About Pocket Money

As these summer camps are all inclusive, campers only need spending money for when going out on excursions. Most campers bring between 80 and 100 Euros to buy treats, souvenirs, stamps, post cards and gifts for family and friends.
It basically works just like a bank, without all the extra charges. Upon arriving to camp the camper deposits his or her pocket money at the office, and a record is kept by camper and the office. Money can be withdrawn before an excursion. To avoid problems with exchanging foreign currency we advice that campers bring Euros with them in a sealed envelope. Upon arrival, they should deposit their money at the camp office.
