Previous ICF Congresses
The International Camping Fellowship encourages the creation and running of International Camping Congresses(ICC) in locations around the world on an approximate time frame of one every three years.
PURPOSE OF AN ICC
- To provide a venue and opportunity for camp professionals, students, friends and retirees in camping to meet, network, discuss and exchange views.
- To provide education in current trends and training on camping practices, of interest to an international audience, and applicable in all regions.
- To enable the host country, through its local association and organizing committee, to present camping, camping practices and local culture that are of interest to visiting delegates and delegations.
- To raise the profile of camping, generally, and in the host country, in particular, by presenting camping in the best light to both the media and the general public.
