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.

TICKETS & CONSERTS
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!
