Information about the future of Encounters in 2022 and beyond will be announced soon!

What is Encounters?

Are you looking to create new friends that you won’t be able to live without?

Ready for some high adrenaline activities that will get your blood pumping?

Look no further… The next part of your journey is here, Encounters is back this Summer!

Encounters now in its fifth cycle is a 5-day residential camp that builds upon all of the fun and excitement of Caring & Sharing and guarantees to push participants to new heights. Participants will be given the opportunity to challenge themselves further – both physically and mentally, develop leadership and inter-personal skills and embark upon a journey of self-discovery through a combination of exciting outdoor activities, interactive team projects, fun evening entertainment and much much more!


Who is it for?

Encounters was created to provide a vital stepping stone for the youth, creating a seamless Journey from one programme to the next from Caring and Sharing to Global Encounters and Al-Ummah. It allows youth aged 13 to 15 from all over Europe and the rest of the world to be stretched out of their comfort zone, setting them up for the subsequent stages outside of camp.

Facilitators (18+) looking for the following:

  • Meet and connect with like minded individuals to form lifelong relationships and memories
  • Have a passion about the youth of today and their development
  • Keen to include young members of the Jamat in the Ismaili community
  • Develop their own facilitation, teamwork, communication and interpersonal skills
