At Camps International we are passionate about enabling real change, here in the UK and across Africa, Asia and South America.
We are an award-winning school expedition provider with nearly 15 years experience in delivering amazing life-changing trips for students in schools and colleges.
As a social enterprise, making a real difference to the lives of the people we work with in rural communities and the lives of our volunteers is at the heart of what we do.
We truly deliver amazing expeditions that open your eyes, test your boundaries, help to build confidence and enable you to understand the difference just one person, working in one team can make.
At any one time we have over 100 projects running across 10 different countries. These projects are created together with the local people within the communities in which we work.
We believe in partnerships – it’s essential to us that we only provide projects that will make a real and sustainable difference to the lives of these communities, not only now, but for the future.
We build classrooms, we install water supplies in to communities with no running water, we build medical centres, we construct safe and secure housing, we plant trees to combat deforestation, we dig watering holes to protect endangered wildlife and we install special fencing to protect wildlife from coming into conflict with local farmers.
How can you benefit?
Student volunteers: Our expeditions help to open your eyes to an amazing world. You’ll see incredible sights, meet inspiring people, learn about a new culture and live alongside the communities you are helping. You’ll relax at the end of every day knowing you’ve done a fantastic job and helped move a project forward that will help a few, hundreds or even thousands of people for years to come.
You’ll have an amazing experience to put on your CV, in job applications and for personal statements when applying for uni. It’ll help you to stand out and showcase the kind of person you are.
You’ll put lots of skills into practice – team working, communication, problem solving to mention just a few.
During your expedition you will meet the most incredible people, make friendships you treasure and create memories you’ll never forget. It really is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Teachers: There is nothing better from a teachers’ point of view than giving your students the opportunity to change their lives. To see what they are truly capable of, to help shape what they’ll go on to do, to test their skills, grow in confidence and explore the amazing world in which we live.
You’ll also be there every step of the way. You’ll get the chance to explore a new country, take on an adventure and have a very exciting opportunity for your own personal development.
It’s a very exciting opportunity for every school to engage with their local communities, involve parents and inspire their whole school to do something truly amazing.
