At Oxford Summer Camp, local English children join our Multi Activity programme on weekdays, we call these children Buddies. They are a key part of camp and aid the English language development of our international students. All buddies are carefully selected for their interest in the programme and making new international friends.
Buddies join in the last 45 minutes of the morning lessons which focus on communication and working as part of a team. The Buddies then participate in the afternoon activities allowing for further integration on camp.
Similarly, international students on our English and Specialist Academy programme will be integrated with native speaking children for the entirety of the Academy. Our partners, Academies of Sport predominantly run the Academies for local British children which means international students can immerse themselves in English language whilst doing an activity they love.
By working with native speakers of their own age, our international students practice using English in real-life situations which greatly improves their confidence. Our Oxford Summer Camp Buddies also stay for the evening activities and join the Friday excursion so all international students, on all our programmes, have the opportunity to make friendships that last long after the summer has ended.
