Arrival on July 21 📆

Hello, I’m Dominik and I’m responsible for the service team. I’ll take care of the transport for you. I would like to give you important information about the arrival process on July 21, 2024. Our meeting point on this day is at the airport in Düsseldorf. Those of you who arrive at Düsseldorf Central Station by train should then take another train to the airport. The same applies to those arriving by bus near Düsseldorf Central Station. You can simply walk 5 minutes to the main train station in Düsseldorf and take the train from there to the airport. If you want to travel by plane, it is best to come directly to the airport in Düsseldorf.


Travel with plane ✈️

If you land at Düsseldorf Airport and see someone wearing an orange vest as you disembark, it is an employee for assistance services for passengers with disabilities or reduced mobility who is coming to meet you. The staff member will accompany you directly to the waiting room, where you will be welcomed along with other participants and a DBA. Afterwards you will all be driven to the camp together by bus.


Travel with train 🚅

Those of you who want to take the TRAIN directly to Düsseldorf Central Station and continue to Düsseldorf Airport should best use the S-Bahn (see the logo at the top right of the video). After you get out, someone from our team will be waiting for you wearing a yellow safety vest with the camp logo (see the picture at the top right of the video) and will take you directly to the waiting room. You will be welcomed there together with the other participants and a DBA employee. As soon as everyone has arrived, you will be taken directly to the camp by bus.


Travel with bus 🚌

For example, those of you who want to take the Flixbus directly to Düsseldorf Central Station and then continue to Düsseldorf Airport should best use the S-Bahn (see the logo at the top right of the video). After you get out, someone from our team will be waiting for you wearing a yellow safety vest with the camp logo (see the picture at the top right of the video) and will take you directly to the waiting room. You will be welcomed there together with the other participants and DBAs. As soon as everyone has arrived, you will be taken directly to the camp by bus.


Arrival time at Düsseldorf Airport ⏰

Anyone arriving by train, bus or plane should come directly to Düsseldorf Airport. It is important to respect the time following our work. At the Düsseldorf Airport we offer buses to the camp. There will be 2 buses leaving at different times and taking you directly to the camp. Those coming at Düsseldorf airport should arrive before 4:00 p.m. CEST at the latest. Important who is coming by plane should arrive before 16:00 p.m CEST, and who is coming by Train/Bus should arrive before 15:00p.m CEST and from Düsseldorf Station needs to go to Düsseldorf Airport If you have any questions or something is not clear, please feel free to send us an email or contact us at transport.camp24@edbyouth.org.


Departure on July 31 📆

The departure to your country will be on July 31, 2024 In the morning there will be breakfast. We will leave together from the camp by buses at 9:40 a.m. CEST We will arrive at Düsseldorf airport at 11:00 a.m. CEST Everyone can travel there independently, be it by train, Flixbus or plane. If you still need support from DBA at the airport, please tell us your decision. A very important note for everyone: Please book your plane/bus/train tickets after Lunch at 13:30 p.m. CEST! If you can book tickets for after, that would be perfect. I hope everything is clear. If you have any questions or something is unclear, please feel free to send us an email or contact us at transport.camp24@edbyouth.org.


Travel to other days 📆

People arriving by train, bus or plane and arriving at the camp on 21 July will be organised accordingly. Example interpreters, deafblind assistants, trainers and board members arriving on other days are asked to let us know their exact travel details so that we can make the necessary arrangements for transport to the camp. Shuttle transport will be arranged for those arriving on 21 July. If you arrive after 21 July, you will need to take the train to Recklinghausen Central Station where we will pick you up. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us at transport.camp24@edbyouth.org.


Reimbursement 💰

Now that the information about transport – time of arrival and departure – is clear, we give you important information about the budget. Once you are approved as a participant, you can start checking about your tickets for transport (plane or train or bus) You can ask your organisation/ association about the amount of the budget and it is important to follow the limit of the budget. If you exceed the budget, you will need to pay for it yourself. So it’s better to search for cheap alternatives like www.edbyouth.org, You can check this website to see the information about your country’s pricing because each country is different. Please, when the payment is done, keep the documents. When your association approves the documents, send all documents to us, and when the camp is finished, around winter, we will give you back the money. Thank you.
