Fundraising Friday Star - Naomi Hooper!

Hey guys! Amazing Friday is here! Finally! Woooooooo!!!! 

A new voice for you this week -------------> Hazza!!! (that's me!) :)

I've been working for Camps for about 3 years now, since my expedition to Borneo with my school back in 2011. Basically I have now joined the fundraising team to help our volunteers raise all their cash through fundraising alone - just as I did!!

REWARDING EXPERIENCE WITH CAMPS INTERNATIONAL

It was a huge blessing to have a dedicated team of 19 pax from Avon Valley School (UK) last Month.This group spent two weeks in Tsavo doing a community project work at Sasenyi Primary School; School located in the rurals of Kenya-Tsavo Region. They got engaged on making 10 desks for 20 children who have been siting on the floor due to lack of chairs and they desperately needed desks in class.The group loved the experience in Kenya and mentioned the trip as an eye opening to them.......................................

Fundraising Friday Star - Chris Beeks

Just another manic Friday! I know the song is meant to be Monday, but oh well, I’m the master of my own destiny and I will rewrite songs if I want to!... You can tell it has been a long week can’t you? Please excuse me being slightly mad, but I guess it is no different to how everyone around the office sees me day in and day out!

Moving swiftly on, our Fundraising Friday Star today is a rather incredible one! It definitely caught my eye, and I’m sure it will catch yours too… Meet Chris, and his amazing mum Tammy!

Flagellation and Fanesca – Ecuadorian Easter traditions to remind you the holidays aren’t all about chocolate and cuddly bunnies.

There are many things that are just a little bit different in this part of the world, Easter is one of them. Many years ago, as a 16 year old in Mexico, I witnessed my first non-bonnet Easter parade. The entire 14 Stations of the Cross were reenacted, complete with the hanging of Judas played by my friend Edgar. I vividly remember watching him being strung up from the tree at our local bus-stop as women wept and the younger folk giggled and booed. As his legs dangled he winked at me, clearly trying to reassure me that this was all quite normal and safe.

Latin American Gappers Hit the Galapagos

It’s hard not to love a place where the local wild life meet you with such obvious disdain, not even blinking an eye lid as they continue to sun themselves on the backs of boats and park benches or waddle their way along the board walk. Their cavalier, ‘seen one tourist seen them all’ attitude only serves to make them more adorable and worthy of stalking for that ultimate ‘sealfie’.

A Week Without Walls on Lake Titicaca

A Week Without Walls on Lake Titicaca.

By Lily Sanchez, Project Coordinator Peru

As the students left their inner city homes bound for the airport in Montevideo none really knew what they were in for. Uruguay might look close to Peru on a map but in terms of culture and lifestyle they couldn’t be more different. Yes, technically Spanish is the official language of both countries, but up in the Andes of Peru one is equally likely to run into people whose first language is Quechua, just like the community we work with on Lake Titicaca.  

OUR MISSION WITH CAMPS INTERNATIONAL

We all thought that 3 months will be long period to be in Africa, but here we are, we've made it! We’ve enjoyed every moment of our stay with Camp Kenya, loved all projects, safari, and beach.The hospitality of the Kenyan people is incredible; friendly staff and Jambo Rafiki (Hello friend) everywhere. We feel rewarded to have fulfilled our mission to change people's lives and we can not stop sharing this amazing experience to the world...................

THE INSPIRATIONAL TRIP 2014

The inspirational trip 2014 (Part 1)

 

There are many schools traveled to Cambodia with us since we opened the camp in the late 2010. Looking at all the photos from the year 2014 that we had from each school, Round Square Schools is the most inspring one. They had 22 days and traveled through Phnom Penh, Siemreap City, and both of our camps, Beng Pae and Beng Mealea. The photos below proves their strong commitment to help the local community and their great joys in each area.
