Each activity is organised and run by experienced team leaders. They have an efficient kitchen crew at their disposal and several group leaders to back them up. The team looks after the participants from the minute they get up until bedtime. The instructors organise all activities and are also available during periods of individual free time. All the members of these back-up teams take time off during their own holidays to take part in the camps without much financial compensation.
