Volunteering Abroad Programmes - Camps International 

We all know that the world faces huge challenges, but together we can make a real difference. At Camps International we believe that by working together with local communities across the globe we can find the best way to effect positive change.

We’re not about hand-outs or flying in and out when we feel like it – we’re committed to change through action.

Here’s your chance to be part of something very special. Join one of our unique volunteer abroad programmes and work with us and our communities around the world to transform lives – including your own.

Whether you’re looking to embark on a gap year trip before, during or after university, take a few weeks away from work but avoid the package holiday crowds, go on a once in a lifetime adventure with your family or use your vocational skills to make a difference, check out our volunteer programme options to find your perfect fit.

We hope you choose to make your mark in the world with us.
