Latin Summer Camp - guide
Each year there are approx. 30% couples and 70% singles from the whole country, as well as the rest of Scandinavia and some from the rest of Europe, who participate in our fantastic Camp.
All of our instructors are super professional and among the best in the world.
The classes are very intense, in the morning you are in the same class 3 hour, with different teachers. In the afternoon when we have 2 hour workshops, it is as usual, completely optional which instructor you choose, and you can change every day as it suits you the best.
You can register for the camp without a sign-up partner or with a sign-up partner.
If you want a discount, you must find a sign-up partner of the opposite sex. You can try to find a friend yourself who wants to participate (as previously mentioned, it doesn´t have to be someone who are at same level as you or someone you are living with) and you register individually. The discount will be returned to your card just before the start of the camp. The registration partner must register no later than 48 hours after you registered, in order for you both to receive the discount. We try very hard to have the number of men and women evenly distributed, and it almost always works out perfectly. If you already dance, then just ask someone in your dance class, if our wonderful Salsa, Bachata & Latin Summer Camp would be something for them.
Staying at Bosei
Our Salsa, Bachata & Latin Summer Camp takes place an hour’s drive from Copenhagen at the beautiful Idrætshøjskole Bosei, Evensølundvej 5, 4720 Præstø
It´s a fantastic location with the best facilities and all of the students have been super happy with the place!
We have previously held the camp at Møn Friskole, Rødkilde Teaterhøjskole and at Langebæk Course and Retreat Center – so we have been around quite a bit. But this place is definitely the best to date.
Facilities at Bosei
The Sports college’s main building was originally a sanatorium, and has since been expanded with Japanese-inspired buildings.
There is a swimming pool, gym, various activity and sports halls, as well as fantastic natural surroundings. There is also a Japanese library, creative workshop, music room and much more. Around the college there is a forest, a lake, football field, tennis courts, mountain bike tracks etc. Kayaks are available, and the college is also close to the beach.
As a course participant, you can freely use all facilities without extra charge.

Closing party on Friday 4th of August
We finish on Friday with a big party event. This is an open event where everyone can participate. The party is included in the package/price for Salsa, Bachata & Latin Camp participants. Guests who do not participate in the camp can register for dinner and party with or without accommodation.
We recommend buying a ticket well in advance. There is a limited number of spots, and registration works on a first-come, first-served basis.
