Challenge your view of the world

As a global social enterprise, we connect you with the real world and real people. The result? Incredible expeditions that create a lasting positive impact – for our travellers and for the planet.

Life-changing expeditions in four continents

Experience authentic culture and environmental diversity in our unique network of permanent camps – built and staffed by local people and based right in the heart of amazing communities.

Why choose Camps?

We’re not like other school expedition providers. As a social enterprise, we are driven by our strong sense of purpose, which forms our foundation and determines every aspect of the way we operate.

We invest in building permanent camps in the heart of the places we care about. We commit to the highest standards of responsible tourism throughout all our operations. We work in partnership with local communities and employ a fantastically diverse team of passionate staff around the globe.

Most importantly, we put purpose before profit, always. We call this the Camps Effect and it is the engine that drives our positive impact – for the young people who travel with us and for the planet.

About us

Free teaching resources linked to global issues

Our approach is grounded in the principle that the education of young people is one that takes place both in a classroom and the real world. The global pandemic challenged this and from this point Real World Studies was born. A growing blended learning programme made up of over 150 free educational resources, it provides the unique ability for both teachers and students to connect with our in-country Camps teams to discuss global issues.

The educational resources are structured in such a way that they can be used either as a coherent programme of learning in themselves, or as a means of developing knowledge before future travel.
Created by a community of teachers and Camps’ local project experts, our materials and activities use Design Thinking methodology and link to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, giving students the tools to go on and create the world that they want to live in.
