At a glance
Eckernförde is not only the home of our dear colleague and beach volleyball luminary "Fuchsi", but also the perfect location for our People 'n Play Camps. The beautiful, wide south beach is the most natural beach section of Eckernförde and at the same time the so-called active beach, and offers the best conditions to become a small mecca for beach volleyball in the future.
The youth hostel is also not too far away and thus you have a magnificent view of the Baltic Sea and the Eckernförder Bay. In not even 5 minutes you are at the beach, which offers besides beach volleyball also possibilities for diving or surfing, for boat tours or deep sea fishing. Our beach volleyball courts are located on the south beach, about 15 minutes walk south of the hostel. A short walk north along the beach brings you to the small, lively old town of Eckernförde, with its many small stores. Here is also our new accommodation. The coffee and apartment house Heldt, that with its cozy rooms a little further from the beach but the closer to the beautiful old town is located and can be reached by bike in about 10 minutes.

THE WEEK AT A GLANCE
- Sunday: Arrival day with check-in & get-to-know-you tournament
- Monday: Optional joint activity (coming soon) in the morning or Free Play, "Beat / Team-Up the Coaches" in the afternoon, official welcome in the evening.
- Tuesday to Friday: Training (mornings)
- Tuesday to Saturday: tournaments (afternoons, except Saturday all day)
- Sunday: After breakfast departure
Sunday is the arrival and departure day of a camp week (for 2023 our trips will be extended by one night, from 6 to 7 nights). At the beginning of your camp, you can check in with our event team on Sundays from 3pm, before we then organize a get-to-know-you tournament from around 4:30pm. Don't worry if you arrive later: the mode is chosen in such a way that you can join or quit at any time. On Monday we offer a joint excursion/activity (coming soon), you can book this optionally.
In the afternoon there will be a "Beat / Team-Up the Coaches" event, so you can already play against/with our coaches & trainers before the camp or watch with a cool drink, before it comes to the official welcome around 6:30 pm.
The training sessions always take place in the morning from Tuesday to Friday (in each case in two blocks - so e.g. parents can train staggered). In the afternoon, from Tuesday to Friday, various tournaments are held. Saturday is completely reserved for our big final tournament. You can take part in all our tournaments - no matter if you have a camp pass or a training pass - for free if you register in time. Of course, there will be enough courts available for free play during the training sessions and tournaments (for this you need the camp pass). And who knows, maybe there will be another match of the coaches in the evening after the tournaments, which you can watch with a cool drink in your hand.
Add-On: On Tuesday and Saturday we offer, outside the regular training and tournament times, additional special beach volleyball workshops for a fair fee.

To save the environment from plastic waste, please bring your own water bottle to the camp (alternatively you can purchase a water bottle from us).
- packed lunch
Not only on but also off the court we have a lot to offer at our beach volleyball camp in Eckernförde. In order to keep the special beach me feeling even after the training, we always try to go to a common location in the evening to get to know each other better and to exchange ideas. So if you haven't worked out enough after a long day at the beach, you can look forward to relaxing drinks from the Beach me Bar or chilling out together on the beach in the evenings, for example at our coach matches. At the end of each week, we turn the night into day and let it rip at the legendary closing party.
Chill-out evenings, closing party
August is one of the summer months in Germany and therefore the best time to visit the Baltic Sea. Temperatures are around 21°C during this time and therefore offer optimal conditions for beach volleyball and other activities. Also the sea is already heated up from the summer and invites to refreshment after training.
From the youth hostel you can enjoy a great view of the Baltic Sea and the kilometer-long sandy beach is within walking distance. Accommodation is in 4-6 person rooms. The hostel is centrally located just 2 km south of Eckernförde's old town, surrounded by nature.
