What additional expenses should you expect to have?

  • Individual arrival and departure. The summer camp begins and ends on the set dates listed. The arrival and departure times are not included in the set dates. The participant must pay for his or her own travel costs to the project site and expenses for acquiring a visa. In the project announcement we try to include travel information and tips on how to travel cheaply to the summer camp.
  • Postal delivery of visa documents. If for participation a visa is required, ARSP will send the letter of invitation via postal service. Participants can choose between three options of postal service. Costs for postage and packing vary: 3,50 Euro normal letter, 9,20 Euro for registered international letter and 11,30 Euro for registered express international letter.
  • Insurance.We will take out accident and liability insurance for all participants. For non-German participants who are attending a summer camp outside of their home country, we will also take out an additional health insurance. Since proof of insurance is required upon applying for a visa, we suggest that a private health insurance for travel abroad be purchased to avoid problems upon entering the country. All German participants must acquire insurance for travel abroad themselves. Information is provided by the insurance companies.
  • Private expenses/ spending money . ARSP covers the costs for practical and content-oriented work and leisure activities. Please remember to bring enough spending money to cover your private expenses.

Cancellation Policy

  • Should you for any reason have to cancel your participation, we ask you to let us know as soon as possible. If we receive your cancellation at least 5 weeks before the camp begins, ARSP will refund 80% of the participation fee. If the cancellation occurs later, no refund will be provided since it is difficult to fill the opening in so short a time and ARSP is left to cover the costs of booked lodging, etc.
  • If a cancellation is made at least 5 weeks before the camp begins, ARSP will refund 80% of the participation fee. No refund will be provided for later cancellations.
