English Language Summer Camps offer young people, aged 18 to 25,
an exciting and interesting opportunity to visit a new country and
discover another culture.
150 to 200 young volunteers from the UK can spend up to six weeks
in Israel, working with groups of young people, aged 9 to 15, in
English Language Camps based within various communities.
Camps offer the young people from Israel the opportunity to improve
their English through the medium of various task-based indoor and
outdoor activities which allow interaction with native speakers.
Emphasis is placed on 'teaching English through fun'.
British volunteers plan and prepare activities such as sports, arts
and crafts, singing, games and drama to help the young Israelis
to develop their use and understanding of English, while having
a good time.
to one hundred Israeli young people attend the Camps, run in two
2-week sessions, throughout the country. Volunteers usually stay
with a host family while in Israel and after the programme have
the opportunity to tour Israel as a group. By working in local communities,
volunteers get first-hand experience of the local culture and customs
and can make new friends.

Ministry of Education and the British Council finance the project

Republic of Macedonia.
