Summer camps for kids and teenagers
In the United Kingdom especially popular are summer language programs for children and teenagers, which allow children to improve their English Language level, have a great time and make friends around the world. Usually these programs are held on the territory of private boarding schools, when schools are out for summer vacation. Most of the programs starts in early July and are up to the middle – end of August (in June schools are still busy, as holidays in private schools in England start in July). These programs are for children ages 8 to 18 years, although a limited number of language camps accept children from age 5.
Children can stay in campus from 2 weeks and more. School representatives will meet your child in the airport on arrival day and take a child back the airport on departure day. Programs have full board opportunities – breakfast, lunch and dinner, lessons and recreational activities on the school grounds, and weekend excursions days.
English lessons usually are in the mornings. In the afternoons, children have various adventures – organised games, contests, sporting events, cinema visits, bowling, excursions and much more.

English for children and their parents
For those who are not yet ready to send a child to the United Kingdom alone, there are English courses for parents and children. Programs are running for children from age 3 and for teenagers too. Parents and children will be in different groups. Accommodation for parents can be arranged in a hotel or ether in English families. Lessons for children usually start and finish a bit earlier, so parents can take a child to the school and meet them after. After lessons you will have some time to see the city and go to the excursions. For lovers to spend your holidays in the country, programs for parents and children also are in the closed boarding schools, where tuition, accommodation and activities for children and parents are held on school grounds. Recreational activities on the school grounds allow young parents to devote a little time for themselves, while children have fun and learn English language.
