There is no minimum age for the Cambodia trip. We do ask that if you are under 18 that you have with you a parent or guardian. We also run family trips, so if you are a family with children we encourage you to bring them, regardless of age. Last year, our leaders Phil and Amy Cunningham took their three children (ages 3-12) and we had 4 other families come with their young kids.
Please email us if you have any further questions about age minimum for participants and families.
