Campsite Locations

There are about 150 registered Summer Camps across Europe. Although Camping is relatively a new tradition, compared to North America, during the last 2 decades Summer Camps in Europe have become more popular. Main Summer Camp Host Countries are: Germany, United Kingdom, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, France and Sweden.

Most of the campsites are located in remote areas, deep in the forest. Although most of them have phone lines and internet access, the possibility of spending long hours in front of a screen is limited.
