MONEY

How much money will I need at the camp?

As Femø is a small island with two small villages, there is a post office and a small store, a doctor and a dentist, but there is no means of exchanging money, no bank, no cashpoint or ATM. Please bring the money for the camp fee and drinks and whatever else you need from the mainland with you when you arrive. If you consider getting it in Denmark before coming to Femø, please remember that Danish ATMs are turned off at night.

Camp fees

Travel costs

There may be extra costs arising from your trip to Femø. If you take the bus from the Copenhagen Women’s House, you will need to pay 14 Euro each way. If you come by car or motorcycle you will need to pay for the ferry sailing to Femø (please see Registration and Payment. For pedestrians the ferry is free of charge if you stay the whole week (from Saturday to Saturday). If you stay less than a week the ferry costs 6 Euro. If you take public transport from Rødby (or any other place in DK) you will need some cash for the bus trip to Kragenæs, which is the harbour for the ferry to Femø.

Soft drinks and alcoholic drinks

The camp fee includes food, tea and coffee. Soft drinks like mineral water, chocolate milk and soda pops are not included. Alcoholic drinks are not included either. These drinks are available at the camp bar. A 0.5 l bottle of water or a small bottle of beer is about 8 Danish Kroner (1 Euro). Soft drinks and wine are a bit more expensive. We only accept Danish currency. (NB: The tap water at the camp is chalky but good quality.)

Hot shower

You can have a free cold or warm solarthermic shower (from the black hose behind the kitchen tent) as often as you want. A hot shower in the toilet/shower wagon costs 10 Danish Kroner per shower.

Other things

Besides the above mentioned you may want to have some money to buy postcards and stamps, an ice cream, tasty Danish fries or a hot dog at the little shop/Alice’s Restaurant at the harbour. There are also roadside sales of fruit and jam in some places, the occasional garage/jumble sale and a gallery.
