Building on our success in Dubai, United Arab Emirates over the past 17 years, we offer a residential summer school and camp in London, the United Kingdom in partnership with our UK operator. Boys and girls of all nationalities have the opportunity to expand on their experience with us by participating in our Dubai residential camp or our London residential camp or both! Students registered for the London camp remain under the watchful eye and in the care of our Third Parents throughout their stay in the UK and until their safe return home. Participants also enjoy the added option of travelling together in a group to London from Dubai and back accompanied by our Third Parents.
The London Summer Camp
Our camp in the United Kingdom is located at the stunning campus of St. Mary’s University College in the safe settings of the affluent neighborhood of Strawberry Hill in southwest London, close to the river Thames and a stone’s throw away from Richmond. Founded in 1850, the campus boasts traditional buildings that encompass modern, state-of-the art facilities that in 2012 hosted many teams for the London Olympics and thus meet the highest standards of quality, security, and safety.
As is typical of our Dubai standards, student accommodation has been arranged in safe and secure on-campus dormitories, with round-the-clock supervision by a specialist team of educators, to ensure a safe, enhanced experience of camp-life in a miniature society based on friendship and family spirit. Just like our summer camp in Dubai, the London camp is managed and supervised by educators in addition to our Third Parents that will be escorting students from the Dubai camp to the London camp as an added option. These specialist teachers become akin to ‘Third Parents’ to their students, living with them, catering to their day-to-day needs, and providing them with a support program that emphasizes character-building and empowerment. The camp is distinguished for its progressive and unique concept of Third Parent, and its educators apply the fundamental ‘caring’ aspect to all students.
Daytime Language Classes
Our London camp offers an academic program designed to improve the English language skills of its campers. Daily daytime classes are held for twenty lessons per week. The program offers a task-based syllabus, which has been designed in order to present new language in addition to consolidating learners’ existing knowledge. The topics chosen for each project have been meticulously selected to ensure that learners are actively stimulated throughout the course, whilst having ample opportunities to utilize the language in both controlled and freer practice sessions. Each lesson will focus on a communicative approach developing learners’ productive and receptive skills.
Recreational Activities, Competitive Leagues, and Trips
During the day and evenings, the camp offers students a vibrant program that includes poetry fairs, art shows, science exhibitions, games, competitive league sports, painting and artwork, music and singing, computer and technology clubs and much more. Weekly visits are organized to leisure and cultural locations around London and the neighboring towns with weekend trips to other parts of United Kingdom.
