About

Camp Colombia is a fascinating program, set in a beautiful location with volunteering on the island of Tierra Bomba! Volunteers get the change to get really hands on with the local community and get involved with teaching english, sports and water activities and helping develop the local community. It's really varied and no day is the same.

Colombia

Camp Colombia is based in Cartagena de Indias , which is a Unesco World Heritage site and  on the island of Tierra Bomba. Located in the Caribbean Sea, it's a beautiful spot with a sunny climate, happy people and stunning views. It's hard not to fall in love with it at first sight,  which is why it's known as one of the most romantic cities in the world. It's known for it's sports, festivals, arts, beauty, glorious beaches and stunning culture, there's something for everyone.

Volunteering

Teaching English, water sports, arts and crafts, community development.

The Experience

The actual volunteering takes place on an island near by Cartagena, called "Tierra Bomba," a tiny yet very poor island only 15 minutes by boat. The main industries on the Island are fishing or tourism, both of which are seasonal, meaning the locals struggle to earn year round. Camp Colombia organises many activities to help the children in the area, such as; teaching English, coaching sports, water sport activity programs, beach clean ups, organising dance talent shows. Basically you can get involved with anything that will contribute on the Island and it's such a rewarding experience as it's a chance for you to get really hands on with the local children and community.      

Itinerary

Each day is different meaning you can get involved in a variety of activities. Camp Colombia runs out of a water sports centre on the Island which is where everything is organised each morning. The average day is usually four hours work then you have the rest of the day to relax and enjoy all the things on offer in the local area.
