How much pocket money do you need?
For this we are reluctant to help, because everyone has different views on how much pocket money he needs.
Apart from that, it depends on whether you have booked a trip with full board or whether you still need money for meals and how long the trip is.
If the pocket money goes out early, there is the possibility of subsequent pocket money transfer. We ask your parents to contact us by phone.
What about the room / tent occupancy?
The room layout takes place on the spot according to the age and the separation between boys and girls.
Are boys and girls allowed to share a room / tent?
In general, this is already possible, you are still under 18 years, but we need the consent of your parents.
Of course, the number of people who want a room / tent must always rise.
When the trip is booked, it may well be that an extra person comes to it, should be free at one more place.

The travel documents will be sent to you 10-14 days before the start of the journey, provided that the remaining payment amount has been received by us.

(skate with the participants and ensure a safe and enjoyable pleasure).
Can my parents reach me on the spot?

However, this should only happen in emergencies, because the camp leader would otherwise be on the phone with your parents
the whole day and can not devote anymore to the participants and their tasks.
