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 would recommend participating in a workcamp, especially with VAP, who ensured that I found a project to suit me and provided essential training for me in preparation for my trip. Being part of a workcamp really is a life-changing experience, oh, and it looks great on your CV! »
