Camp Group gGmbH is a “Think-and-Do-Tank”. We address deep rooted social problems by bringing together research findings with tried and proven field practices. Our “Think-Tank” investigates new approaches and shapes policy through research, advocacy and consulting. The “Do-Tank” on the other hand, devises new projects and services. It brings forth projects like RespAct, Boxgirls International and JumpIn,working towards solving social challenges. We support these projects until the concept is refined and they are institutionally and financially independent, at which point multipliers implement them internationally. Our secret to success lies in the “Think” and “Do” nature of CamP Group gGmbH. We combine high academic standards, an organizationally efficient management structure and a profound passion for improving social shortcomings. It is our goal to evoke lasting change and to build local and international networks, which lead to sustainable social impact. To date, our best known Initiative is Boxgirls International. Using boxing as a medium, girls and young women with a variety of life experiences and from different backgrounds, are empowered to shape their lives in positive ways. RespAct is a pedagogical project with emphasis on democratic and sports-related learning. During our workshops, children learn strategies for how to improve their immediate surroundings and begin to implement changes in partnership with political figures and business representatives.
