We are still hiring instructors and adjusting the courses and will update you with more details when the program is set. The pictures are from our first camp in 2021.

Your place is secured after payment and no refunds are made. The invoice will not be issued until we have enough applicants to guarantee commencement. (*changes may occur)
Delivery and pick-up: Delivery during morning registration, report to the base. For pick-up, please come to the base and announce your arrival. The base contact will bring your child to you. No students are allowed to enter or leave the camp without signing in/out with the base contact. Delivery or pick-up outside these hours must be agreed upon beforehand.
Absence: If your child will be absent from camp, please contact us as soon as possible, preferably 24 hours before. We are buying and preparing food every day and if students don't show up without notice, we will have a lot of food waste.
