Camp started in 1949 after the Second World War to bring young people together from different parts of Europe and beyond to re-establish positive relations.
While much has changed in that time, the camp still runs with the same aims: to share cultures, to break down barriers, to encourage intercultural relations, to encourage team work between different nationalities, to improve self-esteem and confidence in individuals...and to have FUN!!
International Camp has been running since 1949 from Essex Outdoors Mersea on the coast of Essex. Set in 62 acres of grassland, facilities include a brand new toilet and shower block with dedicated facilities for the disabled, a main hall, big screen cinema, dining rooms and laundry.
The centre has their own website at www.essexoutdoors.com/mersea
