With just a few days left before the youth team fly to Sofia for the start of this years' Bulgaria Summer Camp excitement is rising and final preparations are being made. As ever, a Trussell Trust team together with Lipnitsa staff will be taking 40 vulnerable kids to the beach and there are a lot of details to sort. Transport, accommodation, team members and treats for the kids: most things have been put to bed but there's always something that sneaks up you and at the last minute pops in to your head to induce panic- I'm not telling what it is this year but it will be sorted very soon...

The team flies on Monday 20th Aug and will head to Botevgrad to link with the translators and the kids from the local House of Opportunity. On Wednesday the team will board the bus for Kranevo with the Lipnitsa kids and head for the sun. We hope that you will join us each day as we try to bring you a flavour of what goes on at camp through words, pics and video. We'll try and tell you about the children and the challenges they face and how the Trussell Trust tries to help them and other marginalised young people in Bulgaria.

There is a very positive start to this year's trip: we are already fully funded for the 2012 camp because of some very generous donations from supporters and fundraisers alike. Thank you to everyone who donated to the cause this year- it really does help us to make sure the kids have the very best of fun while they are with us at the beach.

There is a short video clip from last year to give you very brief glimpse of the fun to come. There are also lots of old trip blogs on here from previous camps and Christmas box distributions.

We hope you'll catch us on Monday...
