I feel more confident and this trip has reassured me in my journey to becoming an adult. I now feel like I have – or at least I am developing – the essential qualities which make a successful person.

Mary, Camp Cambodia

My experiences have changed my outlook on life and helped to shape the person I am today. I have learnt a lot about myself and about parts of the world I had never thought twice about, as well as forming friendships that I know will last a lifetime.

Amy, Camp Tanzania and Camp Borneo

I spent a month in Cambodia as a leading member of school staff. I returned to school with a group of 21 pupils, who had turned into confident, mature young adults following they experiences. Every single one of them would say that it was the best month of their lives. I cannot recommend Camps International highly enough, not only for the excellent organisation, but for the lasting legacies they are leaving in the countries they are working with.
