Discovery is a brand new residential camp launching in 2023 for participants aged 11-13 and facilitators aged 18-30.

We believe that the right amount of challenge coupled with the right level of support leads to growth.
Discovery offers a bespoke opportunity to tailor our residential camp offering specifically to 11-13 year old participants.
With exhilarating outdoor-activities, vibrant evening activities and thought-provoking content sessions, we believe Discovery will enable our participants in this age range to challenge themselves, grow and have fun more than ever before!

Participants will have the chance to build lasting friendships and develop independence, self-confidence, and a strong sense of unity within the community. With a focus on personal growth as well as teamwork, Discovery is the perfect place for young people to build meaningful connections, learn about themselves to better understand their strengths, and have fun in a supportive and nurturing environment.

Discovery promises four days full of fun, growth and friendship – it’s not one to miss!

 Camp Objectives

  • Create a fun-filled positive environment that promote a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle
  • Unite participants from all backgrounds and provide opportunities to build lifelong friendships
  • Enhance self-esteem and provide opportunities for leadership development in a safe, nurturing and supportive environment

The camp is open to anyone aged 1113 years who is looking to:

  • Build meaningful, life-long friendships with other Ismailis from across the UK and Europe
  • Develop their leadership, teamwork and communication skills
  • Discover their own unique strengths by challenging themselves to go beyond their comfort zone

Facilitators aged 18–35

Discovery is a great introduction to camps for any first-time facilitators, as well as a fantastic stepping-stone for those who have facilitated before and want to challenge themselves in a new context. We’re looking for energetic, passionate and driven facilitators from any background!

We can offer you a chance to:

  • A chance to develop your leadership, communication and time-management skills (which are hugely transferable into your personal and professional lives!)
  • Building meaningful connections with other Ismailis
  • Have the most fun you’ll have in a four day period this entire year (we think so, anyway!)

Roles and responsibilities:

  • Communicate with parents to ensure a smooth process from application to pick-up
  • Coordinate and lead a group of participants throughout the weekend
  • Delivering exciting and engaging content to participants and encouraging discussions
  • Provide support to participants who are experiencing camp for the first time
  • Facilitate team-building activities and games to keep participants engaged

This is a great opportunity to be part of the first EVER Discovery – this truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity!

So whether you’re applying as a participant or a facilitator, please do apply – we welcome all applicants from any educational background, culture, location and ability!
