A Real Shock to the System

Team Padas from the UK spent an enlightening and challenging four weeks with us in Borneo this summer.  Here is what two of the team members shared with us during their time at Camp Tinangol.

Thanks to everyone from Team Padas for all your hard work and thank you to Peta and Ben for sharing.

Sarah's going Camps International!

So, in less than 2 weeks time I am being free'd from the office and let loose in the world with my end destination ultimately being Camp Borneo & Camp Cambodia! Which is pretty exciting right? OH YES but I also happen to be the most unorganised person in the world so this is certainly a challenge amongst all the excitement! In 2012 I was lucky enough to visit Camp Kenya & Camp Tanzania so I should be a pro at it by now you would think...

Summer School Expedition in Borneo (Part 1)

Greetings from Borneo! In the past few weeks, our amazing school expedition teams have travelled from thousands of miles away to be here and thus far each individual had various experience getting stuck in to our local community projects, travelling from Camp to Camp, learning different ways of life in various tradition and cultures, having fun with activities, adventures in the jungle and underwater, eating lots of rice and noodles and much more!

Camp Borneo's Giving 100% Pledge

The Camp Borneo team are currently snowed under with several large International School groups as well as some gappers so are somewhat busy and unable to focus fully on a day of giving.  However it doesnt mean they have forgotten about it and have made some plans for when things quieten down a bit.  here's what they're planning/pledging....

1) Camp Borneo “Camps Kitchen Recipe” Book.   The idea is to collect and compile signature dishes from all of our Camp locations, created and cooked by our staff

Visit to the Sun Bears

I am lucky that during the course of my day to day work I get to visit some great places.  And finally over the weekend I got to visit the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre at Sepilok - this is a very special place since teams from Camps have been working there on and off for the past few years, as well as it being designed and built by our friends at Arkitrek.

Eid Mubarak from everyone at Camps International!

A (belated) Eid Mubarak to all who celebrated!

We had some great celebrations in our camps around the world. Here is a photo of some of our volunteers on Eid night at Mantanani Island in Camp Borneo. We had 45 participants, fireworks, traditional dance and costumes, and a king and queen competition!
