  1. Ruud van der Meer

    Eindhoven, North Brabant, Netherlands

    We are interested in going to this camp!
    Will there be children too?

  2. Pascal

    Duisburg, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany

    Ruud, I've been to this camp twice,and actually I wouldn't bring my children who are 7 and 13. If other people bring kids, I might change my mind.

    To go with kids, I recommend Mont Royal Summer Camp in Traben-Trarbach. It's bigger, there'll be more kids (including mine) and there's more stuff to do in the close surroundings.

  7. Barbarroja

    Libramont-Chevigny, Walloon Region, Belgium

    Interesting event. Some comments.
    If we don't have a car and want to attends events or go shopping what is the way to do ?
    I see that pictures taken at the event are made available to the all world at this page : http://www.belgiumsummercamp.be/contact-us/
    in respect of private life (going to a summer camp and partying there is something private that everybody don't necessarily want to show to all the world) is it possible to be out of pictures ?
    Is it possible to propose activities ?

  8. Alex FromRio

    The Hague, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands

    Yes, I'd like to be out of pictures too, and I actually try to escape them, as often as I am sober... ;-)

    On a more serious subject, there were loads of rumour about Belgium camp on eventbabel yesterday on whatsapp and I've simply ignored it, since I already paid for tickets via the purportedly official website and received confirmation with the name of the organizer on it, so now I'm a bit confused.

  9. Marga Tielemans

    Rotterdam, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands

    @Barvarroja, we will check this out. And will be more discrete with pictures in the future if people dont want them online or be more private. Thank you for your comment.

    I'd like to be on the pictures but i am hypercarnivore so all vegans should stay away from me as far as possible ;)

    Hi Folks,

    I´m Chef Jekky from Thailand. I will be there with 1 of my Chef friend and Heiko;a friend from Germany. We will cook Thai food for meat lover, vegetarian and vegan :). Hope to see you guys soon.

    Best,
    JK

  12. Sven Van Den Meerssche

    Brussels, Brussels, Belgium

    @ Couch$urfing: You don't want to be spotted with vegan food near you because you are afraid people might think you eat that? :)

    @ Chef: nice to hear you'll join the camp. Please note the cooking facilities at the camp are limited to a barbecue. Of course, you can always bring your own equipment.

  13. Couch$urfing

    Antarctic Great Wall Station, Antarctica

    @Sven: Thanks bro, we are aware about the cooking facilities at the camp and are bringing our own Bangkok-style kitchen on wheels :) Hopefully we can find eggs in Belgium until then otherwise we need to improve the Pad Thai recipe :)

  14. Joren Wesemael

    Aalst, East-Flanders, Belgium

    For any chef that might come, if you want I can bring some sharpening stones since I'm a knife sharpener so we can sharpen those puppies.
