FAQs

1. How can I register for “International Polecamp”?


The easiest and cheapest option is online registration via the registration menu item. Please also read our booking guide to ensure that your registration is completed correctly. Of course you can also register via fax or email to info@polecamp.at. For registration via fax or email we will charge a handling fee of EUR 20,00. After your registration you will automatically receive your ticket(s) by e-mail. The invoice will be sent to you a few days after registration in PDF format attached to an email. The amount due has to be paid within 7 days of the date of invoice.




2. What is all the data needed for during registration?


To guarantee a smooth and fast check-in at the location we need to know the date of birth, place of birth as well as passport number and place of issue aside from a participant’s name and complete address. This guarantees that you get your room and entry pass (control bracelet) without waiting time.




13. What levels are the workshops divided into?


There will be workshops for beginner, intermediate, advanced and workshops marked "for all". Beside on-pole we offer of course also off-pole workshops. So there will be something for everyone at the Polecamp in Bibione. Find the qualifications you should bring for each level right here. It is not helpful to ask for the level of the participants at the time of their registration, because experience has shown that the level of Intermediate or Advanced is not the same in every studio. In addition, the trainers also rate their own workshops differently. Therefore it is impossible for the organizer to make a classification in advance. For this reason we offer all participants to attend each workshop (per group). If one is too easy/difficult, it is also possible to change at any time (subject to availability).




15. Do I have to book the individual workshops in advance?


To provide participants also a certain flexibility, all workshops can be visited without an appointment or booking. If there will be too many participants in a workshop, we close that workshop and it applies the principle of "first come - first serve"! If one of your "desired workshops" is already full, you have the option to visit one of the other workshops (within your group) - offered at the same time - in any case.




14. What for is the classification in "group A" and "group B"?


Per camp, participants are divided into 2 groups, although this is not a classification, but simply ensures that there are roughly the same number of participants per group. Almost all workshops are offered twice - and thus in each of the two groups - to ensure that there will be not more than 2 participants per pole/hoop. For this reason, please note during the registration process, if you would like to be "group A" or "group B". If no group is announced at the time of registration, the group will be assigned by the organizer. Changes to the desired or assigned group are no longer possible after booking.




19. What equipment is used at Int. Polecamp?


We offer our participants only professional equipment! There are more than 50 poles - X-Pole XPERT (in Chrome, 45 mm) or X-Pole XPERT PRO (Chrome, 45 mm) - in use, which are suitable for static as well as for spinning. For the hoop workshops, 8 single-point hoops are available. For the acrobatics workshops, 4 CCLIFE gymnastics mats are available, each 300x120 cm and 5 cm thick. Also for chair- and lapdance about 20 (folding) chairs made of hard plastic were purchased at that time. We are aware that there would be even more ideal chairs for these workshops. However, we ask for your understanding that the entire equipment must also be stored for about 350 days a year in the most space-saving way possible - therefore the folding chairs! Due to the conditions we can not offer mirrors in the workshop locations!




17. Do you also offer workshops in aerial-hoop?


Yes! 8 hoops (single point with a thickness of 24 mm) are at your disposal in a separate location for this purpose. All hoops have a diameter of 100 cm and are NOT taped for hygienic reasons. Straps as well as a swivels and sufficient carabiners are available as accessories for all hoops.




11. Are male participants also welcome at Int. Polecamp?


Short and crisp - YES! We are also happy about male pole dancers! However, due to the small number of male participants, a booking as a solo participant (room sharing) is not possible for them. If a man wants to participate in the Polecamp and has NO room partner, a single room has to be booked!




12. How to get to the Polecamp?


Travel to the Polecamp is self-directed for all participants and not included. Here are some tips for you: If you come by plane, Venice (airports: Marco Polo or Treviso) is the closest airport. Cheap flights from many European cities are available at www.easyjet.com, www.eurowings.com, www.ryanair.com and others. Alternatively you can take the bus to Venice (e.g. www.flixbus.de). If you arrive by train, Latisana is the nearest train station to Bibione (about 20 km).

