#CampsGivingDay Ecuador 2014

We all awoke here in Ecuador to a flurry of #CampsGivingDay activities and emails (being 6 hours behind) from around the world. We all also awoke a little sluggishly and with a bit of a hangover after the Camp Ecuador fund raiser the evening before in Quito. After witnessing Damian's Irish dancing we were all a little jaded and we set off on an early morning journey to a school near Camp Kuri Kuchu.

29th November Camps International Challenge Day

Sponsoring challenges is something that we are used to in Britain, and possible Dubai.  However, over here in Latin America they have pretty much never heard of the idea and I think it is much the same in the other territories.  We can do the challenges, but we need to raise the money for it back in Blighty.

29th November is the date.  Andrea, our Projects Leader and Camp Manager of Camp Kuri Kuchu, and Edu, our Camps Leader and Camp Manager of Camp Maqui, will be summiting Chimborazo.  

Galapagos Islands, a unique wonder in the whole world

Hola Mundo

There is a proverb that says better late than ever, so here I would like to share a special recce to the Galapagos, with Amy Force, a great colleague that came to Ecuador for the first time ever, long time ago with Damian our Director, to find all the great camps in the country.

Now, this was her chance to finally see the Galapagos, a unique amazing place in the world. I always say I could live there with all the wildlife as a neighbor and the torquoise water of the ocean but of course dreams cost nothing.
