ICF Index of Resources

addressing CoVID-19 Crisis and Camps

In the current turmoil of health and financial issues brought on by COVID-19, ICF is eager to play its part in bringing together the various camp communities and their resources.

We do not wish to duplicate efforts or compound the flood of information crossing our feeds every day. Rather, ICF is ready to ‘fill in the gaps’ between these efforts by reaching across borders and ‘connect’ us all to resources developed by national, regional or other camp professional groups in various countries.

Some of the smartest minds in camp are creating, innovating, collaborating and sharing. We will get through this and we will do it together. The links below provide paths for any camp professional to gain access to the collective wisdom and knowledge of the full world of camping.

We are Stronger Together!
