A whirlwind week in Borneo

The day had finally arrived where 13 excitable teachers and 2 even more excitable Camps staff made their way to Heathrow Airport to travel over to Borneo for the 2016 Teacher Recce. Borneo has always been on my own personal bucket list, so to be able to share this with other like-minded people was amazing.

With permanent camps based in Borneo since 2009, Camps International volunteers have been helping to conserve the country’s natural resources and make a real difference to the lives of people in rural communities. One of our lovely travellers Joanna has recently returned from a 3-month Asia trip, spending time in our camps...
