While this my seem somewhat cliched, Camp Maldives was truly a life changing experience for me.
Previously, I have done a fair bit of travelling, however, never before have I experienced anything like Camp Maldives; the program enables you to see the 5* luxury commonly associated with the Maldives, as well as the local communities – for me, these were even more beautiful than the more popular locations!
The leaders of the Camp couldn’t do enough for you. They are so kind, caring and generous and will try their best to fill the Camp’s rota with not just volunteering but many excursions to other islands, snorkelling spots and sand banks. The whole community on the local island are very kind and are more than happy to have you there, help you and answer any questions about their life.
I came back from the Maldives with a bigger heart than ever, I MUST go back!
My first experience of the Maldives was incredible and it’s all down to Camp Maldives!
When arriving onto the island we got the best welcome with coconuts and warm faces. The accommodation was great and included everything you would need for a comfortable stay!
The schedule during my time on the program was very full of the most beautiful snorkeling I’ve ever seen: I enjoyed amazing trips to a sand bank, uninhabited island and played volleyball and football in what can only be described as paradise!
Teaching the kids English was the best part of my experience. It was extremely rewarding seeing them grow in confidence and getting to know about them and their futures and the different cultures.
Last but not least, I loved spending time with the guys that were helping us around the island! They are the most genuine and kind people I think I’ve ever met and this made my experience the best I’ve ever had! The Maldives have stolen my heart and I will be back very soon to continue my experience and make more memories.
