About our English Summer Camp:
This English summer camp has been organized for 18 years in different locations and it is very popular among Romanian pupils.
The British trainers/volunteers are expected to teach English through games, drama and other fun activities to the pupils (aged between 7 and 16). However, it is not the trainer’s responsibility to look after the children outside daily activities. There will be teachers to do that.
The timetable is very flexible and it is always planned and discussed with the trainers in advance. We are dedicated to making the trainers’ stay in Romania a memorable one. Organizers and other teachers are there to help all the time. We think that there is no right or wrong way to teach and we believe that each British trainer brings his or her own style and ideas. If a trainer ever becomes stuck for ideas or just needs a little support, the camp organizers are always there to help and offer guidance.
A typical day for a trainer begins with morning lessons, lunch break, afternoon activities: hiking and trips /workshops and 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 they have any interests or hobbies that could be transformed into workshops then we would encourage trainers to be creative.
