Zollikofen (Switzerland, 2003)

In 2003 the ICC traveled outside of the European Union once more, this time to Switzerland. Those who expected the camp to be set in a more lively place after Loughborough were probably surprised; the group traveled by train to Zollikofen (near Bern), which turned out to be a rather small town.

Loughborough (England, 2002)

The second time the Teiresiás Center coordinated the Czech national participation in the ICC was in Loughborough in mid-England in 2002. Compared to the previous year in Slovenia, slightly smaller groups came to England; on the other hand, more seminars were prepared. 

Skofja Loka (Slovenia, 2001)

The role of the national coordinator of the Czech participation in the ICC was taken by the Teiresiás Center for the first time. The camp was set in a marvelous historic city of Skofja Loka, a place of residence of Slovenian bishops not far from the capital city Ljubljana.
