International Camp Sancelso: info for parents
Parents can call between 20:00 to 21:00 to talk to their children. The secretary’s office is available, for your every need, every day from Monday to Saturday from 9:00 to 11:00. We kindly ask parents and relatives not to call every day, to promote the child’s integration and to allow everyone to receive phone calls especially at the beginning of the holiday period. Management is committed to calling the families with the utmost promptness if necessary.
If they want, the kids can use their mobile phones from 20:00 to 21:00. The mobile phones will be kept secure in the office where they can also be charged.

The organization provides, only in case of need, a small laundry service (underwear, t-shirt or other). For hygienic reasons, the items are washed at a high temperature with disinfectants. It’s not suitable for delicate and expensive garments.
For the overnight camp out, each camper should bring a sleeping bag.
If the camper does not have a sleeping bag, the organization will arrange the loan in addition to a disposable paper bed sheet: the cost is 3,00 €.
The fee is at the discretion of the Parents; we suggest a maximum amount of € 50,00 per week. Pocket money means, e.g. small personal expenses like ice cream/snacks, admission to museums and shows, lift facilities, local transfers, any medical examinations and personal medication, etc. At the end of the camp the balance of his small personal expenses will be given to the participant. The sum must be included in an envelope with the completed “external activities and personal expenses” form and placed in the participant’s luggage; at the arrival in Castione, the partecipant will give it to his/her counsellor (and then to the Secretary).
For expenses related to local transfers and ski lifts, a flat rate of € 5.00 per week will be deducted from the share for personal expenses.
