Food & More

Most hotels offer half board: either lunch or dinner buffets that you eat in the hotels together with the other hotel guests. Very often you can choose between lunch and dinner. The buffets at the Hotel Ermitage are particularly good.

Guests in San Marco and Mamma Margherita will be offered a simple but satisfying dinner meal in the romantic monastery courtyard (drinks cost extra). If you make a reservation in advance, you can also have an inexpensive lunch.

If you stay in hotels other than the San Marco or Mamma Margherita, you will not be able to eat in your hotel on some of the days, but we nevertheless recommend booking your hotel room with half board since in the end it is cheaper than eating out every meal. External guests may also eat at the San Marco / Mamma Margherita, but you have to make a reservation in advance.


  • Normal dinner: €18
  • Congress party dinner: €30
  • Drinks cost extra

Prices apply to SummerCamp 2017 and could be subject to changes.

Twice a day your will be served some refreshments during the coffee breaks which are integrated into the seminar time. You will be offered coffee, water, juices, and small snacks like fruit salad, sweet and salty pastries. The costs for this is included in your seminar fee.

Twice a week Metaforum will hold its very popular parties in the courtyard of the San Marco or in the garden of the hotel Mamma Margherita. They feature a buffet, music, a cultural program, and dance.

We cordially invite you to participate.

All participants not staying at the San Marco or the Mamma Margherita are required to pay €18 per party (for dinner). The Congress party costs €30. (Prices apply to SummerCamp 2017 and could be subject to changes.)

For organizational reasons, it is important that you make a reservation in advance.

Children are welcome to the SummerCamp. While parents work on their development in the seminars, day care will offer a playful framework for promoting their children´s development.

We offer child care for children betwenn 3 and 12 years under the condition that enough families are interested in this offer. To cover our costs, this service is subject to a fee.

If you want to use this service, it is essential that you inform us in advance. Please indicate your need for day care when you register. We need to know the number and age(s) of your child(ren) and the exact seminar days on which you will need day care.

Price per day and child: €20 (Price applies to SummerCamp 2017 and coud be subject to changes.)

Day care hours on seminar days:
9.00 a.m. – 12.30 p.m.

Between 12:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. there is a lunch break with parents. Babysitting after 6:45 p.m. is also possible, but is subject to an extra charge.
