Örkény, the location of Csutorás camp:
Örkény is located in the very centre of the country, 50 km-s away from Budapest and 24 km-s away from Kecskemét.
The camp itself takes place in Pálóczi Horváth School of Profession and Student Hostel, which is situated in the centre of the town with nice parks around and int he vicinity of the Mayor Hall and the Catholic and Lutheran Churches. It is 2-2.5 km-s away from the railway station of Örkény. (
By the means of railway Örkény can be reached ont he Buapest-Dabas-Lajosmizse-Kecskemét line. Trains leave from Nyugati pályaudvar and Kőbánya-Kispest in Budapest, while from Kecskemét, Lajosmizse and Táborfalva int he opposite direction.
By bus the town is to be reached ont he Budapest-Dabas-Kecskemét line. Buses leave from Népliget in Budapest in addition to Kecskemét and Szeged. (Express buses are to be avoided since they neither enter Örkény, nor do they stop there.) The bus stop is in front of the Church int he town centre approximately 300 metres away from the hostel.
The location can also be reached by car. In this case speedway M5 or Road 50 are to be travelled. (Please note, that there is a charge for using the speedway.)

We ask everyone to bring with themselves a notebook, pens or pencils ( media equipment, if they happen to have; e.g.: voicerecorder, video camera, camera) , musical instruments, a beautiful  voice, happy feet some hight spirits as well as swimming suit and sports clothing. (The latter is especially recomenden for those who wish to participate in the anually organised football game of the camp.) Please, do not forget your social security card and any medicine to be taken regularly either.

The ultimate programme can be read and downloaded on our website:
Also in the confines of Csutorás Camp the CSUTORÁS BEACHFEST is to be organised on the Lido of Dabas on 11 August, Friday afternoon. The price of admission is included int he Camping fee. We play music, engage in craftsmanship, dance and present ourselves in the territory of the beach, on grass and concrete as well a sin water and pool. (We make some irregular ’Water music’ with Hungarian pipes and some wild dancing in the pools instead of bathing rings.)

Böde István, quality award winner choreographer, a student of the Hungarian College of Dancing and executive assistant of art for the Dance Club of Kecskemét and Harkai Csilla are to teach Moldvaian Hungarin dances between 6-13 August.

In addition, we would like to kindly ask everyone to bring their respective performance dresses (In case of folk bands and dance clubs at least one) because on the night of the Gala everyone has the opportunity to perform on stage in those besides the uniform Csutorás T-shirts. A swimming suit and suntan lotion might come in handy on the beach.

The 32th Camp will be ended by the anually organised but now higher than ever quality Gala of which a TV-recording is to be made by Media Flash. (It is possible to book accomodation and catering for guests only attending the Gala too.)

Either in the evening of 12 August after the Gala or next morning. The hostel must be left until 10 a.m. on 14 August (Sunday) at the latest.

We honestly hope that everyone will enjoy themselves in Örkény and head home after a week with great memories, new friends, knowledge, songs, instrument skills and profession related acquintances until a reunion in the 32th Csutorás Camp.

You might just as well memorise and note in your calendars the time of the 33th Csutorás Camp next summer: 5-12 August 2018.
