AGBU Cairo’s mid-year 3-day ecological youth camp will now have an accompanying one-day excursion for parents and those wishing to visit the Wadi El Hitan & Wadi EL Rayan protectorates with the guidance of  Dr. Kohar Vartougian-Varjabedian, Prof of Sciences at the Cairo University on Sun 1.2.2009.

The eco-educational 3-day camp is for youth aged 11 to 16 at the Wadi El Rayan’s Ecological lodge “Zad el Mosafer” near Al Fayoum. The camp will be an excellent opportunity for our youth to have a glimpse of the ecological life in Egypt, its countryside as well as its desert with its beautiful sand dunes and fossils of Wadi El Hitan, which since 2005, is considered by UNESCO as one of the World’s protectorates. Interactive lectures on Ecology will also be given to them during their 3-day stay.
