General Information

CATERING

We will serve three meals per day, which are included in the price of the course. We provide all plates, cups, and utensils. You will also find a small shop on site where you can buy a variety of groceries and products.

We use an automatic, high-temperature dishwasher, assuring good hygiene at a minimal price. So please do not bring your own plates (since the machine will not accept them).

MEDICAL INFORMATION

Please keep in mind that the doctors on site only offer first-aid and emergency medical attention, without exception. In cases of non-urgent sickness or injuries, you will have to go to Immenstadt to see a doctor. Be sure to have valid health insurance and to bring a first-aid kit with you to the course.

Please also keep in mind that if your health insurance provider is not within the European Union, you will have to pay for treatment and medication out of pocket.

TRANSLATION

The entire course will be given in English with simultaneous translation into many languages. It will be possible to rent an FM radio on site; nevertheless, we recommend that you bring your own digital FM radio. It will be more comfortable for you and convenient for the team.

HELP

The entire course is organized and run by the joyful work of a full-time volunteer team, supported by hundreds of helpers throughout the day. If you have surplus energy to give a few hours and become part of this great team effort, get in touch with the friendly folks at the Job Center (close to the cafeteria).

If you’d like to help in preparing the course—building up or dismantling—please write to helpers@summercourse.ec.

CHILDCARE

The “Kids’ Corner” will be open in the mornings and afternoons, where we create a colorful program for children aged 4 to 14, with plenty of support from parent helpers. (Parents, you can sign up to help out on site.) There is no official childcare in the evening, but we invite parents to organize movie nights among themselves.

For the toddlers (0 to 3 year-olds), we have professional childcare every day 10:00–13:00 and 15:00–18:00.  

We are also still looking for team members, so if you would like to join, please write to helpers@summercourse.ec.

LAUNDRY

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a laundry service for everyone at all times. We only provide limited service in emergency cases for families with children. So please don’t be surprised if the laundry cannot accept your requests. And bring a few extra pairs of everything when you pack!
