Types of programs
Language camps for children and teenagers in England are very popular. Usually, programs are 24/7 they mean that the child is at the school/campus 24/7. By attending such a program, your child will gain a great deal of knowledge and new experiences: immersion in the English language environment, familiarity with the cultural life of England, and improvement of English through correct classical pronunciation in a short time. He will make many new friends here and will definitely continue to communicate with them afterwards, which will make it possible to correspond in English, which means he will gain motivation to learn the language further.

Spending an unforgettable vacation
There are also camps that offer full-time education, such as LAL. this is especially true when children travel to the UK with their parents. For parents, there are also suitable options, and such programs are called family programs. Parents and children can learn English and live together in the same language center. For example, such a program could take place at Kings Summer Moreton Hall.
The location of programs at school children's camps also varies,
Private school or college based
Based at our own language centers
Perhaps, first of all, it is necessary to say one of the most important things: in all British summer schools, the children are under 24/7 care. Therefore, from the moment of arrival to the moment of departure (again from the airport), the child will be supervised.
Young foreign guests in the UK usually stay in residences on the school grounds, in rooms that can accommodate 2-4 people. Some camps offer the opportunity to live with a British family near the school. However, according to eyewitnesses, living with other students in student housing is more interesting and fun for the children.
The school provides three meals a day. If the children are taken on a field trip - half or full day - then you don't have to worry in this case: each child is given a bag of food ("impressive" sandwiches and drinks).
Studying and living in the UK is not cheap. However, this is mainly due to the high level of programs, the effectiveness of the education, the professionalism of the staff (teachers and curators), the large selection of extracurricular activities (sports or creative), the extensive program of short trips and the comfortable living conditions.
The cost of the daily program includes the chosen type of accommodation, full board, English language courses (20, 25, 30 lessons available) and entertainment program: the boys go on sightseeing trips, actively participate in sports competitions, develop their dancing, creativity and team qualities.
The daily program does not include accommodation and weekend excursions. Meals are served at lunch only.
Prices depend on the program chosen, type of accommodation, arrival date and number of weeks.
