ghadya169Nothing can stop you from achieving your dreams! Avalon is the place to make this happen – because you’re not judged by your grades, but your personality. Although we came from different backgrounds and cultures, we shared the same goal – to learn from each other – because we need many hands to make big changes in the world.

kevanhWords can’t express the joy, love and knowledge I gained in such a short time. At Avalon a shell of mine was broken unlocking creative thoughts I didn’t know I possessed. The summer was like the stars in the sky, it showed me you can be whatever you put your mind to. AHOO!

camilleOne of the biggest problems in the world right now is how we’re treating the environment, we all know the heat is coming down on us right now and here at Avalon they’ve helped me know I can help the system even just by small steps.

jannaThe best part was the solo, being by yourself in the wilderness, facing your fears, getting to know who you really are. Avalon is a beautiful experience, you learn about yourself, others and different cultures. It´s really worth it, Go if you can!

gimenaAvalon is a great way to learn English, learn about the environment and have fun. I especially loved the canonying, where you get to jump through waterfalls, and the archery and ecobuilding were great too.

Testimonials from our Volunteers

david_4-3Volunteering at Avalon School was mind-blowing. The open atmos-phere meant I could learn so much about myself from all the people around me and what could be better than being happy by making other people happy? It’s such a good feeling to receive an honest, satisfied and warm smile!

miriamThis was an amazingly enriching experience for me, living in a beautiful natural environment with people from different parts of the world, religions and cultures and sharing a series of activities based around respect for others and the environment, personal development, art, consciousness and ecology. I also learnt about decision making processes and conflict resolution. It´s been great to work with people who want to change the world and I think this is an ideal camp for young people in the times of change we are living.
