About the local hosting organizationThe summer linguistic camp “Mirrors of Albion” traditionally runs since 2001 with international participation. The host organization is a language school INTERLINGUA. Aim of the camp is widening horizons of young pupils and open for them a large world with various cultures and countries. Camp programme includes daily classes for kids and teens dedicated to regional studies programs - to get acquainted with various countries through films, songs, stories and plays. For elder children the program is aimed at personality development (exercises for developing skills of communication in a team, communication with peers, public speaking, overcoming communication barriers, communication with parents and adults, as well as the development of leadership qualities and the ability to defend their point of view in discussions).
About the volunteer workThe camp organizers would like to host volunteers from any part of our world with a wish to share their own culture and life experience. Volunteers will be asked to make presentations, games and communicate with kids and teens, answer questions, and take an active part in educational and creative life of the camp. The children may be interested in sport, dances, native language of the volunteer and he/she can teach them his/her native language, sport or whatever during the leisure time. During the day authorised teachers (not volunteers) look after the children and are responsible for them.
Local accommodationThe camp provides accommodation in buildings with all modern conveniences. There are twin and quad rooms. 5 meals a day provided. The area of the camp is securely fenced and guarded. Being with us in our linguistic camp will make your summer holiday fun, exciting and memorable.
