Getting the balance right between work and fun with Academic Summer Camps

Getting the balance right between work and fun with Academic Summer Camps

Academic Summer Camps know that when it comes to getting the best results in learning it’s important to get the balance right between work and fun.

That's why in addition to full and half-day trips, after the classroom, students will participate in NEW! elective activities and Be a Leader.

Be a Leader is a CPD accredited leadership course where students experience lecture-style learning and group activities designed to develop lifelong skills. Participants work together to discover and develop communication, negotiation, problem-solving and presentation skills. The aim is for all participants to feel happy, confident and able to undertake tasks they never thought themselves capable of.

Elective afternoons allow students to choose their favourite activities so they are only ever doing something that excites them. No longer will they have to stand at the side of the soccer pitch wishing they were baking a cake or acting as a tree in the drama production when they could be making fires and learning survival skills.

Academic Summer Camps have an elective for everyone:
Get Ready for University: Gain a competitive advantage and pick up top tips to help get ready for university.
