We are excited to announce the 2022 European Instructor Camp! It will begin Friday evening (26 August), continue all day Saturday, and end after a half-day of training on Sunday. If you are local, you won't need to miss work to attend. And if you're flying in, you can return home Sunday afternoon.

Participants are encouraged to attend the entire camp, but those with schedule restrictions may choose to attend Saturday only.

This camp is open to all Legacy Program members (of all ranks) who are age 13 or older. There will be a Legacy certification testing on Saturday for those seeking to earn a collar upgrade or renew their Level 3 certification.
