Camps international made our DOE trip to Kenya absolutely amazing. all the way from the wonderful welcome we got and the stay in Camp Tsavo, down to the delicious food they made for us. They had given us so much background on their culture and traditions in Kenya, even a professor could not beat them. Overall, it was a mind-blowing experience and I would most definitely go there again.

The building of character, resilience, confidence and empathy is only the tip of the iceberg when travelling with Camps. I’ve led 10 expeditions to date and have the privilege of witnessing these developments within students each and every time they travel with us. Going on expedition is a valuable opportunity for individuals where they create positive impact and undoubtedly grow as a young person, make the most incredible memories and have stories to talk about for years. And if you think this isn’t for you – it’s you who will gain the most.
