October 9-13, 2017
Sochi, Rosa Khutor
The International Camping Congress is an excellent opportunity to discuss with your associates the most important and challenging question related to camping: How can adults and children in a camp setting create happiness and provide growth opportunities to last a lifetime?
The International Camping Congress is a dialogue platform for associates to share achievements and discuss the prospects for the development of the camp movement.
The International Camping Congress is also an international research forum where professionals of the camping movement and educators will have an opportunity to demonstrate the results of their research and learn about the current work of their colleagues.WHY VISIT ICC2017 IN RUSSIA?
Attn.: Participants and organizers of the XI International Camping Congress!
Dear friends and colleagues,
On behalf of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation,
I welcome you to the XI International Camping Congress.
Today, great attention is paid to the issues of kids’ recreation and health improvement. Therefore, one of the primary tasks of the central government is to establish a meaningful dialogue with representatives of expert organizations, schools and parent committees, as well as the business community in order to combine efforts in creating the conditions for quality and safe children's recreation activities.
I have a strong belief that the Congress programme will contribute to finding new solutions in improving the kids’ recreation and health improvement system, in developing advanced pedagogical technologies and attracting public and private partnerships and investment in education in general.
I wish all the participants fruitful work, successful exchange of experience and professional ideas!
Best regards, O. Vasilyeva , Minister of Education and Science of the Russian Federation
On behalf of the International Camping Fellowship, I am pleased to add my voice of welcome and encouragement to attend the 11th International Camping Congress in Sochi, Russia. For 30 years (since 1987), the ICF has been ‘bringing together the world of outdoor experience’. Exactly 20 years ago (in 1997), we attended our very first Congress outside of North America to meet the wonderful camping spirit of Russia in St Petersburg. Attendees at that Congress still talk about the incredible events that took place at that Congress.
At every Congress since 1997, the Russian delegations have been the largest, the most spirited and the most enthusiastic of the international delegations in attendance. We look forward to gathering in southern Russia, this time, in beautiful Sochi, to continue our sharing, our learning and our growing together.
And here we are in 2017. No matter your country of origin or your experience in camping, there will be wonderful things to share this October, in sessions and keynotes as well in conversations and tours. The theme of “Sharing Happiness with Children around the World” will bring us all closer to our camping goals.
See you in Sochi!
John Jorgenson, President of International camping fellowship

in the best recreation opportunities for our younger generation and provides good time to make new colleagues and friends from all over the world, to exchange creative ideas and enjoy communication and wide field of positive energy.
We often hear today, that our children are our future. But, in fact, our children are our present. The Foundation, that we lay for the next generation’s full development on all continents today, tomorrow will become modern ideas
and points of view.
Oleg Kudryavtsev, Chairman of Board of The National camp association,
To Participants of the XI International Congress of Children's Camps for Recreation!
Allow me to welcome all the participants of this forum on behalf of the company "Business Innovations".
A brilliant phrase "Childhood is a huge land, where everyone comes from" belongs to the French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupery. And tomorrow of our civilization depends on the way we cultivate this "land" today. The XI International Congress is a large-scale and extremely important event in the field of organizing active rest for children aimed at a full-fledged recreational effect - the physical and spiritual development of children outside school curricula. Discussion within the framework of this event is an excellent opportunity for sharing experience and methods of organizing children’s rest with the help of innovative techniques and devices ensuring secure and creative atmosphere for harmonious development of the younger generation. It is today and here that we lay the bases for our future. After all, children's holiday camps with their informal communication is the most productive way of forming moral values, social experience and psychological standards necessary for social life.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to the organizers of the Congress, as well as to our foreign colleagues for the unique opportunity to exchange national traditions, different approaches and opinions in the field of children’s upbringing.

Dear participants of the XI International Camping Congress,
Greetings from Tropicamp MusicFest , Malaysia.
Great lyrics “Heal the world, make it better place…for you and for me and the entire human race” was once sang by beloved Michael Jackson. The first important thing to say is that we have a responsibility to the future generations. Although this is harder to establish than you might at first expect, it does seem that most of the relevant objections can be answered. Sketching several of these answers and what we can do together with the nature will be the primary goals for the XI International Camping Congress...
