Summer Camp Thailand Reviews
Here’s my contribution to the Summer Camp Thailand Reviews – enjoy!
During this summer, I spent 2 months at Camp Thailand – one month at Camp A and another month at Camp B! It was 2 months extremely well spent: I got to bath elephants, go quad-biking, visit temples and even learn a little bit of Thai! I also tried all of the tasty Thai food, which was right up my street – make sure you try Pad Thai, this was my personal favourite!
After a couple nights experiencing the hustle and bustle in Bangkok, we headed out to Camp for the next 3 weeks! Everyone was so excited and looking forward to settling into our new little Thai home for the next couple weeks.
Visiting Suan Phueng was undoubtedly my highlight of my first month at Camp A. We stayed at an incredible accommodation, featuring the most breath-taking views and hammocks dotted everywhere, the perfect place to chill out and read your book, (if you get chance!) During our weekend at Suan Phueng, we did a range of incredible activities such as quad biking, off-roading and visiting hot springs; it was a fun filled weekend to say the least!
Throughout the 2 months at Camp, I got involved with a range of teaching. I’m coincidentally training to be a teacher now, so it gave me the perfect experience I needed before embarking on my PGCE. When I started my PGCE I had an advantage in comparison to the other teachers who had never taught before; even though it was a completely different teaching environment, you learn a variety of relevant skills. For example, my classroom management methods improved and I learned how to maintain the attention of the children during a lesson, whilst teaching different abilities.
My favourite part of my 2 months at Camp was doing the Cambodia Tour. I’m so glad I spent one month at Camp B; I would’ve been disappointed to have missed out! Cambodia is a beautiful and wonderful country, with some of the friendliest people I have met, especially a local lady called Nana!
During the trip to Cambodia, we visited Angkor Wat at sunrise – it was clear to see why it was named as one of the 7 wonders of the world! We also enjoyed a tuk-tuk tour and experienced countless nights out on Pub Street. All in all, it was a great weekend spent with great people!
Hope you enjoyed my post!
