Yes you will. There’s WIFI available at almost all bars, accommodations and restaurants. However, please be aware that you are in south east Asia and sometimes the WIFI may be slow! If you want consistently reliable WIFI, we recommend bringing an unlocked smart phone and purchasing a local sim card. Data packages can be purchased reasonably cheap.
If you come alone, you’re guaranteed to leave with friends. Most our participants do come alone so most people will be in the same boat as you; looking to have an amazing time and to meet other people. A few months before you depart we also make a Facebook group which we’ll add you into, so you’ll get the chance to chat in there before you arrive. If you do want to come with friends, that’s completely fine too. Why not check our our “Refer A Friend” scheme? You could save £50 off your program fees for each friend you bring!
It’s difficult to give an exact figure for this question as it really does change from person to person, depending upon how much of a baller you are! We usually say around £99-150 per week. However, you can spend less – Bali is fairly cheap. Of course, if you choose to do lots of extra excursions on your free time, have cocktails most nights and go out a lot, you will obviously spend a bit more.
We usually recommend bringing a backpack. As you will be travelling around a lot, it’s much easier to carry around when you’re getting on and off busses and boats. For example, with Camp Island Hopping, you go to Bali, Ubud, Lombok and Gili! It’s amazing you get to see a lot of different places, so carrying a backpack would probably be easier than lugging a suitcase around. It’s up to your personal preference though and our program can accommodate both options.
You will receive a packing list as part of the ‘Pre-Departure pack’ which you will be sent prior to leaving for Camp Bali, but here’s just a few items we recommend taking;
– Mosquito spray
– Sun cream
– Warm weather clothing
– A camera to capture all your amazing experiences
– You will also want to bring your own towel and washcloth as only bed linens are provided at camp
Personal Travel Insurance, covering the time you will be in Thailand plus any activities that you will be undertaking, as well as any planned travel to other countries.
A DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Check. If you are a UK national, Camp Bali will arrange your DBS check for you for a fee of £48.86. If you are coming from another country you will need to contact your local police department and initiate the process yourself to get the DBS equivalent from your country. If you are from another country and would like some guidance, feel free to call our office on 0161 222 3780. Please note that even if you already hold a DBS certificate, unfortunately, we must still conduct our own check.
