Special Programs (only Swing Kids and Swing Teens, week 1 and week 2)
Swing Kids and Swing Teens operate from a partly external administrational platform; for detailed information, please visit their special page under headline Swing Kids and Swing Teens.
Once in Herräng, depending on what kind of accommodation registered for, please follow the applicable instructions below:
General Accommodation: please visit either our General Accomodation Office (Sundays-Fridays) in the Folkets Hus Area, or our temporary General Accomodation Office (Saturdays) in the School Area.
Private Accommodation: please visit the Private Accommodation Office located in the Folkets Hus area.
Camping Accommodation: please follow the instructions under website headline Information – Accommodation, leading up to two alternatives: Tent Camping Accommodation or Caravan Camping Accommodation.
On the arrival-Saturday and before 15.00, it is possible to drop bags in one of the dance tents (Smalls Paradise) in the School Area, located some 300 metres east of the Folkets Hus Area.
A basic budget once in Herräng, should include the cost for the classes, the accommodation and the food, plus a reasonable amount for additional expenses. Sweden in general, if compared to other European countries, is probably slightly more expensive than the average. Please also keep in mind that Herräng doesn't have any ATM-machine, and that cards cannot be used everywhere. Accordingly: please bring enough cash to take care of all those small expenses that might occur.
Herräng supports an underlying but obvious profile around healthy food and side services of health character. On the other hand, the event indirectly and unwillingly supports two totally different phenomenons: bacterias and lack of sleep. Neither of those are unfortunately under our direct control. The first one is of course supported by the fact that the camp hosts citizens from some 50 to 60 countries every year, the second is related to a mix of our extensive evening- and night programs, and our here and there slightly primitive alternatives for accommodation. In clear words: please eat properly, please drink properly, please sleep properly and please watch out for all those cocktail bacterias!
Well, and first of all: Swedish summers are unpredictable. They can appear with a smiling face, but they can also provide chilly winds and lots of rain. Our advice is to keep the both scenarios in mind when preparing for the journey. Besides that: dance shoes, party clothes, toothbrush, a first line of defence towards the sometimes occurring mosquitos ...
Even though Herräng is a very small village, the community in combination with the camp administration is able to offer a good handful of alternatives as far as food is concerned. The internal options include Heaven's Kitchen, Bar Bedlam, Café Blue Moon, Annedals Pizzeria, Ice Cream Parlor, Banana Club and the so called Russian Kitchen (which is a kitchen open for students to perform their own cooking). The external alternatives include Kuggen (the grocery store), the kiosk (partly a hamburger stand), Marina Restaurant plus several food wagons run by individual entrepreneurs. Vegetarian and vegan options are available at most of the above alternatives.
