Before the camp started, I always wanted to learn about coral and marine life biodiversity. This year I finally got the opportunity to learn in South Sulawesi. I learned the importance of ocean to life on earth and how important it is to protect it, so that our children and grandchildren will get to experience in an even richer way than I already have.

Not only this journey has been fun, but also educational! We were able to witness the problem the ocean is facing and how we can help it. I was fascinated by the abundance of marine life, half of the creatures I did not know it existed! It is only here in Sulawesi, can you imagine the entire world?

At first, I honestly did not think I would survive life without Wi-Fi for a week, but it has been so amazing and I want to come back! To be disconnected for this time and to have so much fun, meet new people, learn new culture, make new friends and be in a beautiful place has been transformational for me. I also love the Buddy system we had during our time here where a local Indonesian and a foreigner pair up in each program. This helps us to learn more about each other’s culture more intimately.

The South Sulawesi Sustainability Journey is an extraordinary summer camp designed to give ample time for kids ages 12 – 16 to enjoy themselves in one of the world’s most amazing coastal landscapes, whilst learning about colorful local Indonesian culture, authentic sustainability and build resiliency in the outdoors. Campers will spend the first and last night at Green Camp in Bali and the rest at our solar-powered beachside residence in Pajoka Beach House, Ara, Bontobahari, Bulukumba, South Sulawesi. It is a truly adventurous and inspiring journey where you will learn marine biodiversity and its significance to our ecosystem, snorkel pristine reefs, hike way off the beaten track and explore colorful local culture.
During the camp, our dedicated facilitators will give campers genuine support to challenge themselves to enhance their environmental awareness, teamwork and survival skills, whilst building a lifetime of memories.
