Sign up for EuroCamp 2023 in Warwick and experience a summer of adventure and a design street art!

Warwick is this year’s international destination for EuroCamp 2023, an event that brings together 20 young people from Warwick and its European twin and friendship towns for two weeks of adventure and a creative project.

Organised by Warwick Town Council and its twin towns, applications are now open to find the four young people, aged between 16 and 21, to represent Warwick.

EuroCamp 2023 will run for two weeks from Sunday 23rd July through to Sunday 6th August.

The four will become ambassadors for the town and host its visitors, of the same age group, from Warwick’s twin and friendship towns of Saumur (France), Verden and Havelberg (Germany), and Formigine (Italy).

EuroCamp 2023 will be headquartered at Warwick Racecourse, with accommodation and catering included for each participant during the event. In addition to having use of the facilities at HQ, EuroCamp will deliver creative project, activities and adventure for all participants with experiences across the town and its iconic landmarks.

At the heart of EuroCamp 2023, is a collaborative and creative project that will see the participants create a unique artwork installation after being taught the street art techniques. The creative project will be led by artists who will guide the Eurocampers through the process of designing and producing a piece of street art for the town.

For the two weeks, EuroCamp will be managed by a professional youth worker, supported by a project team.

Councillor Richard Eddy, chair of the Community & Culture, Warwick Town Council, said:

“Previous EuroCamps have successfully hosted pupils from local schools and given them experience in working together with others from our twin towns on community projects, learning key skills, and aiding personal development, whether here in Warwick or in Europe. It’s also a lot of fun for everyone involved!

“From previous years, it’s evident that EuroCamp has both empowered many of our young people and provided a thoroughly entertaining summer for participants as they spend two weeks with other young people from France, Germany and Italy.

“Participants get to level up their experience, whether they want to build confidence or learn leadership skills, and, through building international friendships, there’s also the opportunity to develop language skills. Plus, they’ll be representing Warwick as an official host of EuroCamp 2023, which is going to look great on anyone’s CV or UCAS application.”

To take part in EuroCamp 2023, applicants must live in Warwick with a CV34 postcode.

Eurocamp 2019

Eurocamp 2019 was held in Verden, Germany from Wednesday 17th July to Tuesday 30th July with participants from Saumur, Formigine, Havelberg and Warwick. Daisy, Anna, Peter and Benedict represented Warwick while completing a wide range of community work in Verden.

Eurocamp 2018

Cora-Laine, Jessica, Oliver and Rowan spent 2 weeks in Saumur taking part in a number of community activities, as part of our annual Eurocamp between Saumur, Havelberg, Verden and Formigine.

The camp, which rotates between participating towns, hopes to secure lasting links across Europe.

Cora-Laine, “Eurocamp in Saumur, for me, was an unforgettable experience. I met so many amazing people I hope to never lose contact with and with them created something beautiful in which we could share with the local community. I have never connected with a group of people in such a short time, making the trip all the more better. I am proud to have been on Eurocamp and I hope many more young people continue to go on it in the future.”

Jessica, “Eurocamp was the most incredible experience I’ve ever had the pleasure of taking part in. Saumur is a beautiful town in which there is so much to see and do, and many events to take part in, like the festival which we went to and had an amazing time. I cannot wait to come back to Saumur one day and brings my whole family to experience this brilliant community!”

Oliver, “For me, the experience I had was one of the best things I’ve ever had the pleasure of doing. It didn’t take long for me to make genuine friends for life; we worked together, ate together, cried together, laughed together and sweated together! Doing work for a fellow community was so fulfilling, it made me want to help contribute to our wider society outside of Warwickshire. One of the best things about this experience for me was having the ability to learn and practice my languages, despite English being used to communicate with everybody. Waking up each day and speaking French, English, Italian and German was a challenge but one worth tackling! The Eurocamp has also taught me about the importance of cross cultural dialogue and empathy, as each group had customs, traditions and quirks that were respected and embraced all, particularly in cuisines! I will honestly never forget Eurocamp, what it’s taught me and who I’ve met, thank you!”

Rowan, “Two weeks in Saumur, I wish it has have been more. Full of laughter, joy and light, so many wonderful nights. Happy memories with people at ease. Life-long friendship formed, my expectations outperformed. Such a great opportunity to help an internal community. After eating a lot of baguette, it’s an experience I will never forget’

Warwick Town Council would like to thank Saumur for organising and hosting this year’s Eurocamp
