Camp Adventure

The thing the stands out the most for me is the amount of fun that I had. With the kids, the teamers, the activities, the campfires, and everything in between! It's not an easy job, the days are long, we don't have a lot of free time and it's not for everyone but I will most definitely come back next year! You create such close bonds with your group of kids and I really felt like I was a big sister to my teenage girls, it's always sad to see them leave. It's the perfect opportunity to meet different people from all over the globe and to make true friendships.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
In my first group of kids, my very first week as a teamer, I had to run activities for the first time and guide the group, I was very nervous. Although once you are in it, the confidence kicks in, and as you experience running activities week after week, the nerves start to go away.

Summer adventure

Camp is so wonderful that you end up getting drawn back year after year! Coming back this year was like being welcomed back home by a wonderfully large family! Whilst overall organisation may not be the strongest at camp they make up for it in wonderful directors who support you with all your worries and queries throughout the summer, creating a incredibly strong and united teamer team who really are there for you whenever you may need it. If you're someone who enjoys the challenge of working outside and in nature with children and a wonderful team of young people and adults then camp is for sure the place for you!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Whilst I'm not afraid of standing in front of a class and teaching I sometimes struggle with organising larger groups and lack sometimes the confidence in myself to take the lead fully. Camp this year supported me to step out of my comfort zone and learn that I am more than capable of taking the lead not only when no one else can but also now voluntarily.

Best summer ever

I found Camp Adventure when I was bored at work and was looking for ways to travel in the summer. I got to Germany two months later and now I never want to leave. I have met so many cool people from around the world and made so many memories with the campers this summer. I have really enjoyed my time getting to go to four different camps throughout my placement and I even extended my stay for two more months. I wish I didn’t have to leave. I am already looking forward to camp next summer to make more friends and memories!

What was your funniest moment?
I participated in 7 “decorate your teamer” competitions throughout the summer and won all 7 of them thanks to the creativity and enthusiasm of all my different groups.

Quarantine with a plot twist

Since the training week to the last week, I enjoyed every minute, every day and every activity, of course we had some highs and some lows, but that didn’t stop us from being teammers and do great. rain, cold and Quarantine where only regular situations we were dealing with and at one point those things were just words that didn’t stop us from making someone else grow and learn. The way we impact some kids it’s just incredible, they just see us as role models, every detail, what we eat, how we laugh, when we are happy and when we’re ready for a great time.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Don’t be afraid of asking for help, be yourself and enjoy, no one is perfect, they’re all trying

Camp Europe - Outdoor Programs Specialist Internship

I had an amazing time and really look forward to returning next year. I met amazing people who shared so many interests with me and got to do so much more than I imagined. The camp atmosphere was amazing and everyone was extremely welcoming. If you enjoy being outdoors and working with kids, this is the perfect opportunity to experience both together. My placement location allowed me to see the beautiful landscapes of Bavaria while also being able to visit the local town in Southern Germany. Camp Europe was a great way to spend my summer abroad.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Be ready to be surrounded by people you've never met before. There's no avoiding the first few days where you're learning everyone's names and finding who you click with. Embrace those awkward moments and remember that your campers will have to do the same thing.

An Incredible Journey

"It was a crazy ride, did not expect to be so enriching and that it will leave such a lasting impact on me. the skillsets, learning such a diverse culture, being able to interact with the whole world in such a small space and such incredible opportunities to develop myself professionally. Camp Europe did it all for me and in such a fun-filled way that I am raring to go back again. I would totally recommend it if you want to spend six months in an environment that you would want to cherish for all of your life. just remember the environment will challenge all your notions about the people all over the world and wherever you are from you will have a degree of culture shock and will push you out of your comfort zone" Go ahead do this program and have an experience of a lifetime

Smell of the camp fire

Six long months in the camp. So different from "normal" life. Like living in the cushy bubble, on the green island, far away from the city rhythm.

For the first 3 months of internship You have Your little place on the Earth (Vethem Camp / Shire) and small group of people around You who become Your camp family very quickly. You eat, sleep, work and clean up together. You learn new things, have a lot of fun and dig into a hole together. And after this time You realize how hard it is to leave these people and place for summer season and go to the other camps.
But You go somewhere else and... You meet the other great people and You bond very quickly. And over and over again. That's the real magic of Camp Adventure.

It was long 6 months of living Diplo life. Hard working (sometimes 18 hours per day), sometimes being extremely tired, not having time for Yourself. Being far away from home and family. Facing different dilemmas.
But...It was worth it. For all these moments of happiness, laughing, having a lot of fun. For all the beautiful people, friendships, kindness and positive energy You get from them. For the most beautiful sky full of stars above the camp. For everyday campfires which smell stays with You for a long time (Your hoodie knows what I mean). For all the sincere conversations and moments of silence. For learning new skills, sharing experiences, discovering a lot about Yourself and the other people. And, above all, for unique atmosphere You won't find anywhere else.

Thank You Camp Adventure for these enriching experience!
All the best
