How does it work for campers under the age of 18 years?
All campers, including the ones over 18, need to sign a disclamer. Underaged campers need this approval/signature from a parent. This disclamer will be sent to you by e-mail. The purpose of the disclamer is mainly to inform that everyone at WHAT! Summer Camp participate on their own risk. No specific insurance is included. We also need contact information to a parent or a person responsible for the camper.
What stuff do I need to bring?
All campers need to bring their ski/snowboard gear including skis/board, pools, boots, helmet, and back protection. Gear such as skis, wetsuits and life jacket for the water ramps is supplied by the organiziation but you need to use your own ski boots and helmet. If you want to skate, bring your skateboard. If needed also bring protection for skateboarding. The weather in Folgefonna can vary a lot. Expect sunny summer days as well as a bit of rain and chilly weather so make sure to bring clothes for all kinds of conditions. Sheets and towel is provided at the hostel.
If parents want to come to the camp, where can you stay?
There are almost always some spaces left att Gjestetunet where all campers stay. So if you want to come with your kid, you are welcome to make a reservation at http://www.folgefonn-gjestetun.no. To be sure, make yuor reservation in time!
Where do you fly in?
The closest airport is Bergen Airport, about 2 hours away from Jondal.
Is there transport provided from and to the airport?
Yes, you can book a transfer through us.This is NOT included in the price, we will soon update you with a affordalbe price for those of you that travel by plane. Monday’s are the days of arrival and Sunday’s are the departure day’s. We’ll pick you up/drop you off at the airport in Bergen. You’ll have to e-mail us your flight details. There can be some waiting at the airport as campers arrives and leaves at different times at the day but we’ll do our best to make the transportations run as smooth as possible. Hopefully we can organize that you do not have to wait so long at the airport but as the trip to Jondal is over 2 hours we will have to wait for campers to arrive at different times so that we can fill up the bus. We be there with you but we want you to be aware of that there can app two hours of waiting at the airport. Generally we can advise you to arrive around 1.30-3.30 pm and leave 2-4 pm if you can find flights to match these hours.
How many campers are there at each camp?
The number of campers can vary from around 20 to a maximum of 75 persons at each camp. We reserve us the right to cancel a camp week if less than 15 campers have signed up. Then the whole fee will be refunded.
What is the level required? Do you need to be a good rider?
As the ages as well as the skills may differ we have the possibility to have different groups adapted to different needs.
What kind of skiing/snowboarding is provided at What! Summer Camp?
We’ll mainly ride in the park where the are plenty of features such as big jumps of different sizes, boxes, rails etc. But our coaches can also give you tips in freeriding- both technique, stlye and jumping smaller cliffs/drops is the terrain allows.
Cancellation or what happens if a camper gets injured or ill before the camp?
If you cancel your booking at the latest two months prior to the camp start, 85% of the camp fee is refunded. If a camper gets injured or ill and because of that not can take part of the camp 100% (except a booking fee of 500 nok) of the camp fee is refunded if you can show a medical doctor’s certificate at the latest 30 days prior to the camp starts, 50% will be refunded more than one week prior to the camp.
