Fundraising Friday Star – Teneal

Fundraising Friday Star – Teneal

This is a big moment – it’s the first EVER Australian Fundraising Friday Star! Today, we meet Teneal from Victoria. She’s been fundraising like crazy ever since she heard about the expedition to Borneo with her school and there’s no stopping her. Have a read about how she’s been getting on. Well done Teneal! Camps International came and gave a talk at my school. I listened and watched the videos and photos in awe. I want to go there! But...

A chance to experience Borneo

A chance to experience Borneo

As a taster, my week in Sabah, Borneo, was a marvellous introduction to Camps International’s student expedition programmes. With ten other teachers, following a schedule put together especially for us by Camps International, I had the opportunity to experience a myriad of activities and challenges, providing a thorough insight into the range of benefits students would receive on the three or four-week programmes. The pace was high, but it allowed us to cover lots of ground in Sabah, including two...

Familiarising ourselves with Borneo

Familiarising ourselves with Borneo

At the start of April, twelve lucky teachers got the opportunity to visit Borneo for a jam-packed seven-day Familiarisation Trip, giving them an insight into what their students will experience on a full expedition. Over the course of the seven days, our group of teachers were kept extremely busy with trips to visit current project sites, overnight stays in our camps and day trips to the Sepilok Orangutan and Bornean Sun Bears Conservation Centres. Two of our travelling teachers from...

Giving the Gift of Education

Giving the Gift of Education

  The communities we live and work alongside are at the heart of everything we do, and at the heart of each community lies the next generation; children bursting with potential. At Camps we believe every child deserves an education, one that forms the foundation of a bright future. Schooling not only provides literacy and numeracy skills for children in developing countries, but a chance to understand nutrition, address gender equality and learn vital business skills. Attending school allows children...

Community Outreach Programme – Timbang Batu

Community Outreach Programme – Timbang Batu

Kampung (meaning village) Timbang Batu is located  approximately 2 KM radius or 4.5km by road from Camp Tinangol. There are about 500 estimated population in this Rungus community. 2013, was the year when we first visited this village through our local relations from Tinangol after an informal invitation. Like all of our permanent camps we took time to get to know our neighbours in building a long lasting relationship. On our initial visits to Timbang Batu, we were introduced to...

Mt Kinabalu with Jonny Wilkinson and Carl Hayman

Mt Kinabalu with Jonny Wilkinson and Carl Hayman

It’s the sort of trip that friends hate you to go on.  Mine are already pretty tired of my Facebook posts as I work my way round our camps on my annual pilgrimage to spend time with our crews in various corners of the world, but this was my second climb with Jonny and every bit as good as the last, so here goes with another round of dodgy selfies. Every year we look for brilliant causes to which we...

Whirlwind Week In Borneo

Whirlwind Week In Borneo

I am always proud to work for Camps International, but nothing can heighten that more than being able to get the opportunity to travel abroad to one of our locations to see it for myself! This October half term, I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to travel to one of our Asian locations Borneo and what a place it is! I travelled alongside a bunch of excited teachers who are due to be travelling with their students...

Fundraising Friday Star – Naomi!

Naomi makes it sound so easy and has raised the total cost of the expedition- which isn‰'t due until next year! A winning combination of working and fundraising seems to be the way forward, and sounds like Noami‰'s mum may have super powers. Great team effort guys! £4000 raised in 362 days, yolo! When my mum transferred the deposit for my Borneo 2016 trip on October 16th 2014 we knew that the entire trip would have to be fully funded...

FUNDRAISING FRIDAY STAR – JENNY !!

This week‰'s star has got it sussed when it comes to getting the word out. Not only has she created her own website but she has also managed to have a piece written about her fundraising journey in her local newspaper- nice one! She‰'s also apparently a star in the making, gaining sponsorship by singing and selling cd‰'s, can you send us one into Camps please?! When I first found out about the Borneo trip I was so exited- then...

FUNDRAISING FRIDAY STAR – ELLEESSE!!

The best thing about my job is that I get to chat to you lot about how you‰'re getting on- some of you are used to me ringing you up for a good old chinwag and others I haven‰'t spoken to much (give us a call, I‰'d love to chat!) My favourite thing is when you get in contact with me out of the blue with something really positive. This week‰'s fundraising Friday Star wasn‰'t even an entry initially, I...

Fundraising Friday Star – Tara!!

Me again today - though credit must go to our Fundraising Guru Lauren for talking to Tara and getting this story....over to them! At 5‰"2 tall (and a half, I hasten to add) I can safely say I do not belong on the cat walk. Not to mention the fact I would almost definitely fall over and that the last time I attempted to walk in heels I somehow managed to get my shoe wedged in a drain - don‰'t...
