Our four annual camps are a meeting point for Danish young people between the ages of 18-30 who are on their way on exchange or have just returned from a stay abroad, for foreign young people who come to Denmark on exchange and all our active members in committees and local associations in Danish ICYE.

The weekend camps are held four times a year and offer preparation seminars for Danes who are about to travel, homecoming seminars for returning Danish volunteers and activities for the foreign volunteers who are in the country.

At the camps, there are between 20 and 100 participants, so we need volunteers who want to plan meals, find recipes, take care of shopping, prepare food and ensure staffing in the kitchen.

As part of the camp and kitchen committee, your primary tasks will be to:

  • Plan meals for all days
  • Be aware of allergens and organize meal plans that cater for everyone
  • Write a shopping list and coordinate food shopping
  • Prepare and cook food at the camps
  • Find volunteers to help in the kitchen

As a person you have:

  • Possibility to participate in one or more of our four annual camps
  • The ability to delegate and get others started on tasks
  • Passion for cooking
  • Interest in planning (of meals, shopping and responsible)
  • Possibility to participate in planning meetings leading up to the camps
  • Experience cooking for many people (not a must)
  • Eager to meet young people from all over the world
  • Want to try your hand at recipes from around the world

Being a volunteer in the camp and kitchen committee is perfect for you who:

  • Will only participate in camps and to a limited extent,
  • Want to have an essential and important role in the organization, but do not have the opportunity to put a lot of energy and commitment on a daily basis
  • Would like to experience the joy of reunion by seeing people again and again and catching up since last time
  • Will be free to attend events in the rest of the organization
  • Will be free to work on other things at the camps, participate in whatever you want, have fun etc.
  • Will have a lot of input - you set the limitation yourself
  • Will have a large contact surface in the organization
  • Have experience in organizing, planning and running a commercial kitchen

The entire camp takes care of cleaning up and washing dishes together, so that the kitchen does not hang around after every meal.

As part of the kitchen, part of the work is done before the camp, while the majority of the work is put on the camps themselves when cooking.

A large part of the work in the camp and kitchen committee takes place before the camp itself, where meal plans are planned and organised, participants are assessed and staffing is ensured at the camps. However, most of the work is done at the camp itself, when the cooking has to be done.

Who are we?

Danish ICYE (International Cultural Youth Exchange) is an exchange and youth organization for young people between 18-30 years of age. We work to reduce cultural barriers and thereby contribute to creating more peace in the world across national borders. We send both Danish young people out into the world on exchange and voluntary work and receive foreign volunteers to Denmark. The idea is that young people from all over the world should have the opportunity to travel and meet new cultures.

Does this sound like something for you or do you have questions for us?
