So you want to work for Camps International?
In a nutshell, we provide amazing opportunities for school and gap year students through our volunteer programs in both Africa and Asia.
These programs incorporate much needed community development and wildlife conservation projects that not only allow us to provide often life-changing* experiences to our students (*their words, not ours!), but the positive impact we make on the communities and environment we work in means the more successful we are, the greater the positive impact on the area. Our guys tell us this makes for a much happier Monday morning feeling!!
It’s not just those who work here that think we make a difference – we are the proud winners of the ‘Best Volunteer Organisation’ category at the 2008 Responsible Tourism Awards.
Still interested? Great! Why not check out our YouTube channel to see a little more about what we do, or cast an eye over the videos of our lovely staff talking about how wonderful we are (and no, we didn't bribe them to say all that!)
