Academic Camp releases free magazine to help families

The founder of leading holiday camp provider, Academic Camp, has written a free magazine aimed at parents who are looking for opportunities to improve the educational and pastoral experiences of their children.

The magazine, Reach for Your Future, has been written by founder Helen Lami in response to an increasing demand from parents to widen the experiences of their children. Helen says the useful information will help parents better understand the long-term value of sending their children on summer camps.

“The right camp can provide invaluable experiences for the young people who take part in them,” says Helen. “Adventure mixed in with robust academic challenge in a new environment, with people they don’t know in any other part of their life, can have a profound effect on how they see things."

Helen is motivated by a drive to support young people to become resilient, determined and confident, so they understand their own potential whilst also grasping the need for hard work and humility.

Helen has been running educationally-focused summer camps for the last 15 years and founded Academic Summer in 2008 when she realised there was a shortage of high-quality summer academic experiences for young people. She has since grown the business to be a global organisation and the firm now provides school holiday camp experiences in the UK and Canada. Now under the name Academic Camp, almost 60 different nationalities came together in the Canadian camp this summer.

“Parents have the reassurance of knowing that Academic Camp has a first-class reputation and an excellent bill of health with the British Accreditation Council,” says Helen. “Providing superb experiences for the young people who spend time with us — experiences that will broaden their minds and further increase their opportunities — is the driving force behind everything we do."

Subjects in the magazine include how to apply for Oxbridge, comparing A levels with the International Baccalaureate known as the IB Diploma as well as the story behind Helen setting up Academic Camp. The magazine can be found here.
