Italian Summer Camp Counselor Programme confirmed for 2018
We’re delighted to announce that we will again be offering our Italian Summer Camp Counselor programme in 2018. For the last two summers, a number of participants have headed to the wonderful mountains of Piedmont, arranging fun language activities at a children’s summer camp.
This year’s programme also features an exciting update, with an extended duration – including a second placement at a seaside camp in addition to the mountain camp! That means the programme will last for seven weeks: four weeks at the mountain camp, one week seaside break (including two day tour of Tuscany) followed by a final two weeks at a seaside camp.
Being a Camp Counselor
Camp Counselors arrange fun language activities for children/teenagers and teach simple things in English through playing and talking together. The camps arrange sport activities with specific sport leaders. Camp Counselors are there to improve children’s language skills - you do not need to be sport trainers, but assist during sporting activities. The programme is a fantastic opportunity to gain first-hand teaching experience.
You can read more about former participants experiences here:
