What we don’t do
Why Choose Camps International?
For most people, an expedition like this is a ‘once in a lifetime’ kind of deal. That’s why we work so hard to make our experiences unique. When you join us, you get all of us. Camps International runs all of our own trips and projects and we take care of everything, offering you support before, during and after your experience so that every single detail is covered.
We operate across four continents and share a common goal: solving global problems on a local scale. We embed ourselves at the heart of local communities. We are part of their culture, and as a result, we get to work with some of the most interesting, exciting and innovative people in turning their entrepreneurial ideas into reality in some of the world’s most exciting emerging markets.
Unrivalled Safety Procedures
This is the most important aspect of your expedition and something we take very seriously. Unlike most UK expedition companies, our operations team consisting of over 100 staff are mainly located where you are, in the expedition destination, as well as our team in UK. This means we are on hand to prevent and deal with incidents rather than just react to them from afar and we have professional and experienced staff to provide a fully supported expedition round the clock.
Through experience, we at Camps International know where the dangers and pitfalls are, and as a result of thorough risk assessments and constant awareness we do all that is possible to keep you safe and well.
Camps International has achieved a lot since 2002
Real Solutions For The Real World
At Camps International, we believe in working together hand-in-hand with local communities across the globe to find more effective ways to do things. And we’re in it for the long haul, meaning that the projects you do with us will continue to benefit and transform the communities we work with long after your flight home. That’s our promise.
You’re in the hands of the community you live in. You will work collaboratively with them on projects that are based on what they believe needs doing. So one thing is for sure, your work will be purposeful and make maximum impact.
