Breathtaking!

Worth every single penny! My experience was life changing. I loved every second of it, the people the kids, the reps all of them were amazing! Camp Sri Lanka is an amazing way to travel and experience fantastic activities as every body else is in the same boat as you, traveling for the first time and Camp Sri Lanka provide constant 24/7 support for when ever you need it, and the reps are such a laugh to be around. For myself it was my first time traveling alone and being at Camp I made a lot of friends so it made the whole experience feel so much more organized and safer along with a friendly, awesome atmosphere, and the activities were out of this world!!!

Exceptional, once in a lifetime experience!

I had an amazing time in Sri Lanka as all the reps were very helpful and friendly, as they always went the extra mile to make the experience great. The accommodation was lovely and all the trips I took part in were excellently organised. I would go back in a heart beat.
