Karlovy Vary day campers may enjoy all aspects of international summer camp in Europe experience, but return to their homes or hotels at night.
Youth Site-Seeing Trips
As part of our commitment to be one of the best summer camps in the world, Camp Carlsbad includes two youth site-seeing trips per week. Destinations include Prague (historic capital city), Pilsen (2015 European Capital of Culture), Marienbad, and several other nearby locations, including castle tours, rafting, and the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.
A Typical Day at our International Summer Camp in Europe
A typical day at our international summer camp in Europe begins with a pleasant wake-up call from our residential staff and dorm parents. After waking up and getting dressed for the morning, campers enjoy a hot or cold breakfast buffet in our Friendship Hall, dining cafeteria.
After breakfast, day campers join our sleepaway campers. Together they begin their morning programs, which are pre-selected during the booking process.
When the morning lessons (English, Tennis, Golf, or Film,) are complete, campers return to campus for lunch. They then have some time to relax and get ready for their afternoon sport, activity, or site-seeing trip, depending on the day.
Upon returning to camp, the day campers say farewell for the day, while extended-day campers and overnight campers head to dinner for another delicious buffet, with a variety of hot and cold, meat and vegetarian options.
Dinner is followed by a variety of social activities, including campfire nights, game nights, talent shows, and other fun summer camp experiences.
When the fun is over, extended-day campers head home, while our overnight boarders return to their rooms to relax and get ready for bed.
