English Summer Camp

12 - 16 July 2021  We invite children ages 9-14

Our aim is to communicate through English throughout the whole week. Children will improve their language competencies mainly by listening and speaking. They will also have an opportunity to have one to one meetings with the native speaker should they need to improve certain areas,e.g. grammar.

The camp is aimed at children, who can understand English language well and initiate basic every-day conversations, e.g. shopping, buying train tickets, et. 

Forest School 

English Summer Camp

During the Forest Summer Camp children will have a chance to practice English language, as we will only use English language to communicate. We will immerse in nature and explore the local Antoniuk forest. Our aim is to enable children build connection with nature, experience the benefits of sepening time in the forest, strenghtening their physical activity and building community - all of it is necessary to have healthy and happy children. 

 

Children will have a chance to strenghten their fine and gross motor skills by taking part in outdoor games and activities, widen their knowledge of wildlife, as well as engage in creative process of working with wood and making forest artifacts.
