Writing and walking on Brac

JUNE 11-18, 2022

The camp Writing and walking is a great chance to combine your writing with walks in the extraordinary landscape by the Adriatic sea. You don’t have to decide beforehand if you will do mostly walking or writing, or both. In the evenings we all gather for a nice dinner and the possibility to share ideas and get inspired by each other.

Location: the village of Puntinak in Selca on Brac Island in Croatia. Price: € 500, which includes accommodation and evening dinners. You stay in fully equipped apartments with 2–3 other participants. Your flight/travel to Brac is not included.

About the camp: This is a week with full freedom of choice day-by-day! Every day we offer a shorter or longer walk, starting and ending in our base camp in the village of Puntinak, near Sumartin. You can take part in the guided daily stages of hiking -– more comfortable or more challenging -– along the Adriatic, through olive groves and vineyards up to small stone chapels with beautiful views, through small villages on goat trails or tractor roads and paths surrounded by millennial stone walls. Or you just stay in the area to write on your writing project, is it for fun, professionally or academic. You will find lots of peaceful places, indoor or outdoor at your own choice. Whatever you choose we are ready to support you to make this a great stay. You also have access to bicycles if you want to explore the local villages of Selca and Sumartin on your own. We offer stand-up paddleboards and other equipment to enjoy and play in sea and on land.

Dinner: We put a lot of effort in preparing and cooking healthy, delicious, local food. Our great granite outdoor kitchen is perfect for slow eating in a relaxing social atmosphere. The Brac stone grill is a masterpiece in itself and the barbecue evenings with the ongoing view of the Biokovo mountains and Makarska riviera are true highlights for everyone staying in Villa Puntinak. The food is mainly vegetarian, but we will also serve fish and meat, if you wish! Local wine and olive oil is of course on the menu to really get the Mediterranean touch and get into the relaxed mood. If you want to learn more about cooking good vegetarian food, you are welcome to participate in preparing dinner during the week, which might make it easier to keep the healthy eating when you come home. But you are more than welcome to just relax and enjoy the prepared dinner if that suits you better. The camp runs from the 11:th of June in the evening, starting with welcome dinner, to the morning the 18:th of June. This is the view from the venue where you will stay:

If you want to arrive earlier to Villa Puntinak you are welcome from two o´clock, we can help you to book your own taxi here. If you arrive early in Split you might choose to go to Makarska by bus and then take the ferry to Supetar, close to our venue.

There are many central, affordable accommodations, and lots to discover, including good food and happy shopping.

EXAMPLE OF PREVIOUS CAMP: OCR Quarry

2020

Where: Brac Island in Croatia

Located in an abandoned quarry our OCR playground sets a rough and tough environment that inspires to really get down and dirty, and that’s what OCR is all about. In this, our OCR Quarry, we’ve built an obstacle packed course that is like no other course you’ve ever seen. It will literally take your breath away. So whatever gets your heart pumping, be it climbing, swinging, lifting or technical… We have it all! The site is located near the town of Selca and just a short run from our basecamp and the beautiful Adriatic Sea. The area is also full of nice trails and rocky surroundings, while running through plantations of olives, figs, almonds and much more.

Camp 1: April 4th – 9th Camp 2: April 9th – 14th Camp 3: August 24th – 29th Camp 4: August 29th – September 3rd

When we started our first camp in 2018 we had a very basic course just under 400 m, consisting of 15 obstacles. Though it may not sound much, combined with some steep running, it was enough to wear you out. Before the start of the camps in 2019 we added a lot of obstacles and extended the course, so it’s now close to 800 m and have 33 obstacles. We added some technical stuff like Pegs, Climbing Grips and a Rig, so even if you’re more advanced and experienced, you’ll still get a real challenge. Under 2020 we will continue to build new obstacles and make the course bigger and better… Follow us on Instagram for updates and new obstacles as they are revealed
