Camps International trips are incredible and the best experience you will ever have. Everything is taken care of, from food to transport to clean water, so you don't get the surprise of lots of "hidden extras" or additional expenses in country, like you do with other gap year companies. Also Camps International are really focussed on completing worthwhile projects. A lot of other gap year companies start projects, like building classrooms or installing clean water, and then pack up and leave before the project is finished, leaving the community with an unusable half-built building. However because Camps International have permanent set-ups within local villages, they see things through to the end. They also employ the local people to help run their camps, so you really get to experience local life and meet people who've lived there all their lives. When you visit their camps you can really see the difference they have already made to the local communities, and it's a privilege and humbling to be able to help with whatever they're currently working on. Camps International agree with the local community leaders what the community needs most, so the projects are really worthwhile and valuable. You also get to have adventure add ons, like scuba diving or mountain trekking, so you get to experience some R&R / personal challenges as well as volunteering to help the local community and wildlife. Basically Camps International are awesome and I would definitely recommend travelling with them!!
I have just taken 59 Grade 10 students on a short trip (one week) to Cambodia with Camps International. The experience was incredibly rewarding and the students came away with a new perspective on life. We were in the city of Phnom Penh for a day at each end of the trip and the programme was great, as were facilities. We were able to incorporate plenty of educational experiences along with some fun. The rest of the time was spent in a small village in the countryside. Facilities were quite basic, but clean and safe, and my students developed an appreciation of the life locals lead. Activities organised were sometimes tough, but the camp staff made them enjoyable and meaningful. The staff were also very flexible and so incredibly helpful. We could not have chosen a better place for our students to spend a short trip and the school intends to make this an annual event. Thanks Camps International - you rock!
