On August 25-30, 2015, the 6th Karkonosze Family Rally will be held. Its organizer is the Polish Federation of Camping and Caravanning (PFCC), and the rally covers all of Poland.

As every year, the program of the Karkonosze Family Rally is of a tourist and recreational nature. The organizers plan sightseeing tours and familiarize participants with the attractions of the Jelenia Góra Valley and the Karkonosze Foothills, as well as active recreation - games and fun at the campground. Guests will be able to relax at the foot of the Sudetes and spend time together at the grill.

During the ceremonial closing of the rally, all participants will receive commemorative diplomas and small gifts.

Meeting place - Wiśniowa Polana

The rally crews will meet in Miłków near Karpacz , at the guarded and fenced Wiśniowa Polana Campground . It has 80 places for tents, caravans and campers. Its owner is the Wiśniewski family, and the campsite itself is one of the most beautiful and best managed facilities of this type in Poland in the category of up to 150 beds. In 2010, he won the Mister Camping award in the category: the most beautiful camping in Poland . He was also the winner of this competition in 2012-2013.

The owners of Wiśniowa Polana can be proud of the fact that they were the first in the country to organize a caravanning rally for people with disabilities. They have been inviting volunteers to the Karkonosze Family Rally of Camping and Caravanning since 2008 - this year caravanning enthusiasts will meet with them for the sixth time. Apart from the swimming pool with Olympic dimensions 50m x 50m, which is the biggest attraction, and guarded by WOPR lifeguards, guests have at their disposal equipment rental, places for a bonfire and a volleyball court.

Success achieved by your own hands

The history of the campsite is very interesting. It all started in 1996, when Janina and Jerzy Wiśniewski acquired the land with a wild garbage dump and a neglected former German swimming pool. The couple put a lot of effort into bringing the area to a working condition. It gained the respect and admiration of the inhabitants of Miłków, independently planning the land from the reservoir in Marczyce. The opening of the swimming pool was a natural course of events.

Initially, tourists crashed here in the wild, staying overnight in tents. There were no sanitary facilities - showers were only available at the basins of the pool. Encouraged by their visitors, the Wisniewski family registered with the Marshal's Office as Camping 142 "Wiśniowa Polana" . It is a facility that was created without external financial support, only with the family's own funds. The activity of Wiśniowa Polana is the result of the hard work and persistence of the Wiśniewski family.
