The camp fees are unbundled—you pay only for services that you want. We are happy to assist you in booking accommodations, transfers,


and excursions

 for which you will pay vendors directly

🎁 Bonus!

The last night of camp we offer a typical Ikarian barbecue at the home of a local host. This is a special generosity of our good friend. You are welcome!

This time of year is delightful in Ikaria; the weather is pleasant, the tourists are minimal, and the sea is still warm. It is shoulder season, so the room rates are off-peak

You are invited to stay with Steve at Atsachas rooms & restaurant—as long as rooms are available. This is the most popular option, and rooms will go quickly. If you want to attend camp, and stay at Atsachas, you are urged to register early

There are beautiful beaches, wonderful trails, excellent food, all accessible. 

Many campers are repeat visitors, thus, the ambience is congenial. You are encouraged to arrive to ikaria early, and stay on after the camp—you will not regret any time spent on the island.

If you have questions, please email Maxwell service desk [email protected]

Steve looks forward to see you in Ikaria!
