Hi Cameleers, wannabe cameleers, camel owners & camel lovers…


Are you tired of the endless & time consuming ‘google-ing’ for good camel information? In the end still not ending up with the answers you were looking for?


We know how frustrating and overwhelming it can be hearing contradictive camel information from various sources only leaving you more confused than when you first started – Sound like you? We’ve been there too when we started on our camel journey.


Where’s all the good reliable camel information at?

Right here – in our ‘camel community’ 


We’ve got a camel training style with different levels to suit each interest and budget. From bonding with a camel to going on a camel trek or expedition – we can help!


Over many years of learning how a camel thinks (their phycology) and watching them in their natural herd environments we’ve developed the Camel Connection Trust Based Camel Training® a proven method that trains camels (one hump or two) in a non-violent and non-dominating way using a method based on mutual trust and respect.

Comes with a warning though – camels are addictive!


Right here is where you can get all the Know How! From keeping your own camels to becoming a professional – there are no limits at the Cameleer Academy.

Camelology, The Basics

Our in-person, 3 day, hands on Camel Connection Trust Based Camel Training® course/clinics is where you will learn about how a camel thinks (their psychology) in order to build up a strong connection of trust and understanding so you can begin to instruct the camel to do things such as sit (hoosh/kush), stand on command, respectfully walk with you  and respond to headstall and verbal cues.


This is the best place to start if you’re considering camels, already have camels or simply want to learn a non-diminating and gentle approach to training and handling camels. We also cover basic husbandry information – how to care for camels – which includes our Introduction To Camel Husbandry eBook.
