From the teachers, to the kitchen and cleaning staff, everyone who works in this camp speaks English either natively or fluently, and all workshops and activities outside of the classroom take place only in English!
Outside of the class room, you'll get to explore the mountains, swim in the lake, sing around the campfire and much, much more - all in English, of course!
