Shall we sign up the kids for a Greek Language Summer Camp this year?
We love our computer screens. However, there is nothing like learning in nature and making friends and memories in Greece that will last for a lifetime. For those of you who are still in doubt here are just a few of the numerous benefits that a Summer Camp offers to children.
- Friendships and Social Skills
Talk to any of the children who participated in the Greek Language Summer Camps of the past. While some of them will talk about horse riding and how much they loved a lot of the activities they did there, all of them will mention the Greek friends they made and the bonds they created. It may seem scary at first and quite a few kids find the first days at the Camp challenging. However, within a couple of days kids take social risks by approaching and making new friends. In this way, they become more independent and they get a great self-esteem boost. Plus they go through a fun experience and make memories that bond them with their new friends for life.
- Fitness and Health
Do not get us wrong, we do love technology since it helps us do what we love and brings us close to all of our wonderful students around the world. However, children nowadays do spend a lot of time physically inactive. A Summer Camp is the perfect way to awaken your child’s craving for physical activity. Through activities that feel like movie adventures like treasure hunts, kids who take part in a Summer Camp have the chance to use all their senses and muscles and spend a few weeks in the summer being fit and active in a very physical way. Who knows? Maybe this will inspire some of them to stay active in winter as well.
- Learn Greek in nature
When was the last time your children spent a day of learning in nature? The Greek Language Summer Camp gives the chance to children who spend most of their year in front of screens to spend a few days closer to nature. And while we do love our computer screens, a break is always beneficial. Especially when this breaks means learning Greek in nature!
- Authentic Language Learning Opportunities
The aim of our Greek Language Summer Camp is to provide students with the opportunity to produce and hear authentic language. Imagine that your children will be speaking or hearing Greek all day. In class but most importantly out of class. They will hear authentic dialogues between native Greeks, they will have to express themselves in Greek to ask for something, they will play in Greek with native Greek children and by the end of their stay they will be more confident with spoken Greek than you could ever imagine!
This summer we learn Greek in Greece. This summer we reconnect with our Greek friends at the Greek Language Summer Camp in Corinth! The enrollments continue. Find out more here
