N.B. Re: Dress Code when in Cambodia
The dress code for in-class sessions at the
SummerCampCambodia training centres and throughout the orientation
is ‘smart casual and comfortable’. The dress code at the placement
schools is as follows:
- Long pants or trousers or shorts that cover your knees
- Camp Thailand Polo T- Shirt with capped shoulders
- Socks and closed toe shoes
- Skirt or dress that covers your knees or longer or Long smart trousers or “Elephant” print trousers or smart shorts that cover your knees
- Camp Thailand Polo T – Shirt with capped shoulders or blouse/shirt which covers the shoulders and midriff – (no plunging necklines)
- Closed toe shoes or sandals but no flip-flops
- Tattoos should be covered
- Piercings should be removed whilst teaching
- A quick-dry towel will come in handy if you are teaching in rooms without A/C
In general, Cambodian people
dress very conservatively, and as guests in their schools, it’s
important that we adhere to this dress code, in order not to offend.
Please note that some schools may have more formal dress codes than
Important Note about clothing when walking around Camp Cambodia or your host Cambodia city/town:
Please remember to wear clothes that are respectful to the local culture and not offensive to the local Khmer (Cambodian) people - T-shirts that cover your shoulders, shorts that come down to and cover your knees- No bikini's, string vest tops or hot pants allowed. No plunging necklines and if you are wearing tight fitting leggings or slacks you should wear a long shirt or T-shirt that is not tucked in and covers the form of the upper part of your lower body. You will be asked to change if you are wearing any items that would be considered offensive under Cambodian culture. If you are out at clubs or bars in the evening or at the beaches the dress code is more relaxed than what you need to wear when walking around Camp Cambodia or out and about the city/town.
