Homepage / ABOUT ICF


The International Camping Fellowship is a worldwide assembly of camping professionals interested in sharing their enthusiasm, knowledge and commitment to the camping experience. It was founded in 1987 amidst the energy of individuals gathered around the dream of a better world through camping and it is rooted in the belief that we can make a difference by "bringing together the world of outdoor experience."  The International Camping Fellowship welcomes all who foster international understanding through the organized camp experience.
