Camps International Blog - kenya


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 week was fully loaded with plastering and playing with Kids, just like any other week, we enjoyed walking and working along with local children. Plastering the Muhaka Islamic school library, has been our main project and glad we can see it getting better every day. Indeed, it is a hard and challenging task (understanding the ratio between sand and cement then mixing with water and sticky it on the wall) each day we find our self-getting stronger and we always meet the project target set for the day.


Thinking about our life with Camps since we arrived on January at Camp Tsavo, every one of us admits that Kenya is a lovely country, very friendly and incredible people and what Camps does for the communities, is absolutely great.

 Our work to complete the long drop toilet has continued a little bit slower than we first thought it would be, but it has been immensely satisfying to see the whole structure fit together.

A guide to biodiversity project work

So I know I usually write the silliest blogs ever, but I'm not quite the air head I seem to be(!). Camps International means a lot to me, not just because of the incredible people I work with, or the beautiful places we visit. Camps International is not a company that plans holidays, what we do is create expeditions, which in turn create opportunities for people to grow and learn things they may otherwise not get the chance to. It takes a long time, and a lot of planning, and that is just the logistics of getting volunteers to the country they want to go to.


Well, It's a New Year ,New Gappers in Our New Camp, all pleasantly enjoying the Camp Tsavo incredible environment and the services from our friendly staff. The group has been working solidly on a new boys toilet block in one of the local schools close to our Camp.They are all having a fantastic moment and this is what they have to share..............

2014 Healthcare Outreach Program - Camps International brings free services to the rural disputed Marungu Community Kenya

We’ve just come back from a busy two weeks healthcare outreach program feeling strong and rewarded after a very successful mission to break the cycle of poverty through  free healthcare services in the highly ‘challenged’ community of Marungu Hill and its environs.

Unlike other previous clinic outreaches where we have been always based on Msambweni County (Kenya Coast) this year our program took new direction to face the reality and help improve the lives of adults and malnourished children in the rural of Taita-Taveta County.
