Guardians

Hello Parents!

So your son or daughter has probably come home and briefly mentioned something about Camp Thailand. We understand this could be a daunting concept, and that their well being is your utmost concern. However, we are here to give you reassurance and peace of mind. We’re sure you have hundreds of questions, and we are here to answer each and every one of them for you. Please read below for the majority of the important information. If there is anything else you would like to know we are happy to answer your questions; feel free to call us on 0161 222 3780, or alternatively email us at info@summercampthailand.com. You can even come and see us personally at our Manchester HQ, we have plenty of free biscuits and cups of tea!

Camp Thailand in a nutshell…

Camp Thailand is an organisation that specialises in sending applicants out to Thailand to spend their summer having fun and working at Camp. With teams based in both the UK and Thailand, we have a wealth of knowledge and support to provide all applicants with. Not only does Camp Thailand provide safe, friendly and fun Summer Camp positions, we also provide all applicants with the full training they will need to start teaching (no matter their previous experience). Our applicants will be given an internationally accredited, 120 hour online TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language) qualification. We also run an Orientation and Teaching Seminar once they arrive in Thailand, to give them that extra boost of confidence before they hit the classrooms!

Camp Thailand provides full support to your son/daughter throughout the whole process. From submitting their application to when they leave Thailand, there will always be someone to help. All applicants are met at the airport and are taken to their accommodation for their first night in Bangkok, before we then transport them by VIP bus straight to Camp. During these two days we ensure all applicants meet other teachers, get all the information they need and get fully settled in and are prepared for their adventure ahead!

Visa

On all of our programmes, we can offer applicants guidance in their visa application process. Most applicants will enter the country on a 30 day Tourist Visa, depending upon how long they want to stay in Thailand for. If your son or daughter plan to stay in Thailand for longer than 30 days, they should apply for a single entry Thai tourist visa which will cover them for 60 days. Camp Thailand will help all applicants through the visa application process, so there is nothing to worry about.

Travel to and from Thailand

Once an applicant has been confirmed on the programme and we have received their deposit to secure their place, we will put them in touch with our flight partners. Our flight partners have been in this business for many years and are experts at finding the right flights at the right prices to suit our applicants. If any of our applicants are unsure as to when they want to come home, this is not a problem as our flight partners offer amazing flexi-flight deals as well.

Camp Thailand Fees and Refunds

All payments are non-refundable if a cancellation is made by the applicant. However, if the cancellation is a result of serious extenuating circumstances then the team could look into partially refunding the applicant. Any applicant who has not provided all necessary documentation in time will not be offered a refund as we cannot process that person without a complete application. For more information on our refunds policy, please read our Terms and Conditions.
