Summer School in Guadeloupe

My daughter wants to join the summer course arranged by by an organization called Vision which will hold a summer camp in Guadeloupe in July because it is French spoken and all the participants have to do the community work for this city. I have no knowledge about this place and want to know if a 17 years girl is safe to go there by herself from London.

Hi there,

Can't comment on the Vision camps. Can comment on Gua. It's as safe or unsafe as any other relatively poor Caribbean island. Some level of petty crime yes but with good countermeasures (e.g. not walking alone in dark back alleys at night) should be quite okay even at her age. We felt quite safe there even after dark.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Thank you for your information. I will try to obtain more information from the organization.

Guadeloupe is a French oversea department. We are French citizens. The rules are the French ones. It's as safe or unsafe as any part of London. With some common sense your daughter will feel safe. Feel free to ask for more information.
