Team Pkar Milis returned from their unbelievable life-changing expedition in South East Asia during the summer holidays. This trip, 4 weeks long, saw 16 students and 2 members of staff adventuring to Cambodia to begin their phase of volunteering and supporting to make positive and sustainable change in the less developed and poorer communities. The group, most favourably known as Team Schnacks or Krum Aha Sumrun landed in Phnom Penh and spent the first few days embracing the culture and developing their understanding of Cambodia and its heart-breaking history by visiting the S21 prison and the killing fields.
The expedition saw the team spend time at two main camps within the country at Camp Beng Melea and Camp Beng Pae. There was a variety of project activities that ranged from constructing concrete rings to build water wells and toilet systems for members of the community as well as landscaping to help the locals to farm so that they could make a living and support their families. From constructing chicken coops and teaching in schools there was always something for the team to be immersed in and the team definitely made an impact in all the communities they spent time with. More student stories to come soon…
If you have enjoyed hearing the stories about Camp Cambodia and are in our current Year 10, 11 and 12 who are interested in doing something similar, you are in luck! Hampton High have launched the next expedition which will be embarking on a trip to Costa Rica and Nicaragua in the summer of 2020.
