Camps was founded in 2002 by Stuart Rees Jones in Ringwood (United Kingdom), with their first project location in Kenya. Over the past two decades, Camps International has collaborated with over 1,000 schools and impacted the lives of more than 50,000 young people.

Through their efforts, they have created and enhanced essential infrastructure while bringing real-world issues into the classroom through its educational programme, ‘Real World Studies‘. The social enterprise’s focus have also widened during this period, to food and water conservation, wildlife conservation, and housing and welfare within underdeveloped and vulnerable communities around the world.

Our group provides educational travel to deliver positive experiences through personal growth and individual transformation. This is underpinned by a mix of cultural and environmentally sustainable education, service learning and personal challenge.

Rees Jones added about the recent news, “Joining the Impact Travel Groups will support Camps to inform and inspire more students globally and to provide a greater menu of quality programmes for our students and alumni. We are an organisation truly dedicated to our mission and every single member of our staff have been involved in the Impact Travel Group merger.”

Stuart Rees Jones will step into the Impact Travel Group as CEO.  The group is focused on expanding their market and focusing on specific growth in non-traditional destinations as well as the expansion of programmes which are inclusive and accessible to a larger and broader generation of meaningful travellers.
