Costs for food, logistics and activities will be paid for by the Lions Club arranging the camp. 

There is no camp fee.

You should bring your own pocket money for personal expenses such as souvenirs, snacks, etc.

If you’re from Europe you will spend one week with a host family (before the camp starts). If you’re coming for overseas, you will have an additional week after the camp with a host family. During this/these week/s you will live with a Swedish family and learn about several aspects about the Swedish culture. Such as foods, environment, traditions, cultural activites and the day-to-day activities.

The host families will be spread out over the most South of Sweden and don’t hesitate to reach out to the other campers to meet up during the host family week to get to know each other a little. 

As a visitor to Sweden, you are entitled to health and medical care on the same financial terms applicable to Swedish residents. However, you will need to show your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).

If you are from outside EU/EEA, you are urged to have an health insurance. Otherwise you will have to fully pay for medical care yourself.

For more information about the EHIC card and how to apply for it, visit the website of the European Commission.
