ICDC Trainers Course

The ICDC Trainer Course is designed to develop strong camping in countries and regions of the world by training experienced camp professionals in both the core curriculum of the ICDC as well as leadership/management skills necessary to provide an ICDC course.

For this reason participation is not automatic, rather it is dependent upon selection and invitation based upon a combination of factors including this application form. ICDC Trainees arrive ahead of the regular ICDC to work with the faculty before the ICDC course participants arrive. The trainees are then expected to participate in the course as a participant as well as demonstrate their expertise and training skills at various times.
