Our Core Values


Create an international network of summer camps throughout Europe that enables University students to gain international work experience. We believe in Outdoor Education as a way to promote universal values, the appreciation of other cultures and nature. We believe in Creativity as an effective method to promote affordable programs for university students and campers alike, to travel and learn.

We believe in fraternity among cultures as a milestone for building mutual tolerance and respect. We believe in making efforts to build an international community willing to share every individual’s knowledge and experience. We value diversity as a full expression of tolerance of everyone and exclusion of no one. We value imagination and fantasy as an effective doctrine of education on abstract but also quite important matters.

International Exchange Coordination Excellence. To create ways of promoting fair opportunities for international camping, summer internship placements and work and travel experiences. To implement high standards of the North American Camping traditions exported to Europe. We value people’s time investment without a straight forward aim on profit, the help that comes honestly offered. In return, we believe in giving back accessible opportunities to students, low profile campers & the host communities.

EDUCATION
Provide an easy and accessible mechanism for students to go abroad to experience an international summer internship program, in which they will be able to learn and practice a different language, attend a summer camp or English summer school where they will meet people their age, and participate with other staff in the creation their own educational projects.

RECREATION
Extend the network of people across the globe interested in alternative teaching methods, in a fun and safe environment. Expand the vast activity catalogue & educational resources and share them internationally.

What we do


Camp Europe was born from the ideas and dreams of two university students, fifteen years ago. Since then, the project has been growing & improving slowly but steady. It all started with the aim of bringing into Europe the know-how’s of North American Camping traditions into Europe, at the time that Canadian & US students had an opportunity to work & travel around Europe during their summer vacations. Every year we have increased our workfloat and developed different projects to fullfill different profiles. Now days, we are proud to handle thousands of applications from where we get to select the best from all over the world, as we currently deal with applicants from more than forty five countries. Although our structure and projects are constantly evolving, our dreams, passion and values remain the same.

With partners in European and North American cities, Camp Europe has built a bridge which offers an affordable opportunity to Highschool and university students or youth in general looking to participate as a camper or an Intern, in one or several of the many summer English camps located around Europe. During summer, European towns transform into an international campground for outdoor educational and recreational activities. In almost every European country, these kinds of programs are often bilingual: offered in English as well as the native language of the host country.

Camp Europe was born under an agreement reached by people living in North America and Europe with an avid interest in global citizenship and who believe that we have a lot to learn from each other on a variety of topics: from effective communication between different cultural backgrounds, fraternity, leadership, environmental awareness; to creativity & adventure sports.
Canadian, Australian, U.S. and many other university students travel and learn different languages while meeting people with like-minded interests.
Our exchange program is based on paid internship placements, giving students the opportunity to gain international working experience, language and full culture immersion into the native customs of their country of placement, and extend them the chance to travel through Europe. Acquire teaching experience through the creation and implementation of stimulating, fun and safe activities for children from all parts of the world.

Tailor-made school trips, adventure holidays and summer camps for groups of 20+ students. Our programs include modern pedagogical-experiential education contents and lots of adventure, which fortifies group cohesion, develops tight relationships amongst students and boosts their self-esteem and confidence. Community trips are an important component of any student’s life. These kind of experiences motivate students to care about others, to improve their self confidence, and are also a great opportunity to get out of the comfort zone, out of the usual social environment.
