Volunteer at Learning Camps in Thailand

Learning Camps for poor children with a nonprofit.


Volunteer at Learning Camps in Thailand and Online  

Our Learning Camps are mainly held April and October, the school holiday months in Thailand. 

Volunteers can join before camps start so you can help plan the camp and prepare yourself.

As our volunteer you help young but poor villagers, migrants and refugees to learn, therefore you don’t have to be a teacher.


Camper Linlee from Laos, ” In our school we follow the teacher and the books. In the OMP camps we learn how to use internet and we learn to be learners.


Volunteer Mike from California “I have been in awe at how much children can learn in one week at our camps. They arrive as caterpillars, after a week in the camp cocoon, they depart as butterflies!


We now also arrange ONLINE CAMPS, so you are welcome to volunteer from home.

Camp Volunteer abroad in Thailand and Online

’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.’

Our volunteers don’t have to be teachers   

Campers learn together with international volunteers who work hand in hand with local volunteers bridging language barriers.

You don’t have to be a teacher because we will introduce you to our Learning by Doing at our camps.

Campers work in teams and search online in English with volunteer help. They learn about important topics such as global warming, technology effects on education or health. They use English and discuss while volunteers facilitate so campers can prepare and make presentations and videos to share with friends and online.

They learn by doing instead of being taught!


“This is a new and nice experience since they think, discuss and form their own, independent opinions!”

Together we work with and encourage campers so they become more confident to think critically and speak English. 

Learning is fun when campers make their own videos to share with friends on social media and compete for most likes and shares!

Debating is fun because campers like to compete so they work hard to find the best arguments, facts and English.

Openmind Campers become motivated learners!
