The contract is not concluded until the written confirmation/invoice from PLP, which is sent by e-mail.

  1. Right of withdrawal

The customer has the right to withdraw from the contract free of charge within 14 days after conclusion of the contract without giving reasons.

Declarations of withdrawal must be sent by e-mail to: The date of receipt of the declaration of withdrawal by PLP is decisive.

This does not apply to contracts concluded 10 weeks or less before the start of the camp. In this case a withdrawal is no longer possible.

Travel prices are final prices and include the legal amount of Value Added Tax, as far as it is applicable to the respective service or product.

The individual services of the booked camp program are described on our website:

If a particular individual service is not feasible (e.g. due to bad weather), we reserve the right to offer a substitute programme. Such a change of program does not entitle a cancellation.

Should a participant not take advantage of certain services due to early departure or other reasons, there is no right to a refund.

  1. Payment modalities

After registration a deposit of 40% of the travel price is due, payable within 14 days after receipt of our confirmation of registration and after handing out the security certificate according to §651r Abs. 4 BGB.

The balance is due 10 weeks before the camp begins.

For bookings received by us later than 10 weeks before the camp begins, the full amount is due upon booking.

If we do not receive the full amount of the travel price by the start of the camp, we are entitled to refuse the child’s participation. In this case our claim for payment continues to exist.

  1. Right of withdrawal of the customer

A withdrawal from the contract is possible at any time. The withdrawal must be made in text form to:

In the event of withdrawal, we shall be entitled to appropriate compensation for expenses. As compensation, we charge the following replacement flat rates:

– 10 to 8 weeks before camp start: 50% of the travel price

– 8 to 6 weeks before camp start: 75% of the travel price

– 6 to 4 weeks before camp start: 90% of the travel price

– less than 4 weeks before camp start: 100% of the travel price

If the customer does not start the journey and has not previously made a declaration of withdrawal or cancellation, compensation amounting to 100% of the travel price will also be charged.

Important note: We recommend taking out a corresponding insurance in case your child is not able to attend the camp.

  1. Illness and accidents

If your child falls ill or has an accident, we will take him/her to a doctor or hospital. We will inform you immediately.

In order to avoid the spread of a possible disease in the camp, participants with a possible contagious disease will not be allowed to continue their stay.

Should a participant need medical assistance or medication during the camp, all costs related to this (e.g. trips to the hospital or procurement of medication) are at the expense of the parent or guardian.

  1. Due diligence

The well-being of your child at camp is our highest priority. We are committed to providing careful care for your child by

– treating all children as individuals with respect, regardless of age, gender, race or religion

– Listening to your child and respecting his or her opinion

– protecting your child

– requiring clean police clearance certificates from all employees

– demanding character references from all employees and trainers

– ensuring that all employees and trainers have an up-to-date first aid certification

– carrying a first aid kit on all excursions

– Solving disciplinary problems fairly

  1. Interruption and termination of stay

No refunds will be given for participants who interrupt or break off their stay at the camp due to illness, homesickness or other reasons beyond our control.

Participants who violate camp rules or whose behaviour in the camp is disturbing over a longer period of time will have to leave the camp.

  1. Liability

We shall be liable in accordance with the statutory provisions if the customer asserts claims for damages based on intent or gross negligence, including intent or gross negligence on the part of our representatives or agents. As far as we are not accused of intentional breach of contract, the liability for damages is limited to the foreseeable, typically occurring damage. Our maximum liability shall be three times the travel price.

We are otherwise liable in accordance with the statutory provisions insofar as we culpably breach a material contractual obligation; in the case of slight negligence, however, liability for damages is limited to the foreseeable, typically occurring damage.

Insofar as the customer is entitled to compensation for damages instead of performance, our liability is also limited within the scope of paragraph (1) to compensation for foreseeable, typically occurring damages, but at most to three times the travel price.

Liability for culpable injury to life, body or health remains unaffected.

Unless otherwise regulated above, liability is excluded.

Any further liability for damages than provided for here is excluded – irrespective of the legal nature of the asserted claim; this applies in particular to claims for damages arising from culpa in contrahendo, other breaches of duty, including non-contractual breaches of duty, or tortious claims for compensation for material damage in accordance with § 823 BGB. This shall also apply insofar as we are able to obtain compensation in accordance with the insurance cover existing in our favour.

Insofar as our liability for damages is excluded or limited, this also applies to the personal liability for damages of our employees/representatives/agents and consequential damages, claims for reimbursement of expenses and financial losses of the customer must leave the camp.

Insofar as we act in an advisory capacity for the customer, the above exclusions and limitations of liability also apply here. Information and notes that deviate from our written product and service descriptions are to be checked for suitability by the customer on his own responsibility.

PLP does not assume any liability for health or other damages to participants or third parties, unless such damages are due to culpable breach of duty by PLP or the supervisory staff employed by PLP.

PLP is not liable for loss, theft or damage of objects which the participants bring to the camp.

Damages to the camp accommodations or to the property of PLP are to be borne by the legal guardian, if caused by a camp participant.

Important note: We recommend to take out a travel accident insurance. Please also check your private liability and travel accident insurance (family insurance) if necessary.

  1. Warranty

We undertake to provide the services of PERIOLI LANGUAGE CAMPS as described in the service descriptions. If we fail to provide our services, you may demand redress, provided that this does not require disproportionate effort.

It is our wish that your child has a wonderful holiday time and many positive learning experiences at our camp. If your child has a problem, it should immediately contact the PERIOLI LANGUAGE CAMPS care team. Our team will check this and, in the event of justified complaints, will provide remedy as soon as possible.

  1. Ineffectiveness of individual provisions

Should one of the above provisions be ineffective, this shall not result in the ineffectiveness of the entire contract.

  1. Applicable law and place of jurisdiction

Contractual and legal relationships between Heike & Paul Perioli GbR and the Customer are governed by German law.

The general place of jurisdiction is the headquarters of Perioli Language Pilots GbR in Bonn.
