My experiential education in Germany

What an opportunity to find yourself amidst diverse culture and learning environment.
Personally, I had a unique opportunity of traveling to Germany to explore and learn cultural diversity and skills in an experiential education format. My sincere thanks to the management for going that extra mile to get me on board for this six months diploma program.
This outdoor and experiential education diploma gave me a chance to meet and make friends from different nationalities across the globe. It helped me to learn and implement various outdoor technical and facilitation skills in a fun filled and positive learning outdoor environment.
The number of campers and Outdoor instructors who keep going back to the camp is a testimony to the camps credibility to make it a highly fun filled working environment. I wish I could go back and re-live those moments again.

The ratings are difficult to give due to it being extremely special. Days are hard but rewarding and of course you mainly sleep in tents because it is a camp. But these really don't matter because the whole atmosphere is so great. You can even see the founder of the organization often around the camp, that's how close knit everything is! I made some great friends and learned so much about kids and how to work with them.

Best Camp Ever!

I spent last summer laughing, hiking, meeting people from all around the world and spending time with the amazing campers. I was nervous at first because it was my first time visiting Europe but the coordinators are great at communicating with you before camp.What I find impressive is the number of camps located everywhere in Europe. It's a great opportunity to travel to different parts of Germany and different countries around Europe all while being supported by the staff. The camp is also very accommodating when it comes to food options. The chef is talented and hilarious and makes vegan dishes every day. I completely fell in love with camp which is why I'll be coming back this summer :)

A great 6 months in the Forest

A truly great experience, well worth the time. First learning and developing a vast range of valuable outdoor and indoor skills, practical or otherwise, and then putting them into action in a variety of places with a variety of people, learning, teaching and enjoying life/
Through this Diploma, I got to see, experience and work in a multitude of places, mainly in, but also outside of Germany. But above all it is the lifelong friendships you develop that make this Outdoor Education Diploma and Camp Adventure so worthwhile and such a great way to see the world.

Working as a "diploma" for camp adventure is one of the best experiences I have ever had. Before doing this program I had worked for Camp Adventure as a summer teamer before and loved it. But being a summer teamer doesn't even compare to how amazing being a diploma is. Because the group of people you work with during the Diploma is relatively small, you get to make real life long friendships with people from all over the world. Due to the fact that the group was quite small I felt safe and comfortable to be myself because I new the people around me would support me and help me if I failed. There is no denying that the days are long and tiring but this is when you learn most about yourself and how you actually handle things when push comes to shove.
I have recently returned home to New Zealand and am in training for a new office based job and it wasn't until I looked around the room at everyone being to scared to answer a question or present something to the group that I realised how much I changed and how much confidence I gained by being at camp.
I will forever be grateful to everyone at Camp Adventure for giving me the opportunity to be part of their team. If it was viable, I would come back every year.
