We serve Religious, Humanitarian, Medical, and Faculty-Led Academic Groups from all over the world, but primarily from the United States. Camalote Camp is American owned and operated and our experience in Belize dates back to 1981. Since then we have helped volunteer groups donate and distribute medical equipment and supplies to hospitals, clothing to the needy, medical services to the sick, conducted training of all types, and much more. It has been very rewarding to see so many needy local Belizeans helped so much by groups using our facility. Our guests sometimes work in very remote villages, without electricity or running water. Even though these villages can be isolated, they're still accessible from Camalote Camp. We provide you a safe and comfortable place in Belize to relax when your day is done.
Here's how we can assist you:
Church mission groups coming to Belize to do carpentry and building projects can use our tools. We have most tools you'll need, but it would be advisable to contact us ahead of time to make sure we have what your group will require. This allows you more room in your luggage for other supplies. There is no charge for using our tools but if you break a tool, we do ask that you replace it with a similar tool. If your group needs assistance in identifying and selecting local building projects, we can help.
Humanitarian Groups coming to Belize to teach in a town or village may also find it beneficial to use our facilities at Camalote Camp. We have meeting areas for both small and large groups, presentation aids, and both indoor and outdoor facilities. Give us a call, we'll help in any way we can. There is no charge for this service.
Medical groups that plan to work in a hospital or in local villages often find it helpful for us to assist them in applying for required temporary licensing. This process takes about 60 days and is required for all medical professionals. We recommend that medical groups contact us in advance so that we can help make sure everything is ready when you arrive. We are happy to assist and never charge our guests for helping.
College and University Faculty-Led Field Experience:
Academic groups sometime find it helpful to send equipment and supplies to us ahead of time for storage before their team arrives. We work closely with local officials and can assist in providing project ideas and any needed local coordination and support before you arrive. Just give us a call and we'll do our best to make sure your students have an effective and rewarding learning experience in Belize.
Transportation to and from Belize International Airport in Belize City can be provided by our camp. We use 15-passenger vans to meet guests at the airport and transport them and their luggage from the airport to our facility. We also rent vans for your use while in Belize, normally for much less than local auto rental companies. Drivers can be provided if desired, but are usually not necessary. All vehicles are air conditioned and fully insured.
