Welcome to InterAction Belgium

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE – SUMMER 2021 

In 2020, we were able to run InterAction Belgium by creating a ‘bubble’ of 50 people. The latest Belgian covid rules (as of June) allow us to have 100 people on site, for the duration of camp, which is great news! This summer we will be back at the Château de Courrière and in French and in English. At the moment, very sadly we are only able to accept Belgian-based participants but we will keep a ‘reserve list’ for those living in other countries should the situation with quarantine/testing/closed borders change sufficiently to allow travel to camp. So please get in touch if you want to come but don’t live in Belgium and we will contact you if we can open up registration (please send an email to infobelgium.interaction@gmail.com).

Here’s what we usually get up at InterAction Belgium…

InterAction Belgium runs two summer camps: Camp A for 14 to 17 year olds and runs for 8 nights, and Camp B is for 11 to 14 year olds and runs for 6 nights. InterAction provides an opportunity to make new friends, try loads of new activities and all in French and English! Yes, that’s right: the language of Victor Hugo meets that of Shakespeare. From the moment you wake up to the last minutes of the day, you will be immersed in a francophone and anglophone environment with leaders who will speak your language and help you to understand everything.

There is also a huge range of activities on InterAction: volley-ballfootballswimminghigh-ropes, arts & crafts and drama for beginners… as well as fantastic team games organised by our leaders. Have you ever tried to parachute an egg out of a chateau window? InterAction is the place to try all sorts of new things!

What do we do at InterAction Belgium?

Activities, friendships and discovering the Christian faith all take place at InterAction Belgium. The choice of activities changes year to year depending on availability but we also make sure that there is a wide range of options to suit everybody and every year there are always some surprises

Campers are divided into ‘dorm groups‘ by gender and mother-tongue of between two and eight. Each dorm is assigned two or three leaders, committed Christians who volunteer their time to take part in camp.

 

 A typical day involves morning and evening meetings where an age-appropriate Bible talk is given and we sing together. The aim is to cover the fundamentals of the Christian faith throughout the week. 

There is also a short daily Bible study in dorm groups for campers to delve deeper into some of the big issues. The rest of the day is full of activities, both onsite at the chateau and off site. All of these activities are included in the price of camp.

For those who live in Belgium only

If you live in Belgium, your “mutualité” (healthcare insurer) will enable you to claim x €/day on camp, and up to x €/year towards the cost of camp for your child before they turn 18. The best thing to do is to download and send the documents from your “mutualité” by email to Annabel from the Ligue pour la Lecture de la Bible (annabel.barbieux@ligue.be). If you have any questions, do send an email to Annabel. Thank you!
