Funside Balaton international camp 2024

We have lots of new things for you this summer!

We have a lot of new things for our campers this summer: for the first time in 10 years, the range of activities at Lake Balaton will be greatly expanded, and you can also expect new weekly themes and programs! We are preparing 27 different classes for you to choose from (you may select two for each week), which is still the widest selection in the region. Our overnight summer camp is for kids and teens of ages 8 to 17, welcoming local children, as well as campers from close to 30 different countries. This year's sessions go from July 7 to August 10, at our usual Lake Balaton venue in Hungary.

At Funside, we are proud of having a young and well-prepared team of camp leaders, carefully chosen and trained in order for us to provide the best camp experience to our campers, also underlined by our exceptional 5 to 1 kids to adults ratio at camp. Funside Balaton is a bilingual camp, with English and Hungarian both being official languages, while all our staff, including local camp leaders, speak English as well. Our camp is open to any children meeting our age requirements and language requirements, just choose from our long selection of classes below to get started! You may share the same room with your friends, if you request it on your sign-up form and meet the criteria. Check out the Top 10 countries represented at the camp here. Check out our Facebook reviews from parents and campers here.

The 2024 registration opens on the 28th of February, at midday, local time (GMT +1).

Camp Schedule and Activities

In 2024, we’re looking forward to welcoming our campers with brand new weekly themes and old favourites (including the already announced Campers’ Choice week), along with new afternoon and evening activities!
Every day from Monday, February 12, for 5 days we will unveil a new weekly theme and its detailed program each day on our Facebook page! After that, you will also find all the important information about the new themes and programs on this page!

Sessions start on Sundays and end on Saturdays. When staying for multiple weeks, your stay also includes the Saturday nights between the sessions. Learn more…

The afternoon and evening activities are the same for all of our campers, regardless of which classes they choose for the mornings. For example, if you are attending the combination of English and Dance Camps, and you have a friend who is attending the SUP and Sports Camp, you will still see each other at the afternoon and evening programs and may even share the same room if you request it on your sign-up form and meet the criteria to share a room.

Location

How to get there

The Funside Balaton international camps are held in Balatongyörök, 10 km from Keszthely. The camp is only 100 metres from the beach, so both Lake Balaton and the sports fields are easily and conveniently accessible.

Address

Funside Balaton,
8313 Balatöngyörök, Szépkilátó hrsz. 707/1.

By car

After the Balatongyörök Szépkilátó (signposted), turn right at the first opportunity. Continue for about 50 meters and you will see our team members helping you to drive to the camp.

By bus from Budapest, with Funside group

Campers have the option to travel in a group, supervised by our teachers, from Budapest to the camp venue and back, by bus.

By train

If you are travelling by train individually, we can arrange to pick you up at the 'Becehegy' station between 11 am and 2 pm on the first day of your stay. Please notify us of your arrangements at least two weeks in advance.

By plane

If you are travelling to the camp by plane, please let us know about your flight details as soon as possible, so that we can help by arranging airport transfers to the camp.