From Venice airport (Marco Polo) there is public transport to Bibione (even if the connections are not the best). Here are some helpful links: ATVO, Bibione Express Service, Rome2Rio. A transfer can also be booked in advance - e.g. with FoxTransfer.

Another cheap alternative from the airport to the hotel is a rental car. We recommend to book a car in advance - for example on Mietwagencheck or Check24. If you come directly to Bibione by car, you can park your rental car or your private car free of charge in the hotel underground car park.
If you are traveling to Bibione by car and would like to carpool, apply for a group membership for our " Participants Facebook Group". In this group participants can exchange information and find fellow travelers. Why do we not organize shuttles from Venice? The answer is quiete simple. Our participants arrive from different regions of Europe with different means of transportation and at different times. A shuttle service provided by the Int. Polecamp would be so cost-intensive that, for example, the booking of a rental car is much cheaper!




5. What is included in the package?


“International Polecamp” is an event where (nearly) everything is included. From accommodation with full board to workshops and shownight also anti-alcoholic drinks from the suspensing system in the dining room at lunch and dinner! All other drinks (ie water during the day) are not included! Board starts with dinner on the day of arrival. If you would like to have lunch at the hotel on this day, please inform the hotel reception in advance and pay directly at the hotel! You will find further details on what is included in the registration section.




6. Can I extend my stay in Bibione?


An extension at the Bibione Palace Spa Hotel is possible both before and after the event. If you want to book one or more extra nights, choose the number of extra nights directly in your online booking. By booking additional nights through us, you will pay a lower rate than the hotel would charge. You will not find the costs for any booked extra nights in the shopping cart, but only on the invoice, which you will receive by e-mail a few days after registration.




9. Can I also take a companion who does not want to do workshops?


Of course! You only need to select the corresponding ticket "NON-POLER" for this accompanying person as a package within the booking. Your partner will get a reduced price which includes the accomadation, food and shownight. No workshops may be visited! No visitors allowed during the workshops! Of course you can! If someone wants to accompany you but does not want to participate in the workshops, you only need to select the corresponding ticket "NON-POLER" as a package/package for this accompanying person within your registration process. The accompanying person will then receive a reduced price (see prices), which includes accommodation, full board and the show night. However, no workshops may be attended! Visitors at the workshops are not allowed!




10. Is it possible to register as solo participant and share the room with anybody?


If you do not want to book a single room and save the single supplement, you can also register as a solo-participant. In this case, we will assign you a room and you will share a double, triple or 4-bed room with 1 to 3 others. If you register as a solo participant, you will always be charged the price for half a double room. Please select "SHARED ROOM" directly at the bottom of the booking form. Due to the low number of male participants, booking as a solo participant (room sharing) is ONLY possible for female participants!




25. What is the weather like in Bibione in September/October?


Bibione offers even in September, a pleasant climate with daytime highs of up to 24 ° and a water temperature of about 22 °.




3. When should I register?


"The earlier - the better!" On the one hand you will benefit from our reduced prices for early birds and on the other hand you will secure your place at the "International Polecamp" by registering early, especially since there is a limit of participants.




7. How and when to pay the Polecamp?


For each booking, the first participant/registrant is also the invoice recipient and will receive an invoice by e-mail within a few days after booking. The total amount of the invoice is then to be transferred within 7 days without deduction to the account stated on the invoice. Partial payments and payments by credit card or paypal are not possible!




22. What additional costs should I budget for the Polecamp?


In our "all inclusive price" all workshops, shows, hotel room, full board and even drinks (soft drinks) during lunch and dinner are already included. So you just need to calculate personal expenses, like maybe the one or another drink and maybe a "shopping trip" in Bibione.




21. Can I bring my own drinks to the workshops and shownight?


In consultation with the hotel, it is possible to bring your own drinks (water) to the workshops during the day!
Because it is not an apartment complex but a first-class hotel you are not allowed to take your own drinks in the evening and to the shows, no exceptions! We ask you to comply with this request from the hotel management!




