Camp Bali

Explore the mystique of Indonesia with Camp Bali and delve into a Summer of sun, fun and adventure.

Limited to just 60 places, Camp Bali is an exclusive program offering the opportunity for Campers to feast their eyes upon some of the planet’s most captivating locations, including Bali, Lombok and the Gili Islands.

Explore the depths of crystal clear, aquatic hideaways and get up close and personal with kaleidoscopic reefs.

Immerse yourself in local culture, and partake in language and cooking lessons, while participants will be given the chance to flash their artistic flair during a Batik painting class.

Meanwhile, a visit to the rice terraces of Bali, considered an art form in their own right, is truly a sight to behold, while coffee drinkers can marvel at the source of their inherent vice during a visit to a coffee plantation.

Clown around with the adorable wildlife during a visit to the local monkey sanctuary and in the latter stages of your adventure, care for turtles as part of the Turtle Conservation Project.

A Summer recipe blending a generous serving of fun and utopia, Camp Bali is a Summer Camp that’ll leave you craving a second serving.

Shower yourself in sparks of sunshine at beautiful beaches and visit Ubud’s amazing Mountain Rice Terraces – the epitome of paradise, Bali must be seen to be believed.

Your Camp Bali program fee does not include the cost of your transportation to Bali, or your transportation out of Bali when your Camp Bali program finishes.

Is Camp Bali for everyone? (Something to consider)

Camp Bali is not everyone’s idea of a holiday and it’s not always relaxing. At times you may find yourself in testing circumstances, as you would when experiencing any new culture. There may be bad weather, mosquitos, long journeys, slow wifi and limited food options. However, here at Camp Bali, we believe that is what comes with stepping out of your comfort zone and into the unknown. We love it, as have thousands of previous Camp Bali attendees. However, we realise that it may not be everyone’s cup of tea.

Before applying to take part in Camp Bali, please understand that it’s a cultural experience. It isn’t a luxury holiday, and one of our main focuses is to make a positive impact, which often comes with hard work. We can not guarantee you will have a nice relaxing time. You have to come to Camp Bali with a sense of adventure, go with the flow and be laid back. Basically, YOU are the deciding factor in the experience you have at Camp Bali. We provide the setup and infrastructure for you to have an incredible experience. However, that is only half of it. The other half comes from you. Your passion to help others, your spirit to do something different, your ability to make friends and go with the flow. You get out what you put in and if you give it your all, together we will have an amazing experience at Camp Bali.

Is Wi-Fi available at Camp Bali?

Please take into consideration that Wi-Fi connectivity could be limited during your time in Bali. However, don’t worry; Wi-Fi will be there waiting for you upon your return!

Do I get any free time at Camp?

Of course! It’d be unrealistic on our behalf to deprive participants of the opportunity to explore this incredible country!

Will I get time to travel after Camp?

Certainly! With so many amazing places in Bali we encourage this! Each member of our team is well traveled and have visited Bali many times, so we are always happy to give you travel advice.

Will I make friends at Camp Bali?

Definitely! You will be making friends from the moment you land in Bali, friends you will keep for life after sharing such an amazing experience.

Should I bring a suitcase or a backpack for Camp Bali?

The choice is yours, but a backpack is definitely more suitable for travelling around Bali. Plus, you don’t want to look like a starry-eyed first time traveller dragging around a heavy suitcase, looking like you just landed at a 5* resort in Europe!

Do I need a passport and a visa?

Passport: A full passport valid for the duration of your stay is required. Please check that you still have at least 6 months left in your passport from the time you arrive in Bali.

Visa: For visa information, please contact a member of the team.
