From the Canadian Camping Association:
The International Camp Directors Course (ICDC) has been developed as a professional development course for camp managers, directors, and operators. It is equally valuable for any experienced camp staff professional.
It will be held on December 10th-13th at Notre-Dame-De-Fatima (25 min. from Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport) and will cost $750/person including course materials, meals and lodging.
Goal 1 – To present the basics of camp management in the core areas of the organized body of knowledge
Goal 2 – To expand their network of peers and develop a community of professionals in a “camp like” atmosphere
Goal 3 – To provide an introduction to self-directed learning and the participants’ role in their own professional development process
This intensive four day course addresses all aspects of Camp Management in an interactive exchange environment with other members of the camping and outdoor community and builds on skills and learning of both faculty and participants. The curriculum has been reviewed and revised over the years and, in some cases, has also been adapted to local, national or regional situations and standards, making it a valuable professional development tool for local needs and a bridge to camping at the international level.
All courses are approved and administered by the International Camping Fellowship (ICF) using both local and international ICDC Trainers. Certain courses are designed to provide the most international overview of the camping profession and these courses also offer a supplementary training in developing future course instructors (ICDC Trainer).
