Camp Philosophy:

We believe that one of the greatest advantages of its camps is the chance it gives campers to meet, integrate with and practice English with campers and staff of different nationalities. Our camp is an “English” learning camp so campers are required to use English at all times. Campers are also expected to participate in activities with campers of different nationalities. The world is getting smaller every day and through their experience at the camp, campers will have the chance to get to know, and to understand and appreciate people of different races and cultures and thereby learn to adapt to and appreciate the globalization of their world.

 

Participants:

Students in this program come from many different countries including Mexico, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Italy, Germany, Venezuela, Korea and Brazil.

Students sharing twin rooms are assigned to a room based on age, start date and nationality. We pair students of different nationalities whenever possible, but will take into consideration roommate requests when possible, though we are not able to guarantee this. The camp’s staff lives with the students to provide 24 hour supervision.
Campers will enjoy daily buffet style meals served in our residential dining facilities. Unlimited servings, a variety of specialty entrees, side dishes, salad, and dessert bars offer something for every camper.
