Recently my team got an invitation to an ICPC training camp in spring: http://in.harbour.space/icpc/. However the participation fee would be 1270€ per person which is really high compared to standard Russian training camps. I'm asking if someone knows what other ICPC training camps are going to be held in spring and what are the dates for them? The Petrozavodsk winter camp is usually held in January/February but that would overlap with the Barcelona camp.

That's really high. With 8 nights, 160€ per night, TripAdvisor suggests hotel prices in the middle bracket at around 60€ (a room for two at around 120€), let's say 30€ per day for food, let's say 20€ a day for excursions or rent for the places where the training part takes place, 20€ for paying the lecturers/coaches and organisational staff (that's not low at all if far more people pay than get paid) per day, and we're at 130€ per day — with very generous spending. I assume flight tickets aren't included in the price, since that's something which varies greatly depending on the person in question.

It sure is a lot, maybe you could just crash the camp? :D
