Only highly educated employees know and recognize the wishes of modern campsite guests
The Croatian Camping Association (CCA) actively encourages and invests in the education of employees and young people, and it is for this reason that for many years it has been organizing educational and specialized workshops as well as lectures within secondary and higher education institutions. The association`s employees hold an annual lecture as part of the „Camping resort management“ program which is held at the Faculty of Tourism and Hotel Management in Opatija, and where they present the latest marketing trends in the camping industry.
The CCA thus decided to systematically award the best participant in the MKR program, and the student who won the most points in the final exam was given a free stay in one of the best Croatian campsites. Encouraging investment in human capital and lifelong learning contributes to the acquisition of additional knowledge and competencies of program participants, as well as the development of the Croatian camping products in the direction of quality differentiation and specialization, and all of that to meet guest expectations and achieve significant competitive advantage of the entire Croatian camping sector.
The participant of the program who achieved the best result in the written exam is Josipa Ždravac from the company Plava Laguna. The CCA congratulates Josipa once again!
The CCA's award given to Josipa was a free stay at the Falkensteiner Premium Camping Zadar, in the period from March 19th to 21st, 2021. The campsite is located only 3 km from the city of Zadar (Dalmatia) and offers guests accommodation on pitches, in glamping tents and mobile homes, but has also a rich sports and recreational facilities offer, such as children's playground, tennis courts, boat and bicycle rental, sailing school, diving and windsurfing, as well as numerous other activities.
Josipa shared her camping experience with us, stating:
“Staying at the campsite was wonderful, I was housed in a Mobile Home which is set in a circular zone. The mobile homes are from the manufacturer Adria, very nicely and modernly decorated.
What surprised me the most was the number of guests who were in the campsite last weekend, a very large number of mobile homes were filled with local guests (Zagreb, Varaždin, etc.).
The employees at the campsite are very kind and the service is top notch, I also had the opportunity to use the wellness at the nearby Funimation Hotel by Falkensteiner.” (Josipa Ždravac, winner of the prize)
Exceptionally this year, CCA decided to award Dario Buršić, who as a participant of the Program, during its field trip in the campsite Ježevac, participated in rescuing two injured swimmers, showing exceptional courage and self-sacrifice.
As the largest professional association in camping tourism, CCA has been proudly cooperating with the Faculty of Management in Tourism and Hospitality for many years, within which the "Camping Resort Management" program is held. The mentioned program is intended for all candidates who want to expand and improve their previous camping knowledge, strengthen their own entrepreneurial activities, and it is especially recommended for everyone who wants to start their own projects in camping tourism.
