Elephant Camp & Local School - 1 week + 1 week

What will you be doing, who will you meet and where will you stay?

Get up close and personal with Thailand.

The Elephant Camp and Local School Experience is a fantastic TEFL Adventure and your chance to practice some of your teaching skills with local children and spend time with the elephants. You will feel wonderful when you start to teach the local community in Chiang Mai. It will be an experience you will not forget for a long time.

We have arranged for you to teach some of the children in the local community. Your teaching will make a huge difference to these children as you are giving them the chance to learn English. The second week of the project will be spent with the elephants. It's quite a TEFL Adventure.

It’s easier then you think to make a difference.
