Summer camps are said to play an important part in a child’s growth, altering their behavior for the next six months. Even if children engage in enrichment courses, they are outside their usual classroom setting and shed their fear of failure when they realize they’re not being graded for their performance, yet have a variety of opportunities to excel.
An overseas camp will result in a completely different summer experience for your child as they travel to a foreign country, live with a multitude of children, both local and international, and learn to cross international boundaries via the common English language. Children will return from their foreign excursions with renewed confidence, rich tales to share, and new friends across borders. An overseas summer camp is a safe way to let children step into the world.
