Testimonials

  • “We finished the Counselors in Training course in 2015 and stayed for placement. During that month we bonded, to such a measure that after camp we remained in contact, and we are currently together in Hamburg after having traveled to places like Madrid, Milan, Berlin, Bonn and Moscow- Being with the same people 24/7 for a month really brought us together and created incredible friendships.

  • “The crazy stories we have to tell from third and fourth session are memories that will last forever, we are sure. Some of us are coming back as teamers this year, while most of us will be going back to do a placement, back to a summer of admittedly hard work, but full of freedom and fun. Working with children and spending our time together is all we need. We just wanted to thank you guys for this and we hope that our experience will encourage others to join the ICIT program! We will be back this summer!”
