Why Romania?

Our programme in Romania gives you the opportunity to try out teaching in a fun summer camp environment, where you will have the opportunity to lead activities and join trips in Romania each weekend. 


During the camp in either Predeal or Paltinis (near Sibiu), each day you will start with a morning routine and continue with different creative tasks you and the camp participants will get to complete and make your own! Games, drama, arts and crafts – you will definitely be able to get artistic. Your morning lessons would usually consist of activities like this, when after a lunch break – trips, hikes and sports will guarantee an energetic afternoon! 


While your focus during the programme will be on teaching and the summer camps, you will also get to explore and see Romania, and start a summer of backpacking, especially if you interrail! Romania truly is a hidden gem for travel.

Why Interrail?

Turn your summer teaching experience into a real adventure! 


Interrailing allows you to traverse the continent on your way to and from your summer camp. You’ll see what many other travellers won’t. Interesting towns and countryside – you will get to learn how to travel by yourself or in a group of travellers with the challenge of figuring out  “where to next?”  You will have the chance to meet other backpackers on their way around Europe too!


If you are on your university funding and meet your university’s widening participation criteria, then you may also be eligible to receive funding towards your travel. You should speak with your university funding department about this.


The Gotoco team will provide you with an Interrail Tips and Tricks Handbook which will help you on your journey. To get you starting with planning a route, we’ve added our favourite route to Romania!

How is your final camp location confirmed?

On the form below, you can confirm your interest in our Romania programmes. 


We will then speak with our partners across Europe and invite you to interview with the right camp for you. Some camps will require you to complete a pre-interview task as well to help them to get to know you better. 


Please note that team selection is a competitive process with our European partners and selections are made based on a range of factors, including a balance of skills and experience within a team. This means that your first choice cannot be guaranteed, but we will work with our partners to match you to one of your top five choices, and all of our camps will provide you with valuable teaching experience, the chance to backpack across Europe, and the opportunity to immerse yourself in a local culture.
