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
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.
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!
