Camp Maldives is the perfect way to experience the island lifestyle in one of the most tranquil hotspots in the world…

Set in amongst serene surroundings, nestled in a heavenly hub within the Indian Ocean, Camp Maldives participants are treated to a unique, fresh experience, encircled by warm, tropical seas.

A tropical retreat into escapism, Camp Maldives is the ideal opportunity to help and support local communities with an avid appetite for education; the program is the creme de la creme for tutors of English language and conservation enthusiasts.

We support the local schools and communities by running language classes, workshops, sports schools, reforestation projects and coral restoration projects– there’s never a dull moment for those keen to make a real difference. In your down time, we run snorkelling trips, island tours, beach BBQ’s and even trips to sandbanks. So, if you’re on the hunt for a sun-baked cocktail comprising Pacific adventure and charitable work, look no further – you’re bound to fall head over heels in love with the mystique and beauty of the Maldives.

 

The Program:

  • Schedule: Volunteer for 3 – 4 days with a minimum of 5 hours being expected. Outside of this, there is free time to do as you wish or get involved with the below activities that can take place at any time throughout your time on the island.
  • Airport Pickup and Transfer: You will arrive in Male International Airport before meeting our Camp Maldives team in the terminal who will give you a traditional Maldives greeting and transfer you to your new home for the next three weeks: Hoadedhoo.
  • Tour: To round off your orientation, we will give you a complete tour of the island! This consists of being shown all the hotspots for the best cuisine as well as the best beaches to go to visit and top up your tan!
  • Project: The workshops begins the day after your orientation, so you are immersed within the island life with immediate effect. Delve into the traditions of the local community and help in beach clean ups.
  • Snorkeling And Fishing: The hundreds of atolls that are the Maldives is formed of the carbonate-rich rocks submerged beneath the warm waters surrounding the shores. Not only are these responsible for the beautiful white beaches but they are also a foundation of diverse sea-life. Amongst the corals, some of the most magnificent fish can be found, native only to the Maldives.
  • Return Transfer: It’s going to be hard to leave this majestic paradise, we know that, so if you need to take a few more days here absorbing as much of it as possible we understand. Just let us know in advance when you are planning to return and we will arrange your return transport to the airport in Male ensuring you have no reason to concern yourself with planning after a month away…

Invasion Camp Maldives Reviews

Amazing experience

I would highly recommend this adventure just to see the Maldives. It’s breathtaking and something everyone should experience with valuable education on climate change and the use of plastic all over the world. I have met life long friends and had some of my best memories on this trip!

Invasion/Camp Maldives

This was truly an amazing experience. The Maldives is a breath taking beautiful place and to be able to do conservation work here was so rewarding. I would definitely recommend this programme to anyone who enjoys the water, sun and to help make a difference towards the helping of the planet!
