About Phuket

Welcome to the Phuket summer camp. Phuket is a beautiful island based in southern Thailand. The island’s length, from north to south, is 48 kilometres (30 mi) and its width is 21 kilometres (13 mi) with a population of just over 600,000 people. Phuket is surrounded by breathtaking beaches such as Rawai, Patong, Karon, Kamala, Kata yai, Kata Noi and

Mai khao. Laem Phromthep viewpoint is said to have the most beautiful sunset in the whole of Thailand.

Phuket is not all just beaches though, the island is home to some fantastic architecture, amazing temples, beautiful waterfalls and not forgetting the world famous nightlife of Patong Beach. The island really does have it all.

Is the summer camp right for me?

Our 10 day summer camp was set up for the following 2 reasons.

1, To give people in full time work the opportunity to experience a summer camp. Some of us did not get the opportunity to take a gap year or a summer off to travel due to work commitments. Our 10 day mini camps give you the opportunity to experience everything Thailand has to offer. All whilst taking your annual leave. No need to quit your job.

2, To give young travelers embarking on their travel journey a kick start into the travel lifestyle. Traveling for the first time can be very daunting so sit back, relax and let us take care of everything. You will have professional UK guides attending the camp with you along with local specialists. After 10 days with us you’ll be able to confidently travel onwards without hesitation. Our guides can even assist you in planning further travel if needed.

If you fall into one of the above categories then our summer camps would be perfect for you.

The minimum age requirement for our summer camps is 18+ due to the party nature of the camps. The average age of our travelers can vary between 18 – 30 but we do welcome 30+.
