Camper Linlee from Laos says
” In our school we follow the teacher and we follow the books – In the OMP camps we learn how to use internet and we learn to be active learners”
Volunteer Mike from California says
" I have been in awe at the how much children can learn in one week at our camps. They arrive as caterpillars and after a week in the camp cocoon, they depart as butterflies!"
’The debates make me more confident. I learn English by searching, discussing, not by heart! First the volunteers teach me and then we have to search and find information and discuss with our friends before we present the information.’
Volunteer Work in Thailand Camps
Our local staff and trainees come from the same backgrounds as the campers! Now they help their friends together with volunteers!
We have camps in April at our Center and camps in the Thai Myanmar Mountains in October, and often extra camps on demand.
Volunteers do not have to be teachers! You do not teach but help campers to learn! Then learning is fun!
Campers have created their own Facebook group "We love Openmind Projects'
Volunteers, parents, teachers, friends are all amazed at what the campers achieve in one week at our Camps!
Campers come from villages in Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar. Volunteers with lots of energy from all over the world are welcome! Openmind Projects staff and trainees come from Thailand, Laos and Myanmar.
Camps are held at Openmind Projects Training Center in NongKhai, Thailand but we also hold “Mobile Camps” to reach out to Karen, Burmese, refugee, migrant youth in the Thai Burma Mountains.
During school holiday months April and October but also on demand camps other times of the year.
Camps are 6 – 8 days long.
Openmind Projects staff and volunteers form teams to lead Camp Activities.
Campers teams consist of 5-8 campers.
Number of campers are 25-35 per camp.
