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.


  1. To coordinate the exchange of news, research, professional development and information among individuals, camps, outdoors experiences and organizations world-wide.
  2. To encourage and facilitate bilateral/multilateral exchanges by bringing people together.
  3. To stimulate efforts towards international understanding, global education, leadership, and ecological action through organized camping, camp education and outdoor experiences.
  4. To encourage community-building through the organization of regional and national camping associations

The history and strength of ICF is tied fundamentally to the work of dedicated 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, learn together, grow together and improve our commitments to youth, global education and the environment.

ICF needs volunteers.

The ICF Board and Advisory Board form the basic governance of the organization. Everyone who serves on the ICF Board and Advisory Board does so as a volunteer. In addition, real work is done by committees and sub-committees of ICF volunteers. These committees accomplish 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 virtually.

ICF needs you to volunteer.
