Three-Week Volunteer Teaching Trip: Chiang Mai, Thailand

Chiang Mai, Thailand Education



There are four camp locations to choose from, including Phuket Island, Cha-Am Beach, Chiang Mai, and Buriram in the heart of Thailand. This 21-day trip includes English teaching volunteer activities as well as tours, cultural immersion, and much more.

Camp Thailand’s volunteer program also gives you an opportunity to gain your TEFL/TESOL certification online or onsite in Thailand - after earning your certificate and volunteering with Camp Thailand at its English language programs, the organization will help you find a paid English teaching placement at a Thai school.

The program is open to anyone above the age of 18.


Volunteers on this program get to make a real, meaningful, and lasting difference in the lives of young Thai students while immersing themselves and experiencing Thai culture firsthand.
