  • Camp Counselor (otherwise known as ECC Tutors)

  • Camp Director

Our program is especially great for anyone studying education, teaching or languages!

Is ECC for me?

Check out our video and decide for yourself!

Orientation is divided into two parts:

1) Theory: online videos

2) Practical: orientation in Italy OR Austria (location TBC)


All accepted volunteers must do both the theory & practical orientations. You will learn everything you need to know to go to camp, including sample games, songs, activities.


It is good to come with plenty of ideas of your own, and activities, arts and crafts and games that you could teach during the afternoon. 

Orientation gives us the chance to get to know you and vice versa, and for us to place you at camps that we think you would be well suited to. 

Where: Assisi, Italy OR Austria
