ICF has developed a training series of free online/live educational workshops designed to inform and support the international camping community. These series will take place under the umbrella of ICF Academy.

We have several types of learning opportunities planned!

  1. Webinars with facilitation by presenters.
  2. Workshops.
  3. Roundtable discussions (using a town hall meeting format).
  4. Camp virtual tours.

The first event of ICF Academy took place on February 16th, 2021.
