Lauren, one of our Camps Ambassador crew, recounts her favourite things about her trip to Africa with Camps International. Check out her top 5 below.
After having the experience of a lifetime in Kenya and Tanzania with Camps International in 2015, I’d like to share my top 5 favourite things about the trip and travelling with Camps in general:
ONE: Getting to see first hand the ways that your money helps, and getting to work with the people themselves to help them improve their communities.
TWO: The guarantee that Camps International provides jobs for local people, and the projects you work on are ones that are chosen and led by the people they affect.
THREE: Fundraising for and organising the trip, as well as the trip itself, shows drive, organisation and a passion for helping others – skills that are really desirable for future employers.
FOUR: Working on projects in the community, conservation, wildlife management, and infrastructure meant that we got a range of experience and learned a variety of practical skills.
FIVE: Living in some of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been, and getting to enjoy it all with a group who became great friends.
