A day at Camp

Each camp follows its own schedule.

  1. Flag raising happens just before breakfast.  Each camp sings the national anthem  of its country.
  2. Large Group: teaching session within each camp, all students are together.
  3. Small Group: students are divided in groups depending on their proficiency. This allows for a more targeted teaching.
  4. Bank/Kiosk: students have the opportunity during that time to go to the bank to get some euro and use them to buy snacks at the kiosk. They have to use their camp language.
  5. Cultural activity: the activity is original for each camp.
