Who hasn’t dreamed of leaving reality behind and living the laid-back island life?

Camp Maldives is the perfect way to experience the island lifestyle in one of the most tranquil hotspots in the world…

Set in amongst serene surroundings, nestled in a heavenly hub within the Indian Ocean, Camp Maldives participants are treated to a unique, fresh experience, encircled by warm, tropical seas. A tropical retreat into escapism, Camp Maldives is the ideal opportunity to help and support local communities with an avid appetite for education; the program is the crème de la crème for tutors of English language and conservation enthusiasts.

We support the local schools and communities by running language classes, workshops, sports schools, reforestation projects and coral restoration projects– there’s never a dull moment for those keen to make a real difference.

During down time, we run snorkeling trips, island tours, beach BBQ’s and even trips to sandbanks.

So, if you’re on the hunt for a sunbaked cocktail comprising Pacific adventure and charitable work, look no further – you’re bound to fall head over heels in love with the mystique and beauty of the Maldives.

With our reps transferring you and other camp participants to your hotel at multiple points during the day you will have some time to walk around and visit the city while waiting for everyone to arrive.

In the evening head out with a local guide for a delicious welcome meal all while meeting your new friends who you will be sharing the next 3 weeks with while being on this exciting adventure.

Day 5 – 6: Social program at the school, teaching English

Arguably the most fulfilling experience you will have while on our programme will be teaching English in Maldivian schools. The idea of leaving the destination in a better position than it was prior to our arrival is key to us, one of the ways we try to benefit and help the local community.

Day 7 – 8: House Reef & Clean up

House reefs are coral reefs that are found extremely near to the shoreline, making them easily accessible even for beginner snorkelers, easily swim through the reefs enjoying the beauty of this sadly endangered eco-system. We will also be participating in cleanups, as previously mentioned we want to benefit the country allowing us to visit their stunning destinations. Other than teaching clean ups is another way we do this, trying to do our part with aiding against the pollution of our oceans caused by plastic.
