Spring / Summer / Autumn / Winter English Camps for Children & Teenagers:

Photo of English Camps & Study Tours for Juniors in AustraliaWe have offered a wide range of English language camp programs on the Australian Gold Coast for students from 6 years of age to teenage students - plus parents and grandparents.

These are English cultural courses, which include improving your English language skills and living with an Australian family.

As we also offer registered courses for individual young students, this enables our programs to have meaningful learning content, with all summer camps English classes delivered by qualified teachers.

We can also offer Spring / Summer / Autumn / Winter activity programs for individual students, who can study full-time English and then choose to participate on the optional activity for that day, which may be anything from golf lessons to horse riding.

Our most popular programs offer English classes each morning, and activities each afternoon, with a full day activity on the weekends.

More academic programs, which tend to be favoured by mainland Chinese groups, focus on full-time English during the week, followed by full day theme park visits on the weekends.
