Camp Thailand

Don't miss your chance to volunteer in our famous Learning Camps

Every April and October, now also November

Camper Soui from Laos: '‘We searched the internet, about the world. We discussed, learned another way - to learn English, to find information, think and to debate!’


Active Learning Camps

Young campers from Thailand, Laos, Myanmar (Burma) and Cambodia learn together with us and our overseas and local volunteers. Village children have limited chances to learn, poor schools, poor parents.

Learning Camps the Openmind Style

Learning by doing. Our camps are especially designed for multi- and activity learning! To boost curiosity, confidence, thinking and learning skills, English and IT skills. Learn and use new skills immediately to learn something else!

Campers learn together. They get a task (find out about good food, good health), to search for information online, to share, discuss, evaluate and debate, what is good and what is bad.

They learn many things in one activity! It is fun to learn, to find out, in our camps!

Watch Memories from our first 2016 camp, 

Camper Wah Wah from Burma: ’The debates make me more confident. I learn English by searching, discussing, not by heart! First the volunteers teach me and then we have to search and find information and discuss with our friends before we present the information.’

We Help Volunteers Before the Camp

We send you Handbooks before you travel. You come for our free Volunteer Training.  We have fun and  work together to prepare for the camp. You add your  ideas! We work together.

What Volunteers Do During the Camp

We focus on English, computers/Internet, the world, environment, health, food. We use games, role-plays, shows, encourage teamwork, critical thinking. We work together: campers, volunteers staff and trainees.Volunteers work with small groups at our camps.


We organize free holiday camps for village children from Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Burma, at our Training Center in Thailand, mainly in April, October holiday months.

New Camps in November

And now we plan for Camps near Burma/Myanmar and also Mobile Mini Camps for poor village schools whose children cannot come to our Center. Ask us for our plans!

Volunteer in North or South Thailand 4: The Verdict
Volunteer Stories
This is the last post in a four part series comparing the volunteer experience in Nong Khai and Krabi, our two main bases in Thailand, written by Andy from the UK. He attended the Volunteer & Cross Cultural Training in Nong Khai and then stayed for around six weeks teaching at Hat Kam School. He then headed down south, where he has now spent twelve weeks so far, teaching at Ban Nong Kok School among others. So, which is best...? They both are! It isn't a case of one location ...
My last days at Openminds. For this time.
Volunteer Stories
After a year of travelling, spending around five months with Openminds I am sad to say that this adventure of mine has come to an end. On Friday I’m flying down to Bangkok and on Sunday I’ll be flying home to Sweden. I’ve had the best time and gained so much experience during my time here and I’ll definitely be back as soon as I can. I’ve mainly been working at the Training Centre in Nong Khai in northeastern Thailand and the staff and trainees here have become my second family. I’ve been teachi...
An inspiring 'family' in Nepal: Helpless Upliftment Centre, Kathmandu
Volunteer Stories
  I had the privilege to stay for a number of weeks with a lovely group of kids who live at the HUC orphanage under the care of an inspiring young man, Bhakta and his wife, Bimala.  More of a large family than an orphanage, HUC was founded about 10 years ago to provide a home for these 10 children orphaned by the Maoist conflicts in western Nepal. Bhakta and Bimala are like parents to the kids (6 boys and 4 girls) who are nearly all teenagers now, mostly between 14 -16 years old.&n...
Thai hospitals and Lao jungles
Volunteer Stories
Two members of staff, Joiy and Anna, went to visit two new projects we now support: the Samrong Hospital & Secondary School in Ubon Ratchathani province and Tree Top Explorer near Pakse in Laos. They met with the project organizers and are happy to recommend both these projects to new volunteers. This is their account of the trip. The first project we went to visit was a hospital based in Samrong district near Ubon Ratchathani. After a day-long bus journey and spending t...
