The Overview

What’s the best way to inspire environmental awareness in the next generation? Try sending kids to Green Camp Bali. Its green and holistic—not to mention fabulously fun—camping experiences are bound to give them a learning-filled vacation they won’t forget.

In the heart of a pristine jungle, Green Camp is just 20 minutes from downtown Ubud and mere steps from the Agung River. Its eight-hectare campus boasts a small cacao plantation, vegetable and herb gardens, and a teaching center occupying the world’s largest bamboo building. Campers lodge in comfy thatch-roofed yurts with attached baths (day camping is also an option) and fuel up on healthy meals prepared with ingredients harvested on site.

Five- to 11-year-olds can discover Balinese culture by making chareng (offering trays) and staging their own wayang kulit (shadow puppet) shows, while river tubing and mud-pit wrestling offer old-fashioned fun. Older kids can watch the sun rise after a challenging night hike up Mt. Datur, race rafts built by their own hands from nothing but bamboo and string, and learn about the life cycle of rice via a hike and treasure hunt around local paddies. Programs vary, but a five-night stay guarantees the full Green Camp experience.
