However, there are only a few of them – so please inform us quickly if you need one. It is not possible to add extra beds.

The offer includes 3 meals a day, served buffet-style. The meals are very healthy and diverse – prepared to meet the needs of athletes and people on special diets (vegan, vegetarian, etc.).

Training will take place in groups of 8 people. The training includes technical skills, game elements, and improvement of motor skills/general fitness.

There is an option to purchase additional individual training, for a pair or group. The trainings planned during the camp will be intensive, so we suggest planning any additional sessions for Sunday afternoon.

Who is the camp for?

Are you worried that your skill level isn't the right fit? Concerned about your age? Or perhaps that you're on your own?

The camp in Zakopane is designed for players at a beginner level. According to our classification, these will be people at the Rec, Rec+, and B levels. You can check the level descriptions here: https://kontrabeach.com/beach-volleyball-skill-levels/

Our camps attract a individuals, teams, and groups of friends. If you’re on your own and hesitant to join the camp, don’t worry—we’ll match you with a roommate and a training group that suits your level (which you’ll specify when signing up for the camp). You also have the option of choosing a single room. The beach volleyball community is a cool, friendly, and open group of people, so if you come alone, you’re guaranteed to leave with many new friends and a squad for future camps!

We train people at all skill levels, and those who once came to their first camp without any skills now train in intermediate and advanced groups. Everyone has to start somewhere! This camp is for people who like beach volleyball, enjoy activity and playing outdoors, and want to learn the basics of this beautiful discipline.

Our camps are designed for both adults and minors who will train under the supervision of adults. So far, we’ve had the pleasure of coaching individuals aged from 13 to 60 years old. We’re always happy to broaden this range, so if you’re worried that you might not fit in age-wise with the rest of the group, don’t be!
