Youth Summer Camp
Oasis Taste of Sahara is also a place for inter-cultural experience for the youth. We have organized international summer camp for Spanish and Saharawi youth. For ten days the young people lived and played together in the Oasis learning from each other and sharing the cultures of their countries. It was a great success and a start of many newfriendships.
The Oasis has modern accommodation, toilets, showers and a Turkish bath, all nicely tiled, and illuminated with solar panels. Our intention is to combine the comforts with some of the Bedouin culture, where the customer is a king. The Turkish bath is a combination of shower and sauna and is very healthy for different ailments. The experience of the Turkish bath in the desert is something wonderful and extraordinary.
