Camp Thailand 

Camp Volunteering in Thailand


The most Innovative Learning Camps in Southeast Asia

Young campers learn together with volunteers. 

Learning by Doing!
Our campers become curios, build confidence and learn to use  critical thinking while learning about the world and improving their English and IT skills.
They learn together, find out about important issues like food and health by searching online, share, discuss, presnt to eachother and debate; good or bad aspects.
To learn to learn and that it is fun to learn is our aim!

Watch camper memories from a  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 the disadvantaged young from Burma, Laos, Thailand and Cambodia

What we do at our Camps

We learn in teams, volunteers, our people and campers. They get tasks, to find out about the world, health, environment using English, computers and Internet. We discuss, use games, shows, encourage teamwork and critical thinking.Volunteers work with small groups at our camps.
