Every summer for three weeks from the middle of June to the beginning of July, English World runs fantastic summer camps for children from 6 to 18 years old at Norcenni Girasole Club Camping Village in the neighbouring town of Figline Valdarno. The summer camps last for a total of 40 hours a week from 9am to 5pm from Monday to Friday. Courses are specially created for the children who attend the camp by our experienced mother tongue English teachers with the age group of the children in mind.
For the primary and secondary school children who attend the summer camp we adopt the Total Physical Response method of teaching, making the lessons dynamic, stimulating and great fun. The children are involved in team games, drawing, miming, running and touching, passing resources around a circle and changing places in addition to completing written work and exercises to test and consolidate their learning. In addition to the English lessons they also do at least 10 hours of English games in the open spaces of the campsite, by the river, while walking through the wooded areas and elsewhere, to revise the material from their daily lessons. Students over 14 years old are given stimulating projects to complete which require them to speak to people who work at the site in English and with the visitors of many nationalities.
The price of the summer camps includes entrance into the campsite, a three course lunch, a morning or afternoon snack, 10 hours of lessons a week, games in the specially reserved basketball court, minigolf, daily use of the swimming pools, activities in the adventure playground which include a walk amongst the treetops (for children of 9 years old or over), trampolines, bungee trampolines and quad bikes, plus a welcome gift and a diploma of participation.
