Welcome to ICN!
We have created and continue developing a solid relation with only the very best educational-recreational programs across Europe, Canada & Mexico; with a clear objective of promoting camp and the inherited benefits derived from it: development on personal and social skills, respect for one self, the community and the environment. We are a network of like minded people, putting an effort in promoting experiential learning internationally.
What really goes on, behind all the great experiential learning process?
The Experiential Learning Process that you´ll go through will enhance your self-reliance, cooperational skills, community building, communication fluency, organizational skills, problem solving & teamwork.
Participating with InterCampsNet is truly an investment in life, as it is an experience opportunity that rather you take it now, or probably you will never do.
And remember: people tend to regret more, NOT what they have done wrong, but rather the things they didn´t get to go for.
Develop and enhance effective communication capabilities by speaking to campers, staff, directors & parents alike, (many times, in a different language than your native one). By the end of your placement, you´ll be somewhat fluent, for sure.
At Camp, the only constant is change. Get challenged by facing many critical thinking situations. From health check-ups, to get kids to help tiddy-up the cabin, keep track of allergies, and a myriad of many other different aspects.
Manage a group of Campers and become part of their development process, creating a positive impact on each individual and the general atmosphere shared at camp. By acting as a Role Model, you basically learn while you teach.
Right from the beginning you will receive an intensive, hands-on training, where you will meet your team, and take part in a wide array of group dynamics and community-building workshops, to get started at full, starting from day noe, onwards.
You will be demanded to extract the best out of yourself in order to keep campers entertained. Whether providing instructions, guiding an activivy, making an announcement, playing a funky character, or improvising a rainy-day game.
Having Camp as a job experience at an early stage of your professional path can be extremely helpful.
On any resume, a Summer Camp job experience certainly stands out, as it is not the classic filing documents summer job,
but rather a real life, day to day, hand-on, interactive role which in your resume speaks about responsibility, work ethic, autonomy.
On that role, you´ll be introduced to a wide number of international and local campers in order to take care of their safety & their motivation by introducing them into an adventure at a beautiful natural environment.
Challenge yourself to explore your own limits in the context of a fun & safe summer while developing an appreciation for your impact on yourself, on your peers around you, and on the environment (premises & nature).
Last but not least, you will surely cultivate fantastic friendship relations with people like-minded -bonded by common mutual shared experiences- from all around the world, expanding your criteria and global awareness.
Challenging and inspiring summer
Angelica Girardelli - Italy
The whole deal has been a fulfilling and exciting experience. I worked as a teamer in an adventure camp for kids and teenagers in Germany. Being a teamer means taking care of a group of kids, explain and run the daily outdoor activities with them. Never was there a moment where I felt bored, everything was a challenge for the kids and for me as well. Thanks to a strong community I have always felt supported, also during stressful times, and never left alone. I made really good friends, because the people working for Camp have all something in common- that is, love for nature, for being active and a desire to step-out from the comfort-zone to find your true-self. In Camp you learn to think about life in a more easy and spontaneous way, that is why a lot of flexibility is required from the teamers: everyday is different and you need to be ready to face every kind of situation. Apart from running great outdoor activities like archery, canoe and kayak, raftbuilding , shelter-building, fire-making, high ropes, you get the chance to grow as a person and develop strong bonds with people from all over the globe. Overall I consider myself lucky to have had the chance to join the Campadventure community for the Summer 2021 and hope to be part of it again in the future.
