Camp South Africa in a nutshell…
Camp South Africa is an organisation that specialises in sending applicants out to South Africa to spend their summer having fun and working at Camp. With teams based in both the UK and South Africa we have a wealth of knowledge to ensure that our applicants are provided with the best support. Not only does Camp South Africa provide safe, friendly and fun Summer Camp positions, we also provide all applicants with the full training they will need to start teaching (no matter their previous experience). Our applicants will be given an internationally accredited, 30 hour Teaching Young Learners Qualification. We also run an orientation and teaching seminar once they arrive in South Africa, to give them that extra boost of confidence before they hit the classrooms!
Camp South Africa provide full support to your son/daughter throughout the whole process. From submitting their application to when they leave South Africa, there will always be someone to help. All applicants are met at the airport and are taken to their accommodation for their first night in Bangkok, before we then transport them by VIP bus straight to Camp. During these two days, we ensure all applicants meet other teachers, get all the information they need and get fully settled in and are prepared for their adventure ahead!
On all of our programmes, we can offer applicants guidance in their visa application process. Most applicants will enter the country on a 30 day Tourist Visa, depending upon how long they want to stay in South Africa for. If your son or daughter plan to stay in South Africa for longer than 30 days, they should apply for a single entry Thai tourist visa which will cover them for 60 days. Camp South Africa will help all applicants through the visa application process, so there is nothing to worry about.
Travel to and from South Africa
Once an applicant has been confirmed on the programme and we have received their deposit to secure their place, we will put them in touch with our flight partners. Our flight partners have many years of experience and are experts at finding the right flights at the right prices to suit our applicants. If any of our applicants are unsure as to when they want to come home, this is not a problem; our flight partners offer amazing flexi-flight deals as well.
Camp South Africa fees and refunds
All payments are non-refundable if a cancellation is made by the applicant. However, if the cancellation is a result of serious extenuating circumstance, the team could look into partially refunding the applicant. Any applicant who has not provided all necessary documentation in time will not be offered a refund as we cannot process that person without a complete application. For more information on our refunds policy, please read our Terms and Conditions.
