Whoever thought summer camp could be this fun and educational?  Global Volunteers first experimented with the concept of summer English language “camps” at the request of our Poland community partner in 1991.  At the bucolic setting of Reymontowka, the itinerary was designed with equal measures of learning and adventure. Children from the Siedlce district (many of whom we taught in classrooms during the school year) were offered a coveted 2-week opportunity to work with native English speakers in a decidedly camp-like setting.  The free-form program offered campers an English-language “bridge” between the school years to keep their skills fresh.  It was such a success for students and volunteers alike, that we expanded the program to other countries thereafter.

This album from recent summer camps in Greece, Italy, Poland and Tanzania captures the predictable energy, excitement and educational value of English language summer camps abroad:
