Current information about our camps
Safety Certificate against Covid19 (26.05.2020)

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.

Summer is coming (07.05.2020)

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!

Thanks to all the families (12.04.2020)

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!

School trips

Our creative and adventurous class trip programs are characterized by their variety of programs and well coordinated experiential educational content. Our goal is to strengthen the class community, to awaken the team spirit. We achieve this, among other things, through individual supervision of the students. "Back to the nature" is one of our mottoes. We consciously decide to be "offline" for a few days and to relax.

Camp Adventure Academy

Bookings Summer Camps 2020

17.03.2020

Dear friends of Camp Adventure,
we are still convinced that we will be able to run our camps in summer as planned! Therefore we have decided that for bookings made from now on, the deadline for the prepayment of 50 € and thus the binding booking of our camps will be extended until April 30, 2020. So from now on you have the possibility to save a place in one of our camps and decide until the end of April if you want to take it.
We are looking forward to a great summer with you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Which languages are spoken in camp?

The main language in all our camps is English. In addition, there is the language of the country in which the camp takes place. As we have our headquarters in Germany, German teamers are always present in all camps. All announcements and explanations are therefore always in German and English. Of course, all our teamers with their different nationalities are also available for individual translations.

Who are the camp counselors?

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.

Should 12-year-olds rather go to Junior Camp or Senior Camp?

This question is not easy to answer and depends on the individual stage of development of your child. Therefore, as parents, we leave you the opportunity to decide for yourself. In the Junior Camp they belong to the older ones and can explore a lot in a playful way. In the Senior Camp they are the younger ones, who have role models through the older ones, whom they can emulate.

How is my child accommodated in camp?

In the Creative, Sports & Adventure Camp in Neuburg the participants are accommodated in tents with 6-7 persons. These are equipped with a floor and a wooden gallery. The participants can make themselves comfortable with sleeping bag and sleeping mat. In Walsrode the Juniors (7-12) and the Seniors (12-16) can choose between tent and hut. The wooden cabins are equipped with bunk beds and can accommodate 4-8 children each. In the other locations, participants are accommodated in shared rooms in youth hostels, sports centres or boarding schools run by private schools. Detailed information about the accommodation can be found at the various camps.

How do you provide safety for the kids?

Before our camp counselors start working with us, we check their police clearance certificates. You must be at least 19 years old to work for us as a teamer. They must also have a "First Aid Certificate", which must not be older than two years. In the camps we try to make sure that only adults from our camp or familiar faces are on the campground and that all our carers look after strangers.
We have many different camp sites. Some of them are fenced in, others are not. There are no armed guards or the like in our camps, as we believe that these conditions create a very insecure feeling. We do not have a high security zone in Germany, Northern Ireland or England, but we keep our eyes open and do everything we can to ensure that all participants have a great time.

Where do kids and camp counselors come from?

Camp Adventure attaches great importance to internationality. The participants and supervisors in our camps come from many different countries. Last year, for example, we had participants from over 60 different countries and supervisors from 25 different nations. Of course we don't know where they will come from this year. So we are at least as excited as you are.
Every year, our team is made up of an international mixture. Through our office in Hamburg and our branch office in Canada, we reach motivated and committed advisors from all over the world. Canadian and Australian teamers can therefore be found as well as German or Spanish teamers. Due to the different experiences and cultural backgrounds an indescribably fantastic, international atmosphere is created.

How is the choice of activities/courses in the camps made?

If your child would like to participate in a paid profile (e.g. horse riding, language course, GEOlino), this must be booked in advance when registering. In principle, no extra profiles have to be booked. A program with a variety of activities is of course available to the participants in all camps. The various activities can be chosen by the participants on site in the respective camps. We present the offers to the participants, so that everyone gets an insight into the different courses. The children can then register in the lists of the respective courses.

How big are the camps? How high is the caregiver key?

Capacities range from around 30 participants in smaller language camps to a maximum of 350 children. However, the maximum capacity is not reached every week. However, a minimum number of participants must be guaranteed in order to run the camp.
It is important to us that all children are always grouped in small groups of 5-8, with a supervisor as contact person. This way homesickness does not get a chance and despite the size of the camp in their group family, they experience a strong cohesion on which they can count!

When do I have to pay the price for the booked camp?

The deposit must be paid within 7 days of receipt of the booking confirmation. The remaining payment for the booked camp is due 4 weeks before the start of the camp at the latest. Further information can be found in our Terms & Conditions.
About
Our Team

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.
