Couldn’t recommend camp thailand enough. Everything went to plan and our rep Ellie was amazing. She started as a rep and instantly became a friend, a nurse, a counsellor and a role model all at the same time. It’s scary going travelling on your own but we met such lovely people during camp. I’d definitely do it again


Honestly this trip was the best 20 days of my life, camp Thailand go above and beyond to make peoples dreams come true, our rep brooke was not only our mother for a few weeks but became our best of friends and it was sad when we had to go back home.


It was a great experience met lots of lovely people Becca and Olivia were really great and supportive throughout the whole experience would 100 percent do another camp with them.


I went to Camp Thailand this year and it was an amazing experience, the reps were great from start to finish really made sure we had a good time. The Camp activities and places we visited were so stunning especially seeing the elephants. It was my first time solo travelling and I would 100% do it again on one of their Camp programs.


Best experience Ive ever had. Going to Camp Thailand was unreal. I made so many friends, taught kids in schools, looked after elephants and did some great activities. I even joined the island hopping tour at the end. So good! Hoping to do another Camp next year.


Had such an easy booking experience and an amazing trip with camp thailand!! My group was lovely and we are all keeping in touch to meet again, I've been recommending to all my friends! They also answered all my questions so quickly over social media which was so helpful.
