Keep in touch

Sending your child to summer camp is a unique experience, but we understand that it can also be a nerve-wracking experience for parents. That's why don Quijote makes it easy for you to keep in touch with your child via the internet or phone.

On arrival, the camp participants receive an international phone card that can be activated at reception and charged with € 5 or more. The calling card works from any phone, whether inside the camp or outside while the students are on an excursion. This card can be topped up at any time.

Students can also use their private cell phones to make calls, but only during the specified times.

One month before the start of the camp, the parents will receive an emergency number on which they can reach the camp leader.

Students also have access to computers and email.

pocket money

don Quijote provides all participants with a camp bank where they can deposit their pocket money for safekeeping during their stay. Our supervisors note the deposit and the payments and help your child deal with the money correctly.

If additional money is required, parents are responsible for transferring money to their child. don Quijote cannot process transfers or withdrawals for the students.

Leave the camp site

We understand that older campers have different needs and would like to enjoy more freedom to explore the campground, visit town, or meet friends.

Students who meet our age requirements and whose parents have signed and given a declaration of consent are allowed to leave the camp alone on certain days and at certain times. Each camp leader is responsible for determining the days and times.

* This is not possible at Camp Marbella Alemán.

Clothes and camp uniform

We recommend that you purchase the camp uniform package so you don't have to worry about what to pack. The camp uniform package consists of 5 t-shirts, 1 sweatshirt, 2 shorts and a baseball cap. The students receive their clothes on the first day of the camp. The camp uniform package for your child should be ordered at least 10 days before arrival.

Laundry

A laundry service is included for our participants every two weeks. In order to simplify this service, we ask the participants to clearly identify their personal belongings with their full names and to bring a laundry bag with them.

Health insurance

don Quijote offers first aid supplies to the students. In addition, all camp participants in Spain are covered by standard health insurance, which is included in the program price. Parents who want to take out additional insurance should contact the health insurance company in their home country.

When registering, parents should inform us in writing of any chronic ailments, allergies, special dietary requirements or other needs of their children. Parents who give their child any medication should make sure that they also have the written instructions on how to take them correctly with them. In addition, we advise students with special medical requirements to bring a medical report with them.
