You will need to fly to Male in the Maldives. Our in-house flight team will be able to help with you with this.
The accommodation is either the NGO hostel or a homestay in the local community.
The majority of our Camp Maldives applicants travel alone; it’s an amazing opportunity to meet incredible people and make friends for life.
The currency of the Maldives is called the Rufiyah, which is linked to the dollar at around 12.75 Rufiyah to the dollar. However, most resorts and many local islands will accept the US dollar (bring small denominations such as $1, $5 and $10) as payment.
Wifi at the NGO is limited and can drop off and can be used for emails only, not for downloading. If your phone is unlocked, you can purchase a Data Package on the island.
Stage 1: Apply! We need certain information so we can assess your application. Once you have applied for Camp Maldives one of our lovely team member will be in contact. They will give you all the required information, answer any questions you may have, and tell you about their amazing personal experiences at Camp Maldives.
