7 years and counting...

In 2010, google led me to Camp Europe while searching for a new adventure for my summer holidays. I was a little apprehensive since I didnt speak any German, but it all worked out fine - besides - as I found out very quickly, you can communicate anything with a little help from your hands and feet!!

I enjoyed the few weeks I spent at camp so much, that I have more or less spent my whole summer living in a forest every year since! I have worked in Camps in Ireland, Germany and the UK, and I have now lost count of how many camp sessions I have done over the last 7 summers!!

Working at Camp Adventure has taught me a lot, not only about myself, but life skills as well:
Leadership;
Teamwork skills;
Communication and its importance;
How to get out of my comfort zone and push myself to try new things;
Problem solving with creative solution;
To be spontaneous, creative and sometimes a little crazy (because we all need a little bit of crazy in our lives);
and MOST IMPORTANTLY... how to dance like no one is watching and not care!

It is very difficult to try and summarise the experience you get - it is pretty unique.
You get to meet people from all across the planet.
You make new friends, who see you at your best and worst - and get it!!
You share your meals everyday with people from dozens of different countries.
You dance. You sing. You make up a new sport and teach it to 30 kids!
You spend your days surrounded by staff and kids with so much energy, you cant help but be full of energy too- even when you are exhausted.
You can do sports, arts & crafts, teach, run your own program, cook and have a huge waterfight all in one day.
You get to go hiking and sleep under the stars!!

The days are long, the work is hard at times, but the people make it the most unforgettable experience you could ask for!!

You work hard and play hard - but where else would you get to:
spend your morning on the beach,
your afternoon hanging out in the trees on a Highropes course,
your evenings exploring the forest and
end your day around the fire with friends?

I can't wait to see what the 2017 season has in store!!!

What a way to spend a summer

What I expected from the Internship was to spend lots of time outdoors and work with people and especially kids from many different cultures. Afterwards i can say that I got so much more than that. The work in camp is a good way to test out your strengths, get to know your personal weaknesses and work on them. I personally enjoyed the most leading the high ropes course or taking care of food and logistics. It makes you take over responsibility and improve the own time management.
Yes, a day in camp can be quiet long at times but you will recognize that even after the most exhausting day, a few minutes at the camp fire before sleep can keep the stress away and make you wake up with a smile and new energy every day!

Amazing and life-changing time

I spent a summer at Camp Adventure in 2015 and it truly changed my life and inspired me to commence my Masters in Education (Primary Teaching) when I got home to Australia. I made so many amazing friends from all over the world and have already visited friends from camp in Spain, Ireland, England and California. I made life long friends at camp. The camp itself was an extremely fun time, we have a lot of freedom with planning the activities (I was an English coach) and it taught me a lot about behaviour management and keeping kids engaged - which has helped me with my teaching courses back home. I hope to spend another summer at camp in the next few years :)

My experience in Camp Europe

The program itself is great, but the administration and senior staff could be unorganized and that made some important situations stressful. I would 100% do this program again! Just be prepared to move sites on short notice and be open to supreme schedule flexibility. Everyone I encountered was extraordinarily friendly and I made lifelong friends through the program. If you're an adventurous human being by nature, this program is for you.

How to experience an awesome summer in Europe

Camp Europe is definitely something you should have done in your life! I can't think of doing something else during my summer holidays anymore. I don't want to miss a single camp summer anymore! You get to know people from all over the world, you work with them day and night and you don't get mad of camp because it's such an amazing atmosphere. It's awesome to see kids and teamers from so many different nations working, playing and learning together from each other in the middle of nowhere in a forest in Bavaria. It never gets boring, there are always frogs to catch or fires to light. You can teach kids so many things but you can also learn from them.
It's just an amazing combination of working with kids and getting to know the other teamers at during work but also at night at the campfire.
Camp even inspired me to study for being a teacher in a few years because I enjoyed the work with the kids so much.
But to get to know camp, you have to try it yourself!
