Hazza's A Fundraising Friday Star!

Today is a Happy Friday!

But also a rather sad one, as it is my last Friday in the Camps HQ office, before I head off for a brand new venture.

I thought this week I would write my own Fundraising Friday Star blog, as I was a student at a school near our office back in 2011, when I fundraised the entire amount of my expedition cost and travelled out to Borneo!!

For everyone currently fundraising for a Camps expedition, this is how I did it…


Fundraising Friday Star - Musician Lawrence!


Happy Friday doesn’t even do today justice! It has been a long week and an enjoyable week but we are certainly glad it’s Happy Friday time.

This week’s Fundraising Friday Star is a chap called Lawrence and he is quite simply a legend.

Read on to hear about how he has got himself to Ecuador this Summer…



I'm going to Ecuador this summer and decided to share my fundraising story with you all. I have raised all of my money now purely by fundraising!

Fundraising Friday Star - Vicky!

The sun is shining - and it's Friday! Wooooooooo!!

Ever thought it possible to raise 1/4 of your expedition cost in just 3 DAYS?!

Without further ado... CONGRATULATIONS VICKY!!!!!


My name is Vicky and I am travelling to Peru in the summer of 2016 with Camps International. I found out about this amazing and once in a lifetime opportunity through my school only a couple of weeks ago!

June 2015 - Gap in Peru

We welcomed our June gappers into Peru recently and they have got off to a great start on our community projects, and had a lot of fun in the process. They started work in Cusco, plastering the wall that our last group of gappers built.  They will now go back and paint a mural to create a better living environment, as well as a much safer home, for the children within the orphanage.



After a long time travelling, we finally arrived at Nairobi and were welcomed by the Camps International Staff. The contrast between our world and the African world is indescribable. One of the first things we saw were giraffes at the side of the road; we were speechless.

When we arrived at camp after a 7 hour trip, had a good night sleep and admired the amazing starry sky, we went through a very interesting orientation.

Friday Farewell!

It feels like the end of an era… but also, I've had a lot of sugar, so it is becoming increasingly difficult to concentrate! One sentence into this blog and I am already seriously distracted! Sorry guys, right, lets try again. I have some sad news; today is my very last day in the office

Hummingbirds, Paddington Bears and Butterflies – An IB Geography trip to the Cloud Forest

One of the great things about working with local schools in-country is being able to share with them elements of their own country they never knew before. Here in Ecuador, the International Baccalaureate has become very popular within both private and public schools. More and more students are undertaking CAS (Community Action Service) projects and studying subjects such as Biology and Geography that require extensive fieldwork – out in the real world.
