MENGO Green Hunt

Earlier this year, Camp Borneo was selected to join MENGO (Malaysian Environmental NGO’s) which was a great accomplishment as the first non-NGO to be admited to the organisation.  Their goal is as follows: 

MENGO aspires towards an ecologically-sound, transparent, participatory and socially just society, through sustainable development policies and practices related to natural resources management and biodiversity conservation.

And the winners are....

And the winners are…


This year for the first time, Camp Ecuador ran an internal photo competition for our volunteers over team season. We chose three separate categories that we hoped would bring out the best in our budding photographers, ‘Funniest’, ‘Inspiring’ and ‘What Camps is All About’. After receiving many entries and deliberating over countless cups of caffeine in the office we have decided on the winners.

Before we announce them, we’d like to show you some of our favourites that didn’t quite make the cut.

Fundraising Friday Star - Chelsea

Even though our Fundraising Guru Sophie is off sunning herself somewhere for a well deserved break, she still managed to send me strict instructions for today...that's's Friday, so it is time to feature our next star!


The Sports Development Expedition 2014 (SDX) in Tanzania was incredible one and everyone from the team enjoyed all aspect of the trip. Just before saying bye, they had something to share.....

Our trip has been incredible. A highlight of the week was handing over a whole team’s football kit and equipment to Bala, the village’s youth team coach.

Fundraising Friday Star- Chloe

It’s been another busy week, and it’s Friday, which means my brain has stopped working! Luckily, I didn’t even have to think twice about this weeks star!

Chloe is a recognized blogger, which is great considering my brain is having a nap. If you guys could give me a call in the office and catch me up with your fundraising to distract me, that would be great! For now I’ll leave it up to Chloe to tell us a bit about her fundraising:


Fundraising Friday Star - Emily

So, I know all you guys probably think I must only come into work on Fridays to post a Fundraising Friday Star, and the rest of the time just dance around the office. Although I do a lot of dancing and singing around the office, I am here all week on the phone with you guys helping you with fundraising. I am seriously here to help, and to listen to your problems… even if you just can’t decide what A levels to do!

A Real Shock to the System
