Travelling in the New 2021/2022 Academic Year

Thank you for the continued patience and support from those of you on a planned or planning a school expedition with us in the next academic year.

As you will know, it is an extremely challenging time for our schools, and we are sympathetic to the fact that real concerns exist. We have been working globally with schools to collaborate on options to relieve uncertainty and reduce pressure of finances in advance of any travel advisories, restrictive or unrestrictive, which may or may not come into force.

We would like to reassure you, we understand that travel has become more complex and we are constantly reviewing the latest Government travel and the Ministry of Education and security advice for student travel. We will only travel to destinations deemed safe by Government authorities. For clarity, if nearer the time of travel the Government and Ministry of Education advice constrains us from travelling, we will be in immediate touch with the school regarding the next course of action for any travellers confirmed on a booking.

We recognise there are still many obstacles to overcome and that the current restrictions pose additional challenges for many of our travellers. In the meantime, we continue to take all measures needed to ensure that Camps is able to continue operating and deliver exceptional experiences the moment restrictions ease. The impact to our team has of course been harsh as we have operated very much as a family for the past 20 years. We have pledged to re employ any people we have lost immediately as travel recovers. The impact to our project partners around the world is also undeniably severe in cases and the current crisis illustrates how significant a role responsible travel plays in sustainable development.

As we look to the future, new trips can now be booked for later this year and beyond and our crew is already busy with schools organising these expeditions. We are introducing a wide range of new options across all travel seasons to ensure as many people as possible get to experience the life-changing travel opportunities they’ve missed out on for over a year.

If you are looking to secure travel dates in the new academic year or simply have concerns about future travel, our friendly and expert Expeditions Team are available on to assist you.
