“Our daughter Georga who is almost 18 chose to do the volunteer camp in Botswana, looking forward to a new experience with no contact whatsoever with her family or friends. The concept of doing something meaningful and giving back was another positive in her choice.
Georga returned after being away for 10 days with a shift in her outlook because of many experiences she had, all positive.
She did not have one negative comment to make , she flourished with the teamwork ,physical labour, early nights after a long, hot day and true sense of community.
She proudly told us of her use of a pick axe, panga and rock transportation.
There were lots of stimulating conversations regarding conservation which educated her and has her wanting to return for a much longer stint which shows how meaningful this experience was.
From a parent’s point of view, this was the most valuable and value for money school trip by far.”
