SITE DESCRIPTION:

The mission of the Kapraluv mlyn Scout Environmental Education Centre is to enable first-hand experience of children and youth with the natural world. Surroundings of Kapraluv mlyn are unique textbook of natural history awaiting to win hearts of young readers. The centre underwent complete reconstruction in 2011-12 leading to a model eco-friendly building (low-energy construction standard, solar panels, heat pump, recuperation of wastewater and air). The capacity of Kapraluv mlyn is 61 beds + campgrounds (100 – 120 scouts). Kaprálův mlýn is Scout Centre of Excellence for Nature and Environment (SCENES), member of the Goose Network and holder of the Moravian karst regional product brand for accommodation services.
