Individual vs. Group camps


In group camps, students travel with other Romanian children in the group and with a group attendant from Romania (usually a teacher). At the destination, the Romanian group joins a large international group of children from around the world. On the destination airport they will be picked by the camp representatives to transfer them to the campus where they are accommodated.

In the camps the individual minor learner travels with an airline crew member, who will take him over at the airport in Bucharest from his parents, under signature, and will accompany and supervise then all the time (those who travel by this service are seated in a special part of the plane) to the destination airport, which will take luggage with your child then they will surrender them to camp representatives under signature. This service offered by certain airlines, called unaccompanied minor service and buy with airfare.
