You’re invited to a party in paradise!

A sun-laden haven set in the tropics of the Western Pacific; Camp Castaway Philippines is arguably our most exclusive Camp, with just sixty places available in this Camp splitting at the seams with sunshine and beauty.

Partake in initiatives within the local community and contribute to the maintenance of this sublime section of SouthEast Asia. During your time in the Philippines, teach English to local children in an effort to enhance their future prospects; young children currently have no access to a high-quality education and we like to do what we can to contribute wherever possible.

Leave the tourist trail behind and unearth the exquisite underbelly of the Philippines, with wonderful wildlife and stunning sea life sprinkled in amongst the terrain.

With a free-flowing itinerary in operation, this enhances the experience of our applicants, with activities planned around daily circumstances – rain rears its head? No problem! We’ll head to the mainland for a day of activities. Conversely, when the sun shines, we’ll embark on a fully-fledged castaway experience!
