Check this box if you are an adult applying for a place in a camp counselor group for a child under the age of 13. Read more about camp counselor group in the section Unaccompanied child in camp counselor group higher up on the page.

If you are a non-playing / non-singing accompanying adult, you choose the alternative Not playing, not singing / Spelar ej, sjunger ej. If you are a teacher wishing to attend the track playing your instrument you select your instrument.
Here you can indicate if there is anything else we need to know about the group or any of the participants. For example, if someone is in a wheelchair or has an illness. It is also possible to contact us via e-mail or phone.
Enter an email address for each participant. Information about Side by Side 2023 will be sent to all email addresses in the booking.
We want to be able to use the mobile number entered here to reach the participant during the camp. If the participant does not have a mobile phone themself, the number of an adult who takes responsibility for the participant during the camp must be entered here. We strongly recommend that the children who attend the camp alone bring a mobile phone so that we have the opportunity to reach them if necessary.
The information entered here is as an extra precaution so that we can reach the participant's guardian. If the participant is of legal age, the name and mobile number of the next of kin should be entered instead.
Nothing containing pork or nuts is served at the camp. When it comes to special diets, you can choose vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, lactose-free and milk protein-free diets. You can indicate allergies and requests for other special diets. These requests are accommodated as far as possible.

You will see at the top right of the form that the amount changes when you enter the number of nights. Accommodation costs SEK 150 per person per night. Unfortunately, we have had to raise the accommodation fee due to increased costs. For accommodation, breakfast and some dinners are included. Please note that you must be 13 years old or live with an adult to stay overnight at the camp.
The Summary tab displays all the information you entered in the previous steps. Check carefully that everything is correct. If you want to change something, click Back at the bottom left. Once you click on Book, it is no longer possible to go back and change anything in the form.

In the Payment tab, you first choose whether you want to pay by card or invoice (only companies / organizations).
Payment service (betalkort) means that you enter card details and complete the payment directly before completing the booking. It is possible to pay with VISA, Mastercard or Maestro.
Invoice (faktura) is available if you represent a company / an organization and wish to receive an invoice instead of paying by card. You can also specify whether the invoice should be sent by email or to a postal address. Please check carefully that the email address is correct if you want the invoice to be sent by email.

When the booking is complete, separate confirmations will be sent to all email addresses you have entered in the booking. The main booker's (Person 1's) confirmation contains all participants' information and a bar code. Other confirmations contain only one person's information and a barcode. Print and bring the confirmation with the barcode to the camp. It will be used for on-site registration. If you do not receive the confirmation, please check your spam folder first.
