Have questions about the accommodations at Side by Side? Here you find answers.
At Side by Side we serve lunch and dinner during camp and fruit between meals. We are working hard to lessen the excess amount of food we serve at the camp, therefore some of the meals are only for those at our accommodation.Information about which meals are available for everyone and which are only for those staying at our accommodations will be made available closer to camp start.
We do not serve any food that contains nuts or pork. When you confirm your participation (after having been offered a slot), you may state any special dietary needs.
Side by Side is a” Kranmärkt” (tap certified) event. Meaning that we do not serve any water on bottle and instead provide our participants with a refillable bottle that you can refill at any water source. (Swedish tap water is drinkable.)

Camp accommodation means that you sleep on a mattress, on the floor, in communal sleeping rooms. The number of participants staying in each room will be limited for security reasons. We will not mix participants from different groups in the same room. Mattress is available upon request, but you need to bring your own pillow and cover/sleeping bag.
