We are please to announce that we are holding a certificate EPICERT. EPICERT is established to integrate feasible systems to prevent the spreading of the pandemia. We will keep you updated as soon as we have more information.
For the camps we are still very positive that they are happening and are waiting for the new regulations. Only our camp in Ireland had to be cancelled.
Wow, we can probably open at the end of May, at least in Germany, and are really looking forward to it. Please have a little patience, as we see what exactly this means for our summer camps. We expect the guidelines in the coming week and then we'll plan right away. If there is a capacity limit, all those who are booked in by then will have priority on the places - so don't worry, you'll definitely get the information first! Even if you book now: you don't have to pay a deposit and there is no risk!
Dear friends of Camp Adventure,
We have always been aware of the fact that we are blessed with great families as customers and a fantastic team that stands behind us in good times and bad. And this special commitment is exactly what we are now experiencing every single day.
Over the past weeks we have received so much encouragement from your side, we have read so many moving emails and experienced an incredible solidarity – we are just overwhelmed and want to thank you for such a massive support!
But where do we go from here? It is a fact that we had to cancel our Easter Camps due to official regulations and of course for the protection of the population. It is also confirmed that there won’t be any school trips and most likely, no other group travel until the beginning of the summer holidays. Nobody can currently predict what the summer will look like. But you know what, we remain optimistic and simply hope that we will be able to reopen very soon. Maybe with a smaller number of children, medical checks upon arrival or other sensible measures. But we just can’t imagine a summer without you!
Unfortunately, there have been cancellations and there might be some more but whenever you decide to accept our offer to rebook your travels or to convert payments already made into vouchers it’s that fresh breeze that keeps us going. We are thrilled how many of those who unfortunately had to do without an Easter camp already chose one of those options despite the fact that there are quite a few families out there who have to worry about their own professional and financial situation. We highly appreciate your support – you are just amazing!
We will definitely survive this difficult time by using our financial reserves and thanks to economic aid and fresh loans. And we will emerge from the crisis stronger than before, also due to your encouragement and because we all know how important summer camps are for the wellbeing of our children. Not only as recreation areas without any web conferences and as retreats from the general digital overload we are currently exposed to, but also as places where social contact, a sense of community and nature are central and where people can regain a certain strength after such a stressful and tiring crisis.
And last but not least we know how important it is for you as parents to be able to take a well-deserved break after these exhausting and challenging weeks, knowing that your children are well looked after at camp.
In case you would like to continue helping us, please tell other families about your camp experiences by using social media; just post some funny pictures or write a nice review. In the meantime, we're continuing to prepare our camps and train our international team so that we are ready for summer because one thing is for sure: Giving up is not an option. Stay healthy and think positive. This crisis will also end at some point – hopefully very soon!
Your Camp Adventure Team
Regardless of which country or culture a child, teen or staff member comes from – they should all feel comfortable together and experience a unique and unforgettable time at camp.
Camp Adventure was founded by Jan Vieth in 2002, and since then, has been connecting the positive aspects of German holiday camps and Canadian summer camps to provide outstanding and unique adventure and sport holiday experiences for kids and teenagers from all over the globe. Since 2015 we offer outdoor experiantial School Trips in our own Camp Adventure Academy in Walsrode, North Germany.
Camp Adventure specializes in outdoor programs and activities renowned for incorporating an adventurous flair with nature awareness, teamwork and building self-esteem. As an expert provider of adventure camps, we also offer consulting for hotels, resorts and outdoor leisure businesses interested in program design and development.
Every year our team is made up of an international mix. The non-profit association Camp Europe e.V. with headquarters in Hamburg and a branch office in Canada takes care of the acquisition of national and international applicants. Since we have about 50% German-speaking children, there are also German carers in every location. But many also come from other countries, such as England, Spain, Canada and Australia, to name just a few.
from 30 different countries
We are not a huge company or a group of companies - we are a family business. Our founder, Jan Vieth, knows all team members personally and trains them together with our coaching team. We have approx. 150 team members from approx. 30 different nations in action per year, who are on average on duty for 4 weeks in our camps. Our international office team consists of 15 employees who work in Canada, Spain and Germany. Every year we have participants from more than 60! different nations and our recomer rate of over 70% also speaks for itself.
We attach great importance to consider each child as an individual and therefore do not make mass camps with 1000 participants. We are also no "booze party beach" youth tour operator. All forms of violence and drugs - including alcohol and cigarettes - are excluded for all participants, regardless of age.
We love Camp
participants from more than 70 countries
feel the real nature in the best surroundings
make friends from all over the world
leave your comfort zone, challenge yourself
