Who are Camps International?

As the experts in ethical school expeditions, we make it easy for teachers to provide their students with the life-changing benefits of educational and meaningful travel. We are dedicated to providing the most impactful school expeditions out there – creating the best experiences for students whilst making the most positive impact on the planet.

All of this is delivered through our unique social enterprise model of locally built and staffed camps, purpose built for school groups in some of the world’s most culturally and environmentally diverse locations.

Connecting your classroom with the wider world

At Camps, we understand that education is something that happens both in the classroom and in the real world. That’s why we have developed an educational programme of activity as part of your school’s journey, that seamlessly blends classroom teaching materials with the experiential learning on expedition.

This allows a student to gain a deeper understanding of the issues that face the communities in which we have camps, engaging them with key global issues and empowering them to contribute to change.

Why World Class Schools choose us

We work with over 900 schools from more than 30 countries – including many schools in the World Class Schools Network – to launch successful expeditions around the world. With a proven track record of quality and safety, you can rest assured we’ll create an unforgettable experience for your school team.

Schools choose us because we’re not like other school expedition providers. As a social enterprise, we are driven by our strong sense of purpose, which forms our foundation and determines every aspect of the way we operate.

We invest in building permanent camps in the heart of the places we care about. We commit to the highest standards of responsible tourism throughout all our operations. We work in partnership with local communities and employ a fantastically diverse team of passionate staff around the globe.

Most importantly, we put purpose before profit, always. We call this the Camps Effect and it is the engine that drives our positive impact – for the young people who travel with us and for the planet.

“Rushcliffe school has been working with CAMPS international for 10 years, in that time students have been on expeditions to locations such as Borneo, Ecuador, Kenya and Peru. The benefits to students attending the trips has been immense – teamwork, perseverance, resilience and effort not only form key parts of the expedition itself but are also vital skills in the preparation (when students are raising significant sums of money to finance their adventure).  Whilst in-country students are exposed to a huge variety of different cultures, conservation work and ‘once in a lifetime’ experiences again building on and developing  core life skills. I would definitely recommend a CAMPS trip and am really hoping we get to travel this summer.”  Mr Robin Woodward, Rushcliffe School
