The first weekend of August, sixteen Wikipedians gathered from all around Hungary and neighboring Serbia to take part in the first multi-day Wikipedia camp. Based in Nagykanizsa, a small town in the southwestern part of the country, the editors shared their experiences through Wikipedia quizzes, lectures and movie screenings and had a genuinely good summer time barbecuing, hiking and sightseeing in the nearby nature reserves and towns.
The four-day WikiCamp was organized by Wikimedia Hungary, the local chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation, with the invaluable help of the local Wikipedians.
We hope that the camp will become an annual event along with our ongoing projects, a conference on the tenth anniversary of Wikipedia in 2011 and various contests to improve the quality and depth of the Hungarian Wikipedia.
