Join the Animef Team!

Come and serve, make friends and give young people a great summer holiday

What is the Animef Team?

Animef stands for “animateur en formation” or leader in training. Our team of Animefs are a crucial part of InterAction as they serve the camp behind the scenes, enabling the leaders to focus on the needs of the campers. Each year, we are grateful for servant-hearted Animefs who help to make camp happen!


What will I be doing?

Working as a team of 10-15 Animefs from the UK, France and Belgium, you will serve the camp practically by washing up, cleaning and mopping etc. You will meet together for your own programme of Bible studies and seminars, going deeper into the Bible and looking together at practical issues in the Christian life. The programme runs in both languages so you will have the chance to put your language skills to use! There will also be time to join in some activities with the campers and to help run games for the campers.


Being an Animef is hard work but great fun. It’s a great opportunity to make new friends from across Europe, to practise your French and, most of all, to deepen your knowledge of God. We hope it will also be a helpful platform to train you to come back to serve InterAction as a leader longer term!


Who can come?

If you’re aged between 18 and 23 and are interested in growing in your knowledge of God as you serve Him, we’d love to have you on board! You’d also be very welcome if you are older and would prefer to serve as an Animef first to see how camp works before taking on leadership responsibility.


How much does it cost?

We ask Animefs to cover the cost of their accommodation and food, to enable us to keep the costs of camp as low as possible. This year, the baseline cost will be 200€ plus travel. Please get in touch if you’d like to come but this cost would make your participation impossible as we may be able to help out.
