Camp Castaway Philippines in a nutshell…
Camp Camp Castaway Philippines is an organisation that specialises in sending applicants out to The Philippines to spend their summer having fun and working at Camp. With teams based in both the UK and The Philippines, we have a wealth of knowledge to ensure that our applicants are provided with the best support. Not only does Camp Castaway Philippines 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). We even offer an extra TEFL qualification that they can purchase and use after Camp to get jobs teaching English all around the world! We also run an orientation and teaching seminar once they arrive in The Philippines, to give them that extra boost of confidence before start making an impact in local communities.
Camp Castaway Philippines provide full support to your son/daughter throughout the whole process. From submitting their application to when they leave The Philippines, there will always be someone to help. All applicants are met at the airport and are taken to their accommodation for their first night by our reps.
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 The Philippins for. If your son or daughter plan to stay for longer than 30 days, they we can give guidance on this process. However, responsibility does fall on them to ensure they’re entering on the correct visa.
