Our Jungle Camp is more than an ordinary resort. It’s a place where several passion projects intersect, offering unique opportunities to locals and visitors. Eco-tourism, organic sustainable agriculture, nature education, and mindfulness are all parts of the Our Jungle Camp experience, and each visit supports these projects.
Proceeds from the resort are used to fund free nature camps for local school children. We work together with local schools to provide supplemental programs that show fundamental concepts of sustainability and natural sciences. Instead of simply learning in a classroom, students are able to experience these concepts first hand! This is done through nature walks, wildlife sighting, educational games and gardening activities.
Just next to the student quarters, we have 3 full time local staff maintaining 980 square meters of farmland. This allows us to source most of our vegetables directly in house and provide a learning space for visitors and students to learn more about sustainable agriculture. We grow our own rice, pumpkin, carrots, cucumbers, lettuce, and broccoli. Aside from veggies, we grow various Thai herbs and flowers like Roselle, Butterfly Pea and lemongrass, just to name a few and we have the full variety of wild banana and papaya.
Nestled at the edge of the resort along the nature trails is also our yoga sala. We are very fortunate to be collaborating with a professionally trained local, Rossi, to provide mindfulness and yoga programs for guests, students, and staff. Our yoga sala can also be used for yoga teachers to conduct their own retreats.
All of these projects play an important part in our resort’s mission. We strive to create a space that provides a unique experience for guests and a where locals can expand their talents, foster an appreciation for nature, and pass it along to the next generation!
