Camp Europe 2018

I applied for Camp Europe because I thought it would be a good chance to travel and meet new people. I also really enjoy working with kids and being active, so it was only natural for me to love working at an adventure camp. A tip I would have to others is to approach everything at camp with an open mind. I found it most beneficial to just put myself out there and by doing so I got to meet lots of new and exciting people that I never would have got to know if I didn't get involved at camp. I would encourage anyone who likes to have fun to apply for Camp Europe. I had the most enjoyable summer of my life and I hope that others can also have this opportunity.

Awesome summer and definitely worth it 💚💚💚

I had a chance to improve my German. For example, leading a project, dealing with homesick kids and being a daily manager speaking english and broken german. They were so appreciating my effort of speaking their language which made me feel proud of myself. So I want to thank CA for this wonderful opportunity. And I also learnt that CA is an international camp, so you have a chance to improve the knowlegdes of other people's countries culture more and more, and to built the friendship from all around the world. In my case, I could visit my friends from Germany in Australia. Also I had one american friend and one irish friend who visited me in Montreal, my hometown.

Amazing experience

Got to experience an international camp that was flexible yet structured. I learned a lot and formed a lot of new relationships. It was great being able to participate and instruct various outdoor activities and sports. I would recommend this to anyone that is interested in spending time abroad. It is very easy to organize travelling based around camp placements as well. Definitely makes for an unforgettable summer.

4 breathtaking weeks in Camp Adventure

It has been one of the best experiences of my live, but also one of the hardest.
The chance of knowing people from ALL OVER THE WORLD and making not only good friends but also a family is the key point of my adventure in the camp.
You improve your English everyday, and your German if you want as well.
Besides you can adquire many skills of communication and working in team that will be useful for the rest of your life.
Definitely I would highly recommend to enjoy the experience.

What would you improve about this program?
There should be less activities organized everyday, allowing kids to have free time and teamers to relax because it is exhausting for both sides.

Camp Adventure

My summer with Camp Europe was, without a doubt, one of the best i've ever had. I was fortunate enough to be able to experience working at several of the camps that Camp Adventure counselors are placed at, and I could not have enjoyed any of my experiences more. As a counselor, you will have the opportunity not only to work with amazing children, but also to work along side a group of amazing adventure minded individuals from around the world. I could not be more appreciative for this opportunity to broaden my horizons through traveling and meeting new people, and I 100% plan to come back again!

Summer 2018

To be honest this has been probably the best summer of my entire life, i was able to meet so many amazing people, and do so many amazing things its almost sad that the summer is almost over. Being able to lead hikes and see people struggling the entire time just to see the amazement on their faces when they were finished would always put a smile on my face. The kids at this camp had a blast and I think the teamer's had an even better time. With so many moving parts going on in this camp and others like the transfers, hikes, injures, new campers, it was always good to see everything working out in the end. I am for sure thinking about coming back next year for the summer of 2019. I just hope that i will be able to find time in my life for it.

What would you improve about this program?
A little more communication between the senior camp and junior camp. There was times when both camps were in the same area and it become a bit hectic.

What an experience!

Such a great atmosphere where people are encouraged to be active, creative and sociable. A chance to practice my German skills, make a difference to others and make friends all over the world. You will be challenged in the best way possible and come out with some incredible memories. Favourite memories would have to include helping a shy boy become the life of the disco-party with everyone cheering while he danced the night away. Softly playing my group to sleep and having them request that I play them to sleep with the guitar every night. And the girls asking to play Australian Footy every chance they got! Tips: Be prepared for little sleep at times and be prepared to put the needs of the children first! There are people to help give you a break if needed but it can get exhausting sometimes.

What would you improve about this program?
More native German speakers at the Bitburg placement (although I did enjoy improving my skills very much so)

Camp Europe

I had so much fun working for Camp Europe! I am from the United States and wanted to have a unique summer traveling across Europe; Camp Europe gave me exactly that. The week of training was just as much fun as it was intense. We then began our regular work assignments. The awesome thing about Camp Europe is that you can be placed in several different camps all across Europe; the more diverse you want your experience the more diverse they'll make it for you. They are very good about listening to what type of camp you are comfortable working at and making sure that everyone gets the experience they want. Not only was I able to spend some time gaining valuable work experience, but I was also able to do a lot of traveling across Europe. I worked with and became friends with so many different people from all over the world that I am still in contact with and planning on traveling with again soon. There really is nothing else like this.
