Looking for paradise? Here it is…
Voted the WORLD’S Best Island 3 years running, Palawan is now the home of Camp Castaway Philippines. Known for being an untouched paradise, this really is an adventurers playground! This ultimate Camp experience takes you to Cebu and Palawan, exploring some of the best places the Philippines has to offer.
For part of your trip you’ll stay on a “The Island” in the North East Palawan, near El Nido. Accessible only by boat, you’ll stay in camping style accommodation, with your very own private beach. Surrounded by palm trees, white sand, clear blue water, coral reefs and fish, this really is your own mini private paradise.
With coral reefs right opposite the beach, hammocks, a sunken boat shipwreck, kayaking, the wonders of the ocean are there to explore at your leisure!
If that’s not enough, when back on the mainland in Palawan and Cebu, we visit waterfalls and one of the New Seven Wonders of The World, Sabang Underground River. Get stuck into Island Hopping, kayaking and make a difference to local communities while helping with coral restoration.
If you’re looking to get off the tourist trail, visit untouched beaches and waterfalls and even stay on your own remote island with private beach, surrounded by coral reef, this is your chance!

Are you ready to embark on the summer experience of a lifetime? Come and discover the adventure of Camp Cambodia!
Why Camp Cambodia?
Known as ‘the Land of Smiles’ Cambodia is famous for its happy, kind and heart-warming people. We have so many fun activities lined up for you to enjoy; one of Camp Cambodia’s main draws is the chance to visit Angkor Wat, the Unesco World Heritage site and one of the Seven Wonders of the World – this is one of the largest religious sites in the world and is truly magnificent. You will also get to experience an ancient way of life by visiting the floating villages by boat on Tonle Sap Lake. Don’t forget a visit to see the local monks, lotus flower farms, night markets, a silk village, majestic waterfalls and the historical site of the Killing Fields.
It’s not just sightseeing which is a major draw, though. Cambodian cuisine is definitely not to be missed, so be sure to indulge in the local food and nightlife whilst you’re there! As well as this, Siem Reap is popular for the infamous ‘Pub Street’, where you will get to enjoy the best bars and clubs in Cambodia.
Make a difference with Camp Cambodia
We’ll be visiting school after school, helping as many children as possible. Our summer camps provide free language classes, visiting primary schools, high schools and orphanages. We engage each child by making everything fun and interactive, using games, activities, songs and sports. This can really make a difference to each child, as a lot of their future employment opportunities will be within tourism.
You will also have the chance to get up close and personal with Cambodia’s elephants, with a visit to the local elephant village! Unfortunately, much of the vegetation in areas surrounding Siem Reap has been destroyed, which as a result is affecting the lives of many of Cambodia’s elephants. We will be helping in every way possible to protect and conserve these beautiful creatures.

Always wanted to volunteer in South Africa? Always dreamed of experiencing a Safari?
Look no further…
Camp South Africa is a volunteer programme offering the incredible opportunity to really make a difference in disadvantaged communities through coaching sports or teaching a range of different subjects to children in schools in South Africa.
Sport as a normal part of the school week may be something that we take for granted here in the UK, but is not a normality for these children. By bringing sport to schools in South Africa, not only does it give these children a break from the monotony of the classroom and a chance to freely enjoy themselves within a safe environment, but it encourages their confidence to grow and teaches them skills that open brand new doors to opportunity in their further education.
Here at Camp South Africa we want to support the movement to help make sport a normal part of every child’s curriculum, no matter what type of school they attend or their geographical location. There is no greater feeling than seeing one of the children you have been coaching getting selected for a scholarship at a high level secondary school thanks to your support.; you really can go home knowing you have truly made a difference in a child’s life.
What Does It Involve?
We offer applicants the chance to join us in this incredible country and coach sports. Applicants will be working in schools from Monday to Friday, coaching, organising tournaments, and even teaching children how to play in teams and get everyone involved in the game. Applicants play a direct role in helping a child be selected for the Junior School of Excellence programme, which is run entirely by the amazing partner charity we support down in Port Elizabeth. You can even bring your own equipment from home; anything that you think will make these sessions even more enjoyable.
Not too sporty? We always need volunteers to help teach English and Maths in the schools. There is even the chance to get involved in other subjects such as Drama, Geography or any other specialist subject you have experience in, meaning you can bring even more skills and experience to the classroom!
So, if you want to do something truly inspiring that will leave an ever lasting affect on the people of South Africa in an outstanding location, then add Camp South Africa to your bucket list now – you will not regret it!
