Sports & Adventures

When GEMS students step outside their classroom, you’ll see them involved in whole spectrum of sport and adventure experiences. Team sports, individual sports and adventures with memories that will last their lifetime. Take a look at how your child’s education is enriched through exploration.

Camps International has partnered with GEMS Education to provide all travel services to GEMS schools.

Camps International is a world leader in responsible travel with a unique, community based operating model. They commit year round to their projects, offering responsible travel experiences ranging from 1 to 12 weeks. Students benefit by participating in a wide range of sustainable community, wildlife and environmental projects around the world.

Camps International has won the ‘Best Volunteering Organisation’ in the World Responsible Tourism Awards and the ‘Eco-Warrior Award’ in Kenya.

Camps International owns and operates extensive ground operations in East Africa, SE Asia and Latin America providing fully supported, safe expeditions. They are located in the heart of rural communities and wildlife conservation areas. Each volunteer camp is built locally, staffed locally, supplied locally and acts as the hub from which Camps International develops and sustains community, wildlife and environmental programmes. They run over 100 varied projects that range from constructing school classrooms and supplying drinking water to wildlife conservation, teaching, reforestation, environmental education and marine workshops. Adventurous activities are incorporated into itineraries and include mountain treks, safari, river journeys, scuba diving and jungle trekking.
