GROUP & SKILLS
For our camp in Gambia you should already have an intermediate level of play. This means that you have already gained experience in the movements of volleyball/beach volleyball in regular training sessions and have mastered the serve, the basic techniques and the game structure in simple situations flawlessly or of course beyond.
At our beach volleyball camp in The Gambia, we have qualified coaches with us to take your game to the next level together. Beach volleyball is a team sport and we are one team on site.
- Medium level
You can't estimate your level? Then have a look here.
In Gambia you will spend the time with up to 12 participants in the camp. The group size is deliberately chosen smaller, because we can create a family atmosphere and give all active the maximum beach volleyball input. So there is also time before and after the training to get to know each other and exchange ideas in the whole group.
~ 12 participants per camp
To the online booking
In Gambia you can expect exotic and culinary delicacies of the country. For breakfast and dinner you can look forward to traditional Gambian food. At a long table under a mango tree, dishes such as coconut juice, teas, fresh fruit salads, bean bread, freshly caught fish and also often vegetarian items are served by the cook Isatou. Beer and wine can be purchased for an additional charge and vegans and allergy sufferers can be accommodated without issue. Should you miss something, there is the possibility to buy additional food in the large supermarkets.
Lunch can be purchased at one of the beach bars on the beach. There is also always the possibility to eat in the restaurant. This can be organized with drivers for a small fee.
- Breakfast - authentic Gambian food (but espresso is also available ;))
- Lunch (On the beach, not included in the price)
- Dinner - traditional Gambian fresh food
Due to the small group, we are especially interested in creating a family atmosphere. Besides beach volleyball, we also want to get to know the country and its people. With our host Pam we have the perfect hostess here on site, whowants to bring uscloser to her favorite places in Gambia at good conditions.On different excursions we want to experience the Gambian culture and discover what this great country has to offer. Day trips to Lamin Lodge, Serekunda & Bakau market, Banjul (the smallest capital in Africa) or a boat trip on the River Gambia are just a few possibilities. Please note that the excursions are not included in the price.
Getting to know the country and its people, excursions, final party
The Gambia has a warm tropical climate with distinct dry and rainy periods. There is a rainy season from June to October and a dry season from November to May. The best time to travel to The Gambia is during the winter months from November to May. Here the temperatures are pleasant with highs of up to 30 degrees and the humidity is also rather low. A highlight of the winter months is also that during this time various migratory birds winter in The Gambia, making it a beautiful destination for bird watching.
The resort consists of three guesthouses with a very special flair. The cottages are with real thatched roof and regionally typical, made of Gambian materials and building materials, which gives them a very special charm, which is rounded off by many loving details.
Each cottage consists of 2 rooms (each with a large double bed 180 x 200 with separate mattresses incl. mosquito net), which are simple and plain, yet colorful and stylishly decorated, and a neat bathroom (shower, 2 sinks, European toilet), which is shared in use by 4 people. All rooms have an exit to their own small garden through a double glass door, providing a wonderful little retreat. Goodwifi is available on site!
You are traveling alone? No problem, we will try to book you a room together with another participant.
