Sustainability lies at the core of Chyulu Wilderness Camp. We use locally grown food, sustainable energy sources and water from the local pump, exposing the students to more ecofriendly ways of living.
No vaccinations are needed for your stay as the altitude at the camp guarantees safety from most tropical diseases. We will advise you on the necessary medical requirements ahead of your booking.
There is no communication between parents and students during the camp, except in the case of an emergency. Parents may call the camp director, if urgent.
Computers are available at the library and can be used by students to email their parents when they arrive at the camp.
“Classes” in the traditional sense are not part of the standard programme. There will be, however, allocated hours for reflection and self-study.
Yes, over the course of their week at CWC there will be activities such as yoga, healing forest walks, tribal music, and workshops.
We have a standard programme, covering our four main pillars: Adventure expedition, Community volunteering, Conservation, and Mindfulness. If there are specific activities you would like to do with your students, we would need to organise these in advance with the
person responsible for Activities at the camp.
For every 10 paying students, we can offer 1 freeteacher and 1 free student.
