English & educational
summer camp activities
Where English learning continues outside the classroom
At ECS summer camps, children and teenagers continue learning English outside the classroom during every part of the day: in educational workshops, through sports and games, during social activities and excursions, on our adventure summer camp and in the residential boarding accommodation.
For further information on each aspect of activities on our English Language summer camps and courses for children and teenagers please follow the links below:
Sports and games
Our summer holiday English camp includes a fun and varied sports programme for all our pupils. Kids and teens will play sports most days and can try up to eight different sports each week.
Through sports, pupils learn the fun of friendly competition and how to work as a team. They learn new physical skills and strengthen the relationship between body and mind. They begin to understand that practice makes perfect and discover the great feelings of energy and relaxation that come from regular exercise.
Our school has excellent sports facilities on campus. Sports at ECS include swimming, football, touch rugby, volleyball, basketball, badminton, softball and more. In addition we offer professional tennis coaching and professional golf lessons for children and teenagers.
Social activities are arranged every evening during our English summer activity camp. They include quizzes, shows, films, crazy sports and treasure hunts across our countryside campus.
Our social summer camp activities are lots of fun, help pupils develop their confidence and broaden horizons through mixing and making new friends with children and teenagers from different countries.
Appropriate activities are arranged for each age group and sometimes all ages come together for an extravaganza such as the ECS English Country Fayre and the End of Course Review.
Trips and excursions
Taking trips to local towns, historical sites, beaches and parks is an exciting part of joining our English summer camp in England, UK.
On our summer camp excursions, children and teens experience local history and culture, connect through shared experiences and practise their English outside the classroom. This is great English immersion.
There are lots of interesting places to visit near our school, including fun seaside towns, the beautiful Dorset coast and the lively towns and cities.
We also run two additional trips: a weekend trip to London (for ages 13+)and a half-day trip to ancient Stonehenge (for ages 11+). These trips have limited places and are booked so be sure to book your place in advance.
