Summer Camps are a fantastic opportunity for young learners (6-18 years old) to learn or improve a new language in a completely different environment that offers much more than just classes. Our Spanish and English summer camps aim to provide our campers with lots of language input, sports, a complete and highly rated evening entertainment programme, weekend excursions, educational projects and many opportunities to make friends with other learners from all over the world. It further allows them to develop a positive attitude towards the new language. We aim to create educational summer camps that go beyond language education, but also focus on independence, social interaction and tidiness.
We operate 6 themed summer camps in 4 different venues, 1 for Spanish learners and 5 for English. These summer camps offer the opportunity to learn Spanish or English in full immersion environments. Each camp has its own learning style and different environment.
SPANISH CAMPS + JUNIOR PROGRAMMES
International Camp: Located in wonderful El Puerto de Santa Maria on the coast, this camp is the ultimate camp experience for learners of Spanish, offering the wonderful opportunity to learn Spanish with children from all round the world. International Camp takes place in the same venue as our English camps for Spanish children — Family and Go Camp — meaning the camp offers a great opportunity for real language exchange between the campers. In International camp you can follow a residential camp programme which mixes learning Spanish with sports, activities and evening entertainments. Alternatively, you can live with a Spanish family and attend the camp for class and sports activities but spend evenings with the Spanish family. Another option is to come with your whole family — see family programme option.
DAY CAMP: Also in this camp exists the option to attend just classes or classes and activity as a Half or Full Day Camper.
