FAQ > What do I need to pack?

This is a general guide for travellers but it really depends on your location of choice!

You should not leave home without your travel and insurance documents safely packed away plus any relevant vaccinations or medicines required. Always take something warm for those cold nights and sun cream for the hot days. A travel guide and phrasebook often come in very handy and don’t forget your camera!

VAP’s Orientation Weekend is essential to help you understand more specifically what you will need to take with you to your location, in case you are going to a Southern country.

Quote of the day

« I can say that the best things about the workcamp and this whole experience were the chance of making a real difference to the lives of very needy children. This is an extremely valuable project where volunteers can have a massive impact. Also the possibility of learning a huge amount about a country so different from our own. I learnt ten times as much by carrying out a workcamp than I would ever do backpacking. »
