The summer holiday is the perfect time for camp in the UK. England is a great place for a child to have a vacation and to learn something new. Our London programme is ideal, because it gives the student a chance also to explore one of the world’s great cities. There are plenty of interesting activities to stimulate confidence and imagination. Of course, the key is for the student to be happy and comfortable, whilst learning. Our goal is to provide the best for our students, with good location and facilities, competent staff and stimulating activities.
Summer holidays is also a great time for families to be together. This is the reason why we now offer the family programme. Families can share a family room, or the student can share accommodation with other students and parents have a separate room. Parents can choose to have English lessons. They can also participate in excursions and other activities, or they can plan their own programme.
We ensure that students get a varied and nutritious diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables and water. Meals are mainly served buffet style with choices of meat or vegetarian food, with desserts, fruit and drinks. Students are encouraged to eat as much as they like.
With our diligent care, we trust our students will have a healthy and enjoyable stay. However, should medical situations arise, we are prepared. Minor cuts and bruises and minor illnesses will be dealt by appropriate first aid staff at the Centre. In more serious cases medical professionals will be called urgently, or students may be taken to local health clinics or hospitals. In case of any serious injury or health problem, parents will be notified, and appropriate treatment arranged. Parents must notify us if their child has any existing health problem or disability, or if they are taking any regular medication, so that we can make any necessary arrangements. Every student must be covered by medical insurance before starting the programme.
Security and Safety
Welfare workers are on duty 24 hours a day at the Centre. These are friendly, caring and experienced people, qualified to deal with students issues. They give advice and assistance, and no problem should go unnoticed. Their task is to keep a close watch on students to ensure their safety and wellbeing. All staff must have a background and Police record check before they are employed on the programme. There are no ultra-risky sports involved in the timetable. Full instructions will be given to students before each trip to make sure they are aware of safety issues.
Students Code of Conduct
There is a sensible code of conduct for students. Students will be allowed to have as much fun as possible, but they must observe basic rules. We do not allow smoking or drinking alcohol. No bad language or bullying is allowed. Our student welfare workers will keep a very close watch to make sure none of this happens. All students will be accompanied by a member of staff or group leader whilst outside the Centre.
Clothing and Equipment
Students should bring comfortable clothing and shoes, with some clothes for special events. This is a list of essential items for a one week programme:
• Shoes: 1 pair of sports shoes, 1 pair of sandals, 1 pair of slippers
• Day wear: 5 or 6 changes of light clothing, 2 outfits for special events, 2 changes of warm clothing
• Sportswear: 1 gym shirts, 1 gym shorts, 1 swimsuits
• Nightwear: 2 changes of nightwear
• Underwear: Daily change of underwear
• Miscellaneous: Daily change of socks. Toiletries, hair brush and comb
• Equipment: pens, pencils, colouring pencils, painting set, notebook; drawing book, flashlight (torch) with
• Mobile phones, tablets and Ipads are allowed if students have them already. The students are responsible for their safekeeping.
Safekeeping of money and valuables
Students should not need an excessive amount of money while on the trip. This is the parents' decision, but pocket money of 3 euros per day should be adequate. Money should be given to the teacher for safekeeping, and that will be put in a safety deposit box, until the student needs it. The student can also give other valuables to their teacher for safekeeping.
