Our Team at Inspire Educamps – Ho Chi Minh City

Inspire Educamps is the exclusive provider of Growth Mindset and Life Skills summer camps to the leading international schools in Ho Chi Minh City.

Our activity-based summer camps are designed around engaging weekly project-based themes driven by inquiry learning. Our activities include Sports & Teambuilding, Cooking, Arts & Crafts and more!

Our programs are designed by a team of international educators focusing on confidence building and personal growth for children aged 5 to 15.

Each summer we have more than 40 nationalities join in our summer camps, with children attending from local and international schools in Vietnam as well as attending directly from overseas.

Inspire Educamps has been partnered with International School Ho Chi Minh City since 2018 and partnered with Canadian International School since 2023.

Each year we welcome many returning and new students to our 5-week summer camps where families have the convenience to register from 2 to 5 weeks, which offers the flexibility needed for families travelling during the summer holidays.

Due to the increasing demand, Inspire Educamps plans to open more camps in H Chi Minh City in 2025, partnering with other top international schools.


Our motto is “How we think is EVERYTHING!”     

At Inspire Educamps, we pride ourselves on a team of deeply passionate and professional staff, each handpicked for their specialized skills and dedication to our unique summer and winter camp programs. Our staff undergo rigorous selection processes, including specialized training and supervision by our in-house training experts. We ensure that all our international staff hold at least a Degree, an ESL qualification (such as CELTA), and meet the police background clearance standards required by our partner schools. Above all, each team member is chosen for their enthusiasm for child development, possessing the vital skills and integrity necessary for fostering young minds.
