    REGISTRATION

    The registration to Side by Side will take place at Konserthuset, enter through the main entrance. Here we will note that you have arrived to the camp, you will collect your Side by Side – bag with a water bottle, earplugs, campfolder & sticker. You will also meet your” Spårvärd” who is hired by us to spend the camp with your track. You will also receive your purple t-shirt, schedule with a map and a bracelet.

     


    There are many to register, so make sure to arrive to the registration with time to spare before your first rehearsal. You can save time by registrating the children that you are responsible for during the camp yourself. You can also bring your printed booking comfirmation for us to scan but it is not necessary.

     


    If you have selected “I have no one to take care of me during the camp and I need help from the camp staff” in your booking. Then you will meet your “Barnvärd” here who will take care of you during the camp days.

     

    The participants who come to camp without accompanying adults who have filled in that " I have no one to take care of me during the camp and I need help from the camp staff " will meet his or her Barnvärd at registration. These participants will also receive special bracelets to show everyone in our staff to keep an eye on the children.

    You leave these children to your Barnvärd in the entrance to the first local venue for each day. After that, Barnvärden will lead the children around on the camp. At the end of the day (we recommend that you pick up your children either before dinner or when the day ends with camp activities), you can pick your children up at the Kansliet at Konserthuset. The camps last day ends with a concert, where we suggest that you pick up your children immediately after the concert.
     
    To our Kansli or to our Kansli phone, you as a guardian or child can always turn if you want to find each other or get help with something else.

    It is important that you always inform us in the Kansli or the responsible Barnvärd when you take your child away from the camp.

     

    ACCOMMODATION & CHECK-IN

    You who have booked accommodation at Side by Side will check-in at Hvitfeldtskas Gymnasiet Norra. You can check-in when it suits you from your first booked day between 07.00-21.00 the 15-20/6 and check-out will be made in the same hours except if you are checking-out on the 21/6. Then you will need to check out at 12.00. Here you will be assigned to your room and get to borrow a sleeping mattress. You will also receive the fire and safety rules for the accommodation.

     

    When you arrive to Gothenburg it is best to first check-in at the accommodation before registration to the camp, so you can leave your luggage at Hvitfeldtska.

    Two of our staff will sleep in each building at Hvitfeldtska each night. These have undergone fire training. All staff and volunteer will have information about the fire and evacuation procedures in place at the accommodation. During the days we will always have at least one personal in the building at all times. The classrooms will be kept locked and our staff will help you with unlocking them.

    Your accommodation will take place in dorms with about 20 persons per room. Smaller groups will often get to share their room with another group. If you have contacted us about requests about the accommodation, we will have planned for it to the best of our capabilities. Shared toilet can be found in the corridors at the accommodation. Shared showers can be found at Hvitfeltdska Norra, but not Hvitfeltska Södra.
    NOTE! Bring your own pillow and sheets/cover or sleeping bag. One mattress per participant will be provided.

    The accommodation will be staffed around the clock for your safety and comfort. At the accommodation there will be a reception which will be open 07.00-23.00. In the reception you will check-in and out.

    In the reception at Hvitfeldtska Gymnasiet Norra there is a kiosk that is open during the days where you can purchase candy and such. The kiosk only takes card or SEK.

    We ask you to follow our fire and accommodation procedures. Side by Side is a alcohol and drug free camp. This includes the accommodation. After 23.00 we ask that you will be quiet in the corridors and rooms. The main doors are locked between 23.00-07.00 and therefore you will need to stay inside during this time. Windows and doors should be closed when you leave your room.

    SECURITY, SAFETY & SPÅRVÄRDAR

    This year, we have an extra staff in every track called Spårvärdar. These follow the track through camp days and are there to support the participants and to enhance the quality of your experience.


    The concerts are arranged in cooperation with the arena's staff who follow their regular rules and regulations with guards and hosts & we have permission from the police authority for the activities where it´s required. We only have attendance control on the children who have filled out that " I have no one to take care of me during the camp and I need help from the camp staff " in their notification. The other children we assume have other adults who look after them or manage themselves under the camp, so we do not do take any action if they differ from the activities of the camp.

     

    Filming and photography takes place for documentation throughout the week in the camp. email us or talk to us in Kansliet if you do not want pictures of you or your child to be published. In all the premises used for repetitions, there are always employees on site who are familiar with the premises and current safety rules.

     

    At HSM where most of the repetitions take place, there is a guard in place at the entrance during the days when it is the most participants there. For some transfers outside the premises volunteers will be in place to show the way.


    We do not have any insurance covering any damage to the participants' instruments.


    We who arrange Side by Side want to send a special wish and pre-thank you to all the adults at the camp who help to create a safe and wonderful experience for the children on this year Side By Side!
