Allianz MoveNow Camp – Global Edition

In its role as a Worldwide Olympic & Paralympic Partner, Allianz is dedicated to promoting physical activity among young individuals around the globe. Through team sports, the aim is to cultivate essential physical, mental, and social skills that will equip the next generation for the future. 

That’s why Allianz and FC Bayern München teamed up to host the first MoveNow Camp – Global Edition from August 31 - September 4, 2023. 

The participating adolescents were chosen through Allianz-hosted sports camps or events in their home countries. 30 talented young athletes traveled from 10 countries to our international sports camp in Munich, Germany, where they took part in professional athletic training in various disciplines (including mindfulness and teamwork).

To not just move their body but also their mind and soul, additional yoga and dance sessions have been offered. Highlight of every activity was the personal exchange and meet & greet with professional athletes and coaches.
