After booking your course you will take the placement test on your first day of school. This will define the level and suitable class for the English language course.
Over the years we’ve learned that the best way for campers to make a smooth transition to life away from home is to be busy from morning until night, caught up in a programme that’s dynamic and fun. Some children get absorbed in right away, others take a little more time – but our team are practiced at encouraging children to join in and make friends, making the first-time camper’s experience a fun-filled adventure.
We recommend to give the children a few days to settle in before contacting them. But if a parent needs to get in touch, one can email us – or if prefer to phone,then call the camp by midday Monday to Thursday to arrange a suitable time for an evening call.
We’ll send you a packing list once you’ve booked. We recommend you leave iPods, mobile phones, mp3 players, laptops etc. at home as we can’t look after them and they’re not covered by our insurance. Children should bring their own suitable outerwear, such as a good waterproof anorak , footwear and casual clothes, including full-length trousers and long-sleeve t-shirts. We provide all the specialist safety set and equipment needed for our activities. Please see our list of items here.
They can – but in case of loss, theft or damage and to help prevent homesickness, we recommend that they don’t. We can’t accept responsibility for phones and they must not be used during activities, meal times or after children have retired for the night.
All specialist equipment (conforming to European standards) is supplied by the centre, as are approved buoyancy aids and lifejackets, which must be worn for all watersports. At English Quest Camp we are continually updating our safety equipment to reflect current best practices.
Campers are made aware of any camp rules upon arrival and reminded of these where appropriate throughout the stay.
Our students are universally impressed with the quality of food on our trips. We believe it is very important for our students to eat well! We try very hard to provide them with plenty of good food because we know how hungry teenagers can get.
In addition to daily English language tuition , during the first week we will organise lots of sports and other fun activities, which will keep you busy from morning till late evening. During the second week you will enjoy the rock climbing, mountain biking, , arts and crafts workshops, and Orienteering Game. At least once you’ll climb to the top of a mountain with amazing views. You will be challenged, but we won’t push you beyond your abilities.
At the end of your English course we will give you an English Quest Summer Courses certificate which states the type of course you followed and the duration as well as the level of English you have achieved.
