Italian Summer Camp Counselor Programme confirmed for 2019

We’re delighted to confirm that we will again be offering our Italian Summer Camp Counselor programme in 2019. 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.

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.
