A typical day in English summer camps for international students includes morning classes, where children learn to speak freely, read and write and comprehend the English language. Further activities imply daytime activities: excursions, sports games, or creative activities. In the evening, children are involved in making a movie or a fashion show, a disco or a quiz, “Horror Night” or a barbecue, karaoke or comedy sketches.
On weekends in English language summer camps for international students excursions are provided. Children not only visit neighboring cities and neighborhoods but can also spend the whole day at the museum or sightseeing. During excursions, children have an opportunity to communicate with native speakers that are quite fruitful for mastering language skills. Many English summer camps also offer an option for a day program – the child goes to English classes from morning until 17:00 and then returns to the hotel to his parents. England and the USA are especially popular for family holidays in English.

Vacations at English summer camps in the USA
As for English summer camps for international students in the United States, then there are several main directions available. Firstly, these are summer camps at the universities of Harvard, Stanford, Yale, UCLA. If your child already knows the language well, then he can spend holidays abroad studying subjects in English: from traditional lessons in Maths, literature, art, physics, to non-standard ones – forensics, robotics, creative writing, and architecture. This type of summer program abroad means living on campus, attending courses at the university with professors, preparing project works. All this, of course, does not interfere with the other main purpose of summer holidays abroad – excursions and trips.
