Poarta Oilor is an 8100m² campsite in Gârbova, Romania.
The complex is the perfect place for Summer camps, conferences, church retreats and team outreaches. It is located in the center of Romania, 40 minutes away from Sibiu international airport.
Founded in 2002 by Frits and Tineke Sleeswijk Visser, Poarta Oilor started as a bed and breakfast and has grown every year since. The owners were praying for a Christian organization to take over the campsite and its ministry and YFC Romania felt moved by God to take a step of faith and buy it.
Poarta Oilor includes three buildings for accomodation (35 rooms in total) with a conference hall, kitchen, restaurant, playground, camping area and a swimming pool. The facility will become YFC Romania’s headquarters and it creates an opportunity for the ministry to expand.
Currently Poarta Oilor hosts guests, retreats and camps all year round, with Summer being the peak season. The complex is self-sustaining and it generates revenue that YFC Romania could partially reinvest in ministry.
