Heraklion (Iraklion), on Crete's north coast, is the island's capital, chief port, and main industrial center. With a population of some 174,000 and sprawling modern suburbs, it's also the fourth biggest city in Greece. In ancient times, it was the port of Knossos, and the Minoans would have traded gold, ceramics, and saffron from here. Europe's oldest known civilisation (they lived on Crete between 2700 BC and 1450 BC), the Minoans were remarkably sophisticated - they loved art, nature, and sport, and it seems they were a peaceful people who worshiped female goddesses. Today, most visitors to Heraklion come here specifically to visit the Minoan palace of Knossos (below).

DAY 11– Athens - depart to airport- flight home

***The daily program is flexible and can be changed after discussions with your coaches

Main idea of the Program


Like ever – we will get high level wrestling - trainings and competitions with the local clubs in Athens and Crete. We will have also Greek, Russian and Bulgarian coaches to do a TECHNICAL CLINIC and show different style - so you can learn a lot from this wrestling school.


We will accent on the Wrestling Part in Athens –where we can find many and strong senior age wrestlers (boys and girls). That’s why we stay 5+1 days in Athens…So we can make more HARD training and GOOD Competitions! That will be our HARD PART of the trip.

Second Part will be more cooler part. We stay 4 days in Crete where we still will have a SPORT PROGRM…but not so hard!! Because this is a nice vacation area and we have to profit from the great beach and combine the sport program with relaxing and get FUN( because you have big boys over there..!)


George Camps start in 1989y … and start with the IDEA OF SPORT AND CULTURAL EXCHANGE ..!!! … and always do a GREAT MIX of SPORT & CULTURE !

We have all together : training-competitions-learning new technic //

**see the culture of the area- learn the history of the countries and make many new friends, meet young people and enjoy .

Coming back to USA this young people are already grown-up people!

They learn many new technics and change their vision for the wrestling style. They learn a lot for the World history and culture and make many new friends! They become INTERNAITONAL PEOPLE !

They become a WORLD CITIZENS !!!
