About Village Camps

For almost 50 years since 1972 more than 300'000 campers have experienced Village Camps Programmes, helping raise generations of kids and teenagers.

Lifetime friends, lifetime memories and even marriages happen as a result of Village Camps!

Many campers come back several years in a row, in some cases right through from the age of 7 to 18. And it doesn't end there! After turning 18 a good number of campers become counsellors. Around one quarter of our counsellors have had camper experience themselves and carry on sharing it with new generations.

Whether the programme experience is as extended as this or whether it's just for one time, it often comes full circle with many sending their own children to camp. There are already three generations of families that have shared their adventures with Village Camps!
