General information for Counsellors
1. Where
The International Camp Sancelso is held in Castione at the Casa Vacanze Villa Sanceso: the address is via Risorgimento 42, 24020 Castione della Presolana (BG).
It is a residential camp; participants, counsellors, staff and managers stay there for the whole duration of the Camp.

2. When
Here are the periods (4) for summer 2024:
These are periods of 1 or 2 consecutive weeks. Counsellors take part in the periods according to their availability (up to a maximum of 4 consecutive weeks).

3. Meeting point
Milan, for departure by bus on the starting day of the chosen period (see the website for timetables and addresses); or directly to the location in Castione della Presolana by own means.
It is necessary to communicate your choice in advance.

4. The participants
The participants are aged between 6 and 17. They will mostly be Italian.

5. The groups
During each period we host 110-120 participants; these are divided according to age into 6 groups of about 20 participants each.
Each group is supervised by TWO different counsellors working in pairs (usually one male and one female).
The counsellors stay with their group for the entire duration of the period.
There are 14 counsellors per period (12 for the groups + 2 counsellors whose role is to replace counsellors who are resting, so they will change groups every day; see 7. Counsellors' free time); the ratio is about 1 counsellor per 10 participants.

7. Counsellors' free time
Each week each counsellor will have a day off (each week thus consists of 6 working days + 1 day off).
