Checking out Camp Kristiansand:Odderøya Island
The conference kicks off at the beautiful Odderøya island, which is situated a short stroll from Kristiansand city centre, and will be our first 9IATC camp.
The local organizing committee recently had a stroll around the island to check out the potential locations for pitching tents, facilitating workshops, and enjoying the long Nordic summer nights.
A number of discoveries awaited us at the island: lush green grass lawns, sun-kissed yellow flowers, trails and climbs, art galleries, a party barn, an underground network of tunnel remnants from WWII, and you know, the occasional snake and troll cave, a lavvu of course, only to arrive at the traditional waffle house at the southernmost point overlooking the breath-taking view of not just one, but two, light houses appearing in the hazy horizon where sea and sky meets.
In September we will travel into the mountains to explore our second 9IATC camp: Hovden. We can´t wait to share our upcoming discoveries with you!
