Camp structure:

This English summer camp has been organised for 18 years in different locations and it is very popular among Romanian pupils.

You’ll be expected to teach English through games, drama and other fun activities to students between the ages of 7-16 years old. However, it’s not your responsibility to look after the students and there will be teachers available to do this. The camp consists of around 170 students with around 12 trainers working with them, making the ratio one trainer to 15-20 children.

The timetable is very flexible and it is always planned and discussed with you in advance. They are dedicated to making your stay in Romania a memorable one. Students speak very good English so communication with them will not be a problem. However, the younger ones may need support and guidance sometimes but organisers and other teachers are there to help all the time. If you ever become stuck for ideas or just needs a little support, the camp organisers are always there to help.

Provisional timetable (subject to change):

9:30 – 12:30 – morning lessons (with half an hour break) – informal lessons: games, mime, debate, drama

12:30 – 14:30 – lunch break

15:00 – 18:30 – afternoon activities: hiking and trips / workshops (painting, music, drama, dance, sports etc.)

20:00 – 20:30 – informal staff meeting to plan activities for the next day

21:00 – evening activities: disco, karaoke, contests (trainers are expected to attend these activities alongside the children)

The activities reserved for afternoons and extra time are varied and depend on the trainers. If you have any interests or hobbies that could be transformed into workshops then you will be encouraged to be creative.
