Romerike Folk High School
The camp is at Romerike Folkehøgskole, Akershus, which is located 7 km from Oslo Airport Gardermoen and 45 km from Oslo. The school has accommodation with double and single rooms, kitchen, dining room, room for indoor activities and good outdoor areas. There is a small lake close to the school, so bring your swimwear.
Group registration must be done by the 12th of June. It would be great if all the Estonian participants could register the lates by the 31st of May in order to book flight tickets in advance with cheaper price.
The Camp costs 1500 NOK = 157 euros - and includes accommodation, all meals and courses (including materials).
The expected travel cost is around 100 euros. We are going to apply for additional funding from Estonian Cultural Endowment (KULKA) and hope to reduce the costs for participants by that (will be announced and clarified with the participants in the beginning of July).
Further information on transportation will be sent after the registration deadline has expired.
