Accommodation, transport & meals
Despite the name of the weekend, no camping on the terrain is allowed. Below we’ve listed some accommodation options in the area.
There is a nice camping site, with bungalows and camping fields 2 kilometers away from the Ceuvel.

All of the venues for the Camp are located within walking distance of each other, at the Korte Papverweg in Amsterdam. Use 9292.nl to tell you how to get there.
As you probably know, Dutch people use a bike to find their way around the city. This way you do not have to rely on public transport in the middle of the night after a party. You can rent bicycles throughout the city, and prices usually start at about €10 a day. However, the public transport company also rents out bikes (“OV-fietsen”), for only €3,85 a day. Unfortunately you need to public transport card (“OV-kaart”) for this. You may not have one if you live abroad, but every Dutch person has one! So ask a Dutch person you know (or find someone via our facebookgroup) whether they can rent a bike for you. Each OV-kaart allows one to rent two bikes at the same time. Click here for the pick-up locations or for more information.
Once you have a bike and want to get to the the North of Amsterdam, then take a ferry! They run all night from Amsterdam Centraal station to Buiksloterweg (and back), it only takes a couple of minutes, and you can take your bike with you. From stop Buiksloterweg, it’s only a 7 minutes ride to the Camp.
This year the camp will take place at a new venue, Ethiopian Restaurant Semai! And of course, we will taste their delicious Ethiopian food. More info about the menu will be anounced later, but this is what a dinner pass includes:
Snacks in the afternoon between classes, as your tummy may not survive that much dancing between lunch and dinner.
Lunch made by our trusted cook Nicky. Soop, salads, sandiwiches, and of course: all the houmous your dancing tummy wants.
Dinner will be provided by Semai, and will be something Ethiopian every night.
Dessert – also Ethiopian! Yum!
But there is more: there is free water available all weekend, and we will sell midnight snacks during the parties to keep you dancing.
Yes, everything! You may wonder how an active lindy hopper will get enough protein and energy from merely eating vegetarian food, but we’ve taken some time to figure this out. During the weekend we will not only let you taste and experience how delicious and healthy a vegetarian lifestyle can be, but we will also provide the oh so needed information and recipes to continue reducing your meat consumption at home. This way we hope to improve both the environment and animal welfare, as well as the health of lindy hoppers,
Allergies and diets
If you have any allergies or dietary wishes – especially regarding nuts or soy – make sure to let us know when you register. During the whole weekend, vegan options will be available (but please let me know beforehand if you want to make use of this). If you have any questions regarding the food during the weekend, you are always welcome for a chat with me in the kitchen. The kitchen is located upstairs at Semai, and the person to go to is Nicky.

Of course we cannot cook all this food on my own. If you would like to help us out during the weekend, please let us know via the registration form or by sending an e-mail to email@example.com. Your help with cutting vegetables, setting up the buffet, and dancing and loudly singing in the kitchen will be very much appreciated!
