Packing Tips for International Camp 

Your child will be very excited to head off to camp. To sum up, it’s in your best interest to help him/her pack. Although he/she may be able to do this on his/her own, we suggest you oversee the packing.

  • Packing list
    Create a camp packing list using the recommended list from the camp. However include other necessary items that your child may need, i.e. his/her medication.
  • Label
    Label all of your child’s items with his/her name.

Pocket Money for the international camp

Upon arrival, students may deposit their pocket money in the camp bank. Consequently, they can take their money as needed.

Spending money is generally used for the purchase of souvenirs and small purchases in the town shops. In other words, it includes postcards, postage stamps, batteries, candies, etc.

It is recommended that each student bring about 50 Euros of spending money for each week.

Finally before departure, any unspent money will be returned directly to the student.

How much?

This is a difficult question. Kids all have different needs. Therefore they don’t spend the same amount during the camp.
In other words, everything is included in the price so they only need pocket money for shopping.

Travel Arrangements for international camp

How to make sure children reach the camp safely?

Thousands of kids and teenagers go on holiday without their parents every year and they have a great – and perfectly safe – time.

Many of the risks that are associated with children flying alone can be overcome by using common sense and taking a few basic precautions. Consequently, the tips mentioned later on will help both children traveling alone and for parents to deal with some problems that may be encountered.
