Novalis Camp is an international team based in Germany. There are Germans, Russians, French, Arabs and many other nationalities in our team, and we believe that this is not the end of the list! It doesn’t matter for us where you are from, what you do and what religion you have — we welcome everyone who wants to join us.

Both those who are already in Germany and those who are abroad can take part in our project. It doesn’t matter what country you are from, we provide the documents which are necessary for obtaining a Schengen visa for the duration of our camp.

Our main goal

Our main goal is international cultural exchange.
We show our participants that the world is full of people, one way or another similar to each other, but whose mentality, history and traditions may differ.

Our priority is to invite people from abroad to Germany, because we want to give them the opportunity to see the world, get to know different cultures and show that nothing is impossible in this life, if a person is not just dreaming, but turning a dream into a goal. Nevertheless, we are glad to see in our project those who are already in Germany and want to share their experience.

We also show and teach our participants how to live and work in a team, respect each other and the traditions of other peoples, be attentive to the people around them and keep the house clean and tidy.

Intellectual development and art are very significant for our project as well. We try to devote enough time to discussions and communication on topics that we all together consider are important for the modern world. Our conversations take place in a friendly atmosphere in warm and cozy evenings in the hall or by the fire.

Also, our program has a specific topic (about that you can read in the plan for the summer in our E-book), which our participants can get to know quite well during the camp. respects art and its contribution to everyday life, so we hold creative evenings and visit various museums and exhibitions.

You can learn more about our goals in the project itself!
