Last year we had a great team of Gappers in Kidia Camp-Tanzania who worked solidly to build a house of a 69yrs old Papa who had been staying in a dilapidated house for over 10yrs. The old Man had spent a lot of money to treat her wife who had been suffering from mental disability for 15yrs without success and he could not afford anymore to supply finances for his house refurbishment. This is what the team had to share…………….

Meet Phil, who although is well travelled himself is relatively new to Camps International. October half term was the first time he had visited our Camps in Tanzania and Kenya – over to him…
Wow!! What a trip!
As a newcomer to Camps, I was in the same position as the accompanying teachers, wondering what the Recce had in store for us in Africa! Everything was packed, itineraries completed and what an action packed adventure it would be!
Hi all, my name is Emma and I work on the Expeditions team for Camps International. This October I got the opportunity to go to Kenya and Tanzania on the Teacher’s recce.
Throughout the course of the week, we visited several camps, local projects and communities. We landed in Tanzania at 9am, after flying through the night (and having several plane breakfasts!). Whilst there we visited Camp Mbokomu, Camp Kidia and spent two days at Camp Tanga (our beach camp – the views are absolutely stunning!).
The summer started off with us moving into a new camp, Fish Eagle Point, situated outside of Tanga in a beautifully remote area with its own private beaches and mangrove forest.
Whilst being students at Bournemouth University we have possessed a wonderful experience, full of unforgettable memories. We all feel like our sport knowledge and skills have been well utilized. We feel rewarded for the work that we have done to this little world. There’s nothing more self-fulfilling than making a difference and changing someone’s life forever. Our sport development mission in Tanzania is complete, however, no one feels like leaving……..……..
As we write this post, our fantastic team is sitting on the beach with the camp fire going under the stars. We can hear them laughing and recapping some of the highlights of the trip so far, and what a trip it has been!
We have made a fantastic start to our project work in Tanzania. After meeting for the first time at Heathrow airport just over a week ago, the group of twenty students from four schools have quickly become united as one team.
Our trip to Tanzania has been incredible, satisfying, as we have had a great experience while helping the community
We started with construction of a new classroom foundation at Mbokomu School then moved to Kidia where we learned to Control; soil erosion by use of recycled sulfate empty sacks filled with sand.
