Coronavirus update

Important update about travel to China:

Following Foreign Office advice against all but essential travel to mainland China, any departures prior to June 1, 2020 have been temporarily suspended. Departures after June 1 will remain unaffected until we issue a further update. On March 16th, 2020, we will conduct a review on whether to suspend or continue the Adventure China summer program.

The Adventure China programme will go ahead when the following 3 conditions are met:

1. The Foreign Office travel advisory against all but essential travel has been lifted

2. After the Foreign Office travel advisory has been lifted, our global head office in the UK and our local office in China have reviewed the situation and are confident of the day-to day-safety and welfare of our travellers

3. Our partner camps in China assure us that they are confident of the day-to day-safety and welfare of our travellers

Can I still apply for Adventure China?

Yes, applications will remain open until the situation has been reviewed on March 16th, 2020.

When will I find out if the programme has been suspended for summer 2020?

The situation will be reviewed on March 16th, 2020, and an update will be shared.

Can I get a refund?

If the decision is made to suspend the Adventure China programme, participants will be refunded all programme fees paid to Adventure China.