24. Why is the organizer taking pictures and/or filming?


This has a very simple reason. We just want to show all those who have not yet been to Int. Polecamp in Bibione, what awaits them there. The goal is not to make pictures or a film of perfekt pole tricks, but simply to the show the general mood, the locations and so on. We request for your understanding that therefore it´s nessecary that our photographer and/or cameraman will drop by the workshops from time to time to document the event.




16. When will the workshop schedule be online?


The workshop schedule is available about 4 weeks before the start of the Polecamp.




18. What is the nature of the workshop premises?


The Polecamp takes place in a hotel and for this reason the workshop rooms are not comparable with a classic pole dance studio. In the venues there are partly columns, tile or stone floors, but also PVC and all premises are adapted and "misappropriated" for our event with great effort. The room height of the individual pole/hoop locations also varies and is between 2.5 and 3 meters.

We also realize that mirrors (especially for the choreo classes) would be nice and useful in the venues, but by we would also have to rent them additionally and have them transported to the hotel. Of course, this causes further additional costs, which would then be reflected in the price again. Therefore, we deliberately do without mirrors and keep our all-inclusive price unbeatably low!

We recommend our participants to be prepared for this and to see the weekend in Bibione as what it is: "A vacation weekend among like-minded people in a Holidaycheck Award-winning **** hotel and the opportunity to attend numerous on- and off-pole workshops there!"




20. What do I need to bring myself to the PoleCamp?


In addition to good humor, good physical condition and lots of fun you just have to bring your own exercise mat and Grip aids (NO itac please) as well as 2 yoga-blocks (if possible) for stretching and acrobatics on your own to Bibione. As we made the experience that our participants prefer to use their own equipment, these will not be provided at the Polecamp!




23. What happens in the event that I have to cancel?


Depending on when you cancel your booking, appropriate cancellation fees will apply. You will find them under the Terms and Conditions. To avoid costs in case of cancellation due to health reasons, we strongly recommend (at the same time as your booking!) to take out a travel cancellation insurance. For more information ask your insurance advisor, travel agency or check out online at various insurance companies!




4. What do you mean with "XXL-Camp"?


Our XXL-Polecamp is a combination of "Camp 1" and "Camp 2" and includes 2 additional nights (with full board) in between those two dates. So in total you stay 8 nights in Bibione and join 2 Polecamps within that week for a special price! Some workshops are offered at both camps (1 and 2), but the majority of the workshops are different at camp 1 and camp 2 and therefore our XXL camp is just right for everyone who wants to take the maximum of new tricks and moves.




26. What needs to be considered with regard to Corona / COVID-19?


As the situation is constantly changing internationally, you will find current information about COVID-19 and possible effects on our event on the page especially created for this purpose. With our " money-back-guarantee" in combination with a travel cancellation insurance (optional) you actually take NO risk with your booking! Also the fact that we have already operated our last event in autumn 2021 with a comprehensive hygiene and prevention concept successfully and without a single Corona case, has proven that dance and sports events (under appropriate conditions and measures) are a "Corona-safe" leisure activity. In order to guarantee hygiene and protection for each individual, we provide cleaning and disinfecting products in all locations. Poles and hoops are always to be cleaned/disinfected by each participant herself BEFORE use in EACH workshop! There is no testing possibility in the hotel itself. There is only one testing station in Bibione in the health center of BIBIONE THERMAE. Currently, the antigen test costs EUR 40,- and the PCR test EUR 80,-.




8. When will I receive my ticket and what does the status mean?


Your ticket is generated automatically when you register online and you will receive it as a PDF by e-mail immediately after your registration. Since the ticket status "unpaid" is continuously compared with the incoming payments and updated in our system, your ticket (after payment) is also valid with this status and you will not receive another ticket with the status "paid". You have to bring your ticket printed or digitally (on your mobile) to the event! The most important thing for your event check in is the QR code on the ticket!
