Statements This camp has been by far one of the greatest experience of my short life (Audrey, F) Ich sehe das Camp als eine wunderschöne Form, Menschen aus anderen Kulturen/Ländern kennenzulernen (Selma, CH) Camp helped me with decision whether and where to go for my Erasmus studies (František, CZ) Camp was a fantastic experience for me... maybe it just showed me what like I really am..... (Ana-Marija, HR) In the camp I spent the most happy time of my summer and the most useful one: learning how to cooperate efficiently, training my spoken English (Marco, I) I have never experienced anything like IYC, and IYC 2011 has got a special place in my next holidays plans! (Martyna, PL) En resumen, ha sido una de las mejores experiencias que he vivido y me encantaría poder repetirla en año que viene... (Alba, E)
