We Thought You'd Never Ask

© 2020 Zomeracademie 



From Monday 20 july (10 a.m.) to Sunday 26 july (2 p.m.).


You can do this via the registration form.

You will receive a confirmation e-mail and an invitation to pay. If you have not paid within three weeks, your registration will automatically be cancelled.

When you register, we ask for a short motivation for your choice of workshop. We want to check if your expectations of the workshop correspond with what we have to offer. Your motivation will be read carefully. Within two weeks you will receive a final confirmation of your participation. After payment, your registration is final. You will also be informed about this.



Participants with youth work certificate: 370 €

Participants younger than 35: 420 €

All others: 500 €




If you cancel your participation before 20 June 2020, we will refund your registration fee, after deduction of an administration fee of 20 euros. Please note: this cancellation must be supported by a valid proof or proof of force majeure. Cancellations after 20 June will not be refunded.


If a workshop cannot take place due to a lack of participants or if the coach is unavailable (illness, force majeure), in these cases the registration fee will be refunded in full.


You participate in the Summer Academy as a private individual. There is no extra insurance policy from the Summer Academy.


During the Summer Academy, each atelier has its own working room.

The participants discuss the concrete working hours and daily schedule with their coach.

Work is usually done in blocks of two hours, between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m.


Wireless internet is available in all workrooms.

All ateliers have the necessary working equipment.

You may also bring your own equipment, but make sure that these are insured against damage or theft.

A few weeks before the Summer Academy, your coach will contact you for any additional matters.


The price of the Summer Academy includes overnight stays. You share a six-person room (3 bunk beds) with two other participants. With whom, you can decide during the first day of the Summer Academy.

The rooms are equipped with a shower, two sinks and one wardrobe per person. The toilets are in the hallway. Destelheide provides sheets, duvets and pillowcases, but bring your own towels and toiletries.

As there are only a few individual rooms available, a single room is only possible with a medical certificate.



Special diets or food allergies must be mentioned on the registration form (under 'extra remarks'). Please also provide us with a medical certificate describing these. This way the cook can take this into account as much as possible.

Due to the strict HACCP regulations, it is not allowed to consume your own food in the self-service restaurant.


The bar opens at 9.30pm. It is operated by one of our employees.

There is a light and sound system. Feel free to bring your own music and share your DJ qualities with the other participants.


Destelheide is a centre for youth, art and creation in Flanders.

Destelheide is a modern, daring, sustainable and cosy building complex of glass, concrete and wood on a vast and natural estate in the green outskirts of Brussels.


By public transport: Take the train to Halle and then continue by bus 153 or bus 155 towards Drogenbos. Get off at the Destelheide stop. 


By car: E19 Bergen-Charleroi exit 20 Alsemberg - direction Huizingen/Alsemberg


Carpool: before the start of the Summer Academy, you will receive a carpool list with the email addresses of the participants, so that you can possibly agree to travel together for a cost-sharing trip.

Attention: if you do not want your details to be forwarded, please state this explicitly on your registration form (under 'extra remarks').
