No wonder people say that Bátor Tábor is a hidden wonder world: it is surrounded by meadows and forests from all sides. Located 60kms north of Budapest, near a town called Hatvan, a former pioneer camp was renovated in 2007. Throughout the construction, close attention was paid to design, in order that we meet the standards necessary to serve children with serious medical conditions.
We continued the rebuilding process in 2010 and as a result of this 3 new volunteer accomodation buildings were constructed on the site of the old cottages. The new houses were realized with the support of the Danish VELUX Foundations.
A great number of supporters joined hands so that the investment of more than 2,7 million Euro could be successfully implemented. The list of those supporting the construction is available here.

In the heart of the camp there are 7 cottages shaping a circle. Each cottage welcomes 14 guests with two, five-bed rooms, a four-bed room and a lounge. Each bedroom has a separate bathroom.
Central building and dining hall
In the central building at Bátor Tábor, there is a dining hall that seats160 people and also includes training halls, offices and storage rooms. The restaurant is enclosed by glass walls on three sides, so the marvellous view is open to the lake and other areas of the camp.
In the restaurant there is a kitchen, which prepares food that suits the special diet needs of the children. Our kitchen can fulfil any needs.
In the friendly, fairy tale-like mini-hospital, which is surrounded by colourful flowers, every medicine and equipment is available. The medical building includes two exam rooms, four rest rooms, a medicine room, a store-room and a barrier-free bathroom.
On the landscaped campsite, every programme has its own venue such as the horseback riding area and horse pen, a rowing lake with a small island and a pier, an archery field, high and low ropes courses, turf football pitch, indoor sports hall, “Hideout” forest pathway, a music chamber, an arts and crafts store-room and a drama chamber.
High ropes course
The course provides a variety of experiences for the greater community and individuals alike. The wire rope system, that was built on 15 posts (each
Bátor Tábor is a beautiful place indeed, and we are very proud of it. In the near future we will work on making even more of our dreams come true on the campsite, like a theatre and a new stable and riding area.
