In this adventure camp, you will travel around Iceland’s Ring Road. Visit the most beautiful places on the island and one of its best-kept secrets: the Vestmannaeyjar Islands. With exciting activities: kayaking, horseback riding, whale watching, and more. Adventure camps are for teens 15 to 17 years old with a special focus on creative photographing.
During the camp, our teenagers will also have an exploration of photography in the digital age to help students learn how to get the most out of their cameras while being creative in the process. They will get hands-on instruction and experience with the tools necessary to research, compose, capture, and refine digital photographic projects. We will mostly focus on nature when it comes to topics and we encourage our participants to be creative. Iceland is a magic country for photographers, so we are sure that our group will have a lot of great photos and memories when they return home after the camp.

Food is included for the duration of the work camp; however, everyone is expected to do their fair share of the cooking and cleaning. Since it is always nice to try new and different dishes, volunteers are encouraged to bring along their favorite recipes from home!
We provide a well-balanced and healthy variety of food products that includes a wide variety of whole grains, seasonal fruits & vegetables, pantry staples, dairy products, vegetarian/vegan options. We do not provide soft drinks, candies, or alcohol. We try to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet by cutting down our meat intake and we usually encourage volunteers to try more sustainable dishes. Please let us know if you have any food allergies or special dietary needs in advance.
We will also focus on intercultural learning. Every evening, volunteers will present each of their Countries & Cultures. It can be a presentation, a game, videos…the form of introduction is up to you! Therefore, we encourage you to bring along some food, photos, or anything interesting related to your country for a fun and informative evening amongst other volunteers.
