The last 10 days in pictures

Today we come to the end of ICC UK 2019. It has been an incredible 10 days made special by all the people brought together to take part. Please enjoy the camp photo gallery below which is full of happy memories!

From origami to Italian cooking

And so on Thursday, ICC’s programme of exciting and varied workshops continued. The multi-national nature of the camp opens up so many unique opportunities as each attending country offers a workshop of its choice.

Thursday’s workshops were a perfect demonstration of this with ‘Learning to Cook Italian Style’, ‘Japanese Studies – Learning Japanese Calligraphy and Origami’, ‘Music Editing’ and ‘Working with Fossils’ all on the timetable menu!

Friday is excursion day so watch this space for updates from the activities taking place in the Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales.

First full day of workshops at ICC UK

Another bright sunny morning on Wednesday got us off to a brilliant start for our first full day of workshops. It also saw the launch of the ICC Newspaper team! They were hot off the press learning all about creating, writing and publishing an engaging paper. We certainly can’t wait to read it.

We were also delighted to welcome a team from Microsoft who have taken the unique opportunity to meet young adults from across Europe (and never forgetting our friends from Japan) to engage and share with them some of their new up-coming technology.

Outdoor activities were once again popular on what was a beautiful summers evening! Here are a few photos from some of the day’s events.

First day a great success!

Tuesday was our first full day of camp with everyone up bright and early and ready to go, including Poland who arrived at 2.30am!

Our day began with an enthusiastic welcome meeting from Andrea, the ICC team and Luke from the UK VICTA team. Clearer on what lay ahead we set out in groups to become better orientated with the Royal National College for the Blind (RNC) campus. Everyone was very impressed by the facilities the college has to offer and if possible, were now even more keen to get started.

After lunch we set off for our first workshops of the camp which included Studying Abroad, Effective Browser Searching and Employability Skills, to name just a few! It was a busy afternoon with lots of learning and skills shared.

We have so far been blessed with a fine British Summer time, with temperatures peaking at over 30°C yesterday. This made our evening activities all the more enjoyable, especially a very typically English game of cricket which took place on the green! It has also been lovely to be able to enjoy mealtimes and social times outside on the terrace.

Here are a few photos for you to enjoy from Tuesdays activities!

Today is the today!

The VICTA team at the welcome desk

After months of planning, arrival day is here and we are ready to greet everyone at RNC Hereford UK. We are looking forward to a fantastic 10 days ahead.

Wishing everyone safe journeys and don’t forget to watch out for our welcome teams at Birmingham Airport and Birmingham International train station, who will be waiting to point you in the right direction. They will be wearing their white VICTA t-shirts with our rainbow logo on.

When you arrive at RNC head to the main entrance at the Learning Hub and we will show you to your rooms.
