WHAT ARE ELREHLA CAMPS?

ElRehla is a connective experience bringing people who make things happen together for a 4-day out-of-office experience!

WHAT HAPPENS IN ELREhLA?

We work to inspire and re-energize our campers as they disconnect from the day-to-day operations through an agenda that focuses on the mind, body and soul. We focus on these 5 main activity types: organized networking, business innovation, fitness & fun, relaxation and artistic expression. This format allows the group to and think of both our work more strategically and our lives more long term. During the camp both introverts and extroverts connect on deeper levels than traditional training or networking events We invite different leaders, entrepreneurs, business professionals, creatives, decision makers, doers, educators, experts, innovators and makers to apply not only to come to connect with a new community and learn from each other but also to explore our camp’s methodology used in the 4 days to then bring back your favorite tools to your work environments for more workplace happiness in your on teams Watch the video below but you can read more about the thinking behind our approach and what happens after the camp here.

FAQs

Is this camp only restricted to entrepreneurs and specific ages?

We want doers and leaders who make things happen not people who just talk about their dreams and plans. In the past camps we’ve had applicants coming from different stages from over 50 industries. So entrepreneurs, leaders, investors, mentors, artists, freelancers, intrapreneurs from any industry are all welcome! Also what makes ElRehla beautiful is the diversity in ages of those who attend so we have applicants 18 and above.

Do you provide any discounts if several members of my team apply?

Yes we provide 10% discount from each applicant if 3 members in a team apply together and are all accepted (limited spots)

Can I connect to the internet while at the camp?

ElRehla camps are low-tech events so we recommend that participants disconnect from any technology so even though there is a signal to connect we ask that you give yourself the unique experience of having a full digital detox period of 4 days that our previous campers loved about the experience.

I'm an introvert, will I be able to network?

Yes ElRehla is designed especially taking into account the needs of introverts so big group discussions are limited and most sessions are based on smaller group discussions.

I want to travel by plane not bus can you arrange this?

You would need to reserve the plane ticket yourself but we can arrange car pickup from Sharm el Sheikh airport to Nuweiba – you would pay the extra fees for this transport. Although very few campers chose this option of arriving by plane, we highly recommend you travel by bus with the rest of the group as we have an introductory activity on the bus. In all cases please note there is no discount on price if you decide to go by plane or with your car.

What is the background of people behind ElRehla?

Know more about the organizing team here. As founders we have a total of 34 years of leadership experiences in 11 organizations (Harvard School of Education, AIESEC, Global Shapers, Novartis, Namaa School for Sustainable Development, Gneh fel Youm, AlMaqarr Coworking Space, Care International, Rise Up Summit, ElMashrou3, Roteract and Vodafone). We’ve organized over 75 networking based events across the past 12 years – 25 of which were multi-day experiences – in Egypt but also in the US and UAE. But what makes ElRehla unique is our previous partners and facilitators here who have spent many years of experience in building their craft.

What Past Campers say

A connective experience bringing entrepreneurs together

“What made elRehla unique compared to other experiences was the combination of fun and business and personal aspects. A relaxing, fun, useful and eye-opening experience”

Tamer Taha, Yomken

“I am so so glad I came. I’d just been in the UK, and while I was there was honestly wondering why I was leaving it and coming back to Cairo, but ElRehla reminded why I love Egypt!”

Emily Renny, Greek Campus

“After spending the last 3.5 years in Silicon Valley,  checking-in to 379 events while there…I thought it was going to be hard to attend any event that would top all that…until I joined ElRehla! The camp takes a holistic 360 approach to entrepreneurship with activities built around the mind, body and soul of an entrepreneur”

Salma El Hariry, ScaleUp Ventures

“Want to share with you that I’m very proud and happy that for the first time since we start our community sustinable model in 2007 to meet such amazing Egyptian youth understand and share our vision of greening our desert with food. The after school learning center for community children is the pillar for health wealthy life.”

Mr Maged, Habiba Farm

“We were 80 people in 2 days we didn’t know each other and now I feel like we are a small family, in reality this doesn’t happen in such a short period of time. I wish that we take what we learnt and use the same approaches to create the same spirit even if on a smaller scale in everything that we do.”

Omar Samra, Wild Guanabana

“It’s because of your newsletter I have come to know about the ChangemakerXchange opportunity in Lisbon and now I’m there!”

Ahmed Sameh , Emmkan

“The whole experience was brilliant! I learned from the sessions and even more from the attendees, all were willing to share experience and give advice. Activities and early wake ups were really helpful and contributed to an extremely productive day”

Mahmoud Mohsen , Retyres

“I really liked the flow of the sessions, it was more crowd sourced rather than following a detailed agenda, which made things more genuine and natural”

Muhammed Darwish , Jereed

“I believe ElRehla’s main purpose is to open participants’ minds on where they should take their idea or business next. The networking was great”

Essam Maged, Unplugged

“ElRehla was the first push to launch my brand I was chosen one of the 15 best Middle East fashion designers participating in project runway Middle East, my brands name started to be one of the most well known, ethnic wear brands in Egypt”

Amna El-Shandaweely, Amna El-Shandaweely Designs

“The first time I play sports at 6am, discover how much I like simplicity, was able to channel my inner fifi abdo in a play, freestyle playing instruments and dancing on the beach, learn new and interesting things, open up to people I had just met, completely forget that my phone even existed and the list goes on and on”
