Our purpose is to organise a joint international youth mountaineering camp. The Georgian Mountaineering Federation (MCAG) is your host and we welcome young mountaineers from international Federations coming to this camp to try Mt Kazbek with friendship, mutual respect and mutual understanding.
Most importantly, the main purpose is to have a safe ascent and for all participants to return home healthy as when they left – or more so. The second purpose is to create a friendly atmosphere of mutual understanding and mutual respect, a situation where all care about each other, help each other and put personal interests in the background. Third is to make a successful ascent.
