CAMP COUNSELOR THAILAND
TEACH ENGLISH CAMPS IN THAILAND
The Camp Counselor Thailand Program is a fantastic adventure that allows participants to dive into the rich and diverse culture, and beauty of Thailand in just 4 weeks!
Camp counselors will arrive in Bangkok, Thailand where they will meet the XploreAsia team at an informative welcome meeting.
Next stop is Hua Hin, a beach resort town south of the capital. Here you will take part in an exciting cultural orientation with your fellow counselors, joining in on some insightful lectures, and embarking on some amazing cultural excursions.
After the orientation, you will then begin travelling across Thailand to various destinations where you will take part in English camps. At the camps, you get to the opportunity to help disadvantaged Thai learners acquire the skills needed to improve their lives and communicate across cultures.
Between each of the camps, you will return to Hua Hin for a few days of well-earned rest and relaxation.
The benefits of this short-term program range from experiencing various parts of Thailand, meeting new and interesting people, to experiencing the a wonderful culture through immersion.
With this program you’re able to combine the benefits of a unique adventure with the positive impact you’ll be making at camps designed to help those who need it most.

DETAILS OF THE CAMP COUNSELOR THAILAND PROGRAM
Counselors take part in an action-packed, five-day cultural orientation program before travelling across Thailand. Some say we offer one of the best orientation programs in Thailand.
Past cultural orientation courses have included:
- In-depth lectures on Thai history, politics, religion, and geography
- Thai language lessons
- Several active learning cultural excursions to places and organizations of cultural and educational importance including:
- Muay Thai martial arts training
- A guided tour of a Buddhist temple and a blessing from a Thai monk
- Volunteering with a dog rescue organization
- Visiting an elephant foundation
- Learning about (and taking part in) classical Thai arts and crafts
- Celebrating at a fun beach barbeque we arrange for all participants, a great opportunity to bond with your new friends
TRAVEL & TEACH ACROSS THAILAND
Following the cultural orientation, you will begin travelling across the country to various English camps. You may travel by train, bus or van depending on the location of the camp. Once you’ve arrived at the camp location, you’ll have some time to get settled into your accommodation before starting the camp. The English camps are generally set up for disadvantaged children within the local community.
After each camp, you will return to Hua Hin where you’ll kick back and relax for a few days before moving on to your next camp and location. Each camp lasts between 2 and 4 days, after which you will be given adequate time to recuperate in Hua Hin before your next camp.
