International Youth Camp

300 participants

The summer of 2015 sparkled with excitement in a beautiful field in Italy. We found a magnificent place near Gaggio Montano in the region Emilia-Romagna. People from many different backgrounds traveled to Italy to enjoy two weeks together.
The sun was on our heads, rain fell down from the sky and even thunder crept up the mountain to fill the air with energy and excitement. We hiked, we played, we sang, we laughed. We experienced Emilia-Romagna from up close. All the ingredients for a perfect camp were there those two beautiful weeks in Gaggio Montano. The words of the campsong still ring in our ears.

Mission Statement:
The aim of the IYC is to create an international youth camp where everyone can discover and challenge themselves physically, mentally and spiritually while having a crazy amount of fun.
Everyone is unique and everyone has their own personality and qualities.
We create a safe, natural and healthy environment in which the full potential of every individual can be expressed. This open and encouraging environment allows each individual to flourish and to contribute their qualities to create the magical camp atmosphere.
We connect with nature and the local culture: we search for a natural
camping spot in the middle of nowhere to put up our tents, and build our
home; we meet the locals and find out about the region; we search for neighbours willing to provide us with fresh bread, vegetables, fruits, milk, eggs and cheese; and where possible we eat organic food during the camp.
