Both leaders were fantastic; calm, professional and approachable throughout. Felt safe driving around in a huge truck and with locals at all times. The camp itself and staff are very organised. The food provided each day was like a restaurant meal! Way above my expectations. The activities through the week were varied and entertaining. I am looking forward to facing my fears once again, and this time bringing students with me!
