Group AidCamps are projects that enable you to unite with other volunteers to fund and help implement a larger community development aid project than you could by yourself. These AidCamps usually provide a community building for local children, such as
a village primary school, an orphanage, a resource centre or a health clinic.
A Group AidCamp typically consists of 12-15 volunteers and lasts for either two or three weeks. You can join individually, or come with your partner or some friends. While our Group AidCamps attract a wide range of people and ages, you'll find that everyone
has something in common: a desire to help.
There's no "hard hat" work and you don't have to have any skills, experience, or the muscles of a bricklayer. The serious construction work is done before you arrive by local workers, funded by the AidCamp. You'll be helping with the finishing work, usually
plastering, painting, decorating, and other bits and pieces to get it from being four-walls-and-a-roof to a finished building.
As well as the voluntary work itself, all of our Group AidCamps have an itinerary organised around them designed to familiarise you with the "real" country. Where the project allows we will also take you to some of the more traditional natural and cultural
heritage sites of the region.
Group AidCamps are offered as a package, with most in-country costs (accommodation, most food, ground transportation and excursions) included in the registration fee. They are guided projects, led by one of our project co-ordinators from the UK who will
be with you the whole time, from picking you up at the airport on your arrival to taking you back there when the project is over.
