If you have ever thought about doing a cultural exchange program, or dreamed of going to Thailand, alone or with friends, or thought about volunteering at a summer camp or at an Elephant or Wildlife Sanctuary or a healthcare volunteer we have created the perfect program, which combines the best that Thailand has to offer with a Camp experience.
The great thing about the Gap Odyssey experience is that you get to go through the program, working, volunteering, eating, living and doing activities with the rest of your colleagues as part of a team. You never need feel alone because now you are part of a club or extended family that is made up of people with similar profiles as yourself that come together from countries all around the world. Everyone is united by their individual goals such as experiencing something unique, fun and meaningful while making a lasting difference in the lives of other people and having the opportunity to work with Elephants and other animals. When it comes to Thailand, we are the experts! The program is structured and perfectly organised but it is not rigid or inflexible. On the contrary, for the first three weeks you get to experience everything with your new best friends and during the fourth week, rather than flying straight home you can choose from nine Special Elective Programs that are on offer (N.B. An additional fee applies for Special Elective Programs). You also get to experience life on an exotic Thai beach location for the final 4 days of your intake program. There are also special optional tours such as the Bangkok Sightseeing Tour, which is the perfect way to kick-start your program or the Thailand Island Hopping Tour which is a great way to wind down at the end of your Gap Odyssey experience. If you selected Camp B you may also wish to visit the 7th Wonder of the World, Angkor Wat, on our 4 day Cambodia tour.
