Join us at the Liberty English Camp!

Experience summer with freedom!

Are you passionate about liberty and want to meet more people like you? Do you want to conclude your summer in both pleasant and propitious way? Do you want to network with famous politicians, businesspeople, and academic experts? Do you enjoy nature and charming rural landscapes? Liberty English Camp has it all for you.

With us, you will get three intense days of lectures, debates and both formal and informal integration with people from all over the world – all in the beautiful surroundings of the Lesser Poland (Małopolska) region.

Liberty English Camps are organized every year in different parts of the world, attracting people interested in spreading or exploring the idea of liberty. During our seminars, we discuss issues such as freedom of trade and doing business, personal liberty, minimal government, entrepreneurship and responsibility which is inherently intertwined with freedom.

Below, you can see pictures and a video from our previous Liberty English Camps.
