 Euro for the remaining countries. We also do our best to
raise money to support the travel expenses for the developing countries. For all
countries we encourage you to seek some foundations in your home country for the

Tentative program A complete program will be added in the 2nd announcement but at
the moment we can disclose that: every day will have a theme such as Deaf History,
Creative Day, and so on. We will make excursion to some typical Danish destinations
such as our famous LEGOLAND Park and others. Surely – you will get lots of new exciting
