Frequently Asked Questions
Will there be accomodation provided?
Accommodation fees are included in the fees that are paid to the team coordinator. She will settle the bill with the place you stay. Do not expect to have a single room.
Will there be food provided?
We do not provide meals, self-catering is around 6-8€ a day, which is extra to the weekly fee paid.
Do I need to make my own travel arrangements?
There are limited options to go to Šid by public transportation. We can arrange airport pick up and drop off. This will cost additional 30€ each way.
What should my health condition be like?
If you have allergies or some medical history (depression, food disorder etc.) please make sure to point that out to the sending field BEFORE arranging your trip. The conditions at the camp are poor and diseases can spread easily. Make sure you have the basic hygiene and medical supplies with you that you need.
Do I need a visa?
Anyone with a European passport, not needing a visa for EU countries, or in possession of a Schengen visa can enter Serbia. Otherwise, we are not able to provide an invitation letter for visas. Please check with your home office for more information.
