General Information

Along with all the activities included in the program, New Wave camp is a good opportunity to meet new friends, to refresh contacts with old ones and to splash around in the sea.

We have secured the territory of the camp, still we have some tips to participants, as every camp does:

  • Prepare for summer emotions without pimples, bites and sunburn by taking the cosmetic products for sun protection and insects, lurking everywhere.
  • Cooler evenings are possible, so take your warm clothes, apart from the T-shirts and shorts.
  • Although, the camp is not like home, maintain good personal hygiene. :)

  • Location and local conditions

    Traditionally, New Wave summer camp is based in Sarafovo, in the city of Burgas.
    The camp base is our host for 11th consecutive year and provides basic camping conditions – water, electricity and land for camping.
    The camp is located in the populated area, has good communications and provides all the advantages of our civilization.
    The neighbourhood has many restaurants, supermarkets, hotels and rooms, which are traditionally used by the camp participants

  • Alcoholic beverages, drugs and opiates

    Such substances are absolutely forbidden within the camp.
    Anyone who has consumed alcohol and/or is under the influence of drugs and other psychotropic substances will be escorted out of the camp by the guards.
    If necessary, the organizers will turn to the police for help.

  • Books, music and souvenirs

    New Wave camp provides the opportunity to all participants and guests to buy books, music, videos and souvenirs from the places that are on the territory of the camp.
    If you own a bookstore, produce souvenirs or other interesting things that you wish to offer to the participants during the camp, please contact us in advance at summer@novavalna.org, describe the items and how you will offer them – free or for sale.
    Shops are available to you, except during sessions when they are closed.

  • Cameras

    Amateur cameras are allowed at New Wave camp. Note that any professional photo and video equipment (including tripods, cameras with exchangeable optics etc.) are not permitted. However, if you own a professional technique and want to use it for personal or family purposes, please inform our representatives during registration.
    New Wave reserves the right to limit the use of professional equipment in order to preserve the personal rights of the participants of the camp.
    To all amateur photographers – be sure to ask the consent of the people you are shooting. If you shoot children that are not yours – ask for their parents' consent. Every person has the right to refuse to be photographed.

  • Camping

    A major element of the summer event is the tent camp. It is open to all under the conditions of accommodation in “Terms of registration”.
    Drinking water, tents lighting, toilets and bathrooms are provided to all the campers.
    Registration of the participants starts at 14:00 on Saturday, 18th of July.
    We encourage all who wish to spend their stay in a tent, to prepare for any kind of summer weather, especially rain.

  • Campfires

    To ensure the safety of all, campfires are strictly forbidden.

  • Children

    Parents or attendants with children must keep them under constant supervision and safe from potentially dangerous situations or objects. If you lose a child or find a lost one, please contact the organizers of the camp. If you notice a child who walks alone, please make sure it is not lost and search for the person responsible for it. Let us all be engaged for the sake of safety. Thank you

  • Bedtime hour

    The camp closes at midnight and has a bedtime hour, with a silent regime between 22:00 and 00:00. It is compulsory for all to keep quiet after 00:00. Please do not “bless” others with singing, music or talking. If someone is asking for silence, react sensitively.

  • Dresscode

    New Wave camp pays special attention to the dress code. The key word is “propriety”. While we are witnessing the wild fantasy of the world fashion, we insist the camp does not become a fashion catwalk. While the summer fashion style is shouting “The less, the better”, we urge everyone not to become a reason for the others to “trip over”. Leaders, group leaders, parents: We need your help with this policy.

    Thank you for your understanding.

  • Food

    This year there will be a fast food restaurant near the camp at the disposal of all participants. Moreover, Sarafovo has many restaurants and supermarkets that will meet the requirements of many.

  • Frisbee, balls and other sports.

    In order to eliminate dangerous situations, please, do sports in designated areas or where there are no crowds. In 90% of the cases the cause of an accident is a dangerous behaviour, not dangerous conditions.

  • Distribution of literature

    Literature distribution is permitted only in the designated booths. Unauthorised distribution of literature will be strictly penalized.

  • Waste

    Cleanliness is a personal responsibility of everyone. Please, help to keep clean by collecting every waste that you see and throw it in the nearest garbage container.

  • Lost and found

    All lost property should be transmitted or received from the New Wave office during the camp. Items, not claimed by the end of the camp, will be stored in Sofia City until a request of the owner is made. In this case, you can contact us at office@novavalna.org with your name, address, telephone number and a detailed description of the lost item..

  • Transportation & parking

    A significant part of the camp’s participants use public transport services. The camp is easily accessible by bus No.15 of Bourgas city transport. New Wave camp is located a few hundred meters from the last stop in the neighbourhood of Sarafovo.
    Parking spaces within the camp are limited. To prevent traffic jams and potential accidents, the organizers reserve their right to stop the access of cars

  • Photo & Video archives

    During the camp there will be authorized photographers and camera operators to shoot particular parts of the camp. New Wave reserves the right to use the footage to archive and promote the mission of the movement, ensuring preservation of personal dignity and other rights of the people who were taken pictures.

  • Suggestion box

    Your contribution with proposals and recommendations will be highly appreciated. Please drop your letter in the New Wave office suggestion box.

  • Volunteers

    It takes hundreds of dedicated volunteers to ensure the smooth conduct of the camp. We need ushers, security guards, registrars, office assistants, strong hands to build up and bring down the tent and the stage, people for cleaning and other assistants.
    If you wish to become part of our team and help us even with half an hour a day, please click the “volunteer” checkbox in the pre-registration form and in the box for additional comments indicate the amount of time you would like to devote.
    If you do not use pre-registration, but would like to help, we would be glad if you look for someone from the team on duty.

  • Do not forget

    It is important to bring your ID card (if you have one), a pen and a notebook, a swimsuit, some sunscreen cream (spray), an insect repellent, a pair of sunglasses, a BIBLE.
