Sharing is caring!

The British Council’s Holiday Study Camps are an opportunity for your child to explore the world beyond English and develop the 21st century competencies needed for academic and future success.

The Holiday Study Camps use English as a way to explore the world around us, developing problem solving, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity.

Each week, learners explore a different theme while developing their written or spoken communication skills. Through these exciting topics, learners build their knowledge of the world around them and ignite their love of learning.

Camps are available for Early Years, Primary and Secondary-aged learners.
