Board Appointments & Volunteer Interest
The International Camping Fellowship is a worldwide assembly of camping professionals interested in sharing their enthusiasm, knowledge and commitment to the camping experience. It was founded in 1987 amidst the energy of individuals gathered around the dream of a better world through camping and it is rooted in the belief that we can make a difference by “bringing together the world of outdoor experience.” The International Camping Fellowship welcomes all who foster international understanding through the organized camp experience.
THE OBJECTIVES OF THE ICF
- To coordinate the exchange of news and information between individuals, camps, outdoors experiences and organizations in different countries.
- To encourage and facilitate bilateral and multilateral exchanges.
- To stimulate efforts to achieve international understanding and global living, leadership, and ecological action through organized camping and outdoor experience.
- To encourage the organization of regional and national camping associations
The history and strength of ICF is tied fundamentally to the volunteers who believe in the value of developing a shared network of youth professionals around the world. Each of us has our vocation or our avocation in camping programs in our home, regional or national camping communities. The ICF tries to bring together the world of outdoor experience so that that we can all develop together and improve our commitments to youth, global education and the environment.
ICF needs volunteers.
The ICF Board forms the basic governance of the organization. Everyone who serves on the ICF Board does so as a volunteer. The real work is done by committees and sub-committees of ICF volunteers. These committees do their work in various ways. In some cases, work is done locally for the benefit of all. In other cases a working committee may be scattered around the world and communicates through e-mail and electronic media.
ICF needs you to volunteer.
