Since 2014, Funside Balaton international camps have been located in the town of Balatongyorok, at the Western edge of Central Europe's largest lake, Lake Balaton, in Hungary. Our venue is next to the Balaton Imperial Golf Club.
The venue is only 100 meters from the beach and the sports facilities, making it a really convenient choice for our campers. Funside is the single occupant of its venue for the duration of our camps: we have all buildings and facilities only to ourselves for the entire 5-week period of Funside Balaton. For travel arrangements, we have optional bus transfers from Budapest, as well as from the Budapest Airport and from the Balaton-Heviz Airport.
Our rooms are all located in convenient buildings (not cabins), in rooms of 3, 4, 5 or 6 beds. Our rooms are comfortable, all beds are single (not bunk). Our venue has its own catering service: all our meals are prepared on site.
3, 4, 5 and 6-bed bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, in a two-story building. The majority of the rooms are in this building. More photos...
This building, fully renovated in June 2013, has 3 and 4-bed bedrooms, with separate girls' wing and boys' wings. There are shared bathrooms in this building, which are right next to the rooms within each wing, in an apartment-style layout. There are fewer rooms here (12 rooms). More photos...
Our venue has a beach volleyball, football and basketball courts at our disposal, at all times. The tennis classes are held at the courts right next door from the camp, while the golf classes are held at the golf club at the other side of the venue. Our horseback riding classes are at the nearest riding center (7 km from the camp venue), while the windsurfing classes are held at the town's official beach.
Theater and other facilities
Besides the classes listed above, all other lessons and activities are held at the classrooms, as well as the indoors and outdoors theaters, inside the venue. The nearest beach is located only 100 meters from the camp, at the camping center located right next door. Inside the venue, we provide wireless (WI-FI) internet access to our campers, free of charge.
