Travel Sport Camp, Italy:
Currently, Travel Sport Camp and its affiliate EduKick, host schools and camps in 11 different countries on four continents and continues to grow on a global scale. Travel Sport Camp offers year-long and 1/2 year-long sports boarding school camps for boys and girls from 11 years old in the cities of Perugia and Assisi, in the region of Umbria in central Italy.
What could be more exciting than to train in your favorite sport and study abroad in one of Italy’s most beautiful regions? Participants will have an opportunity to develop their athletic skills over an extended period of time and gain valuable and important lessons while being immersed in the study of the Italian culture and language. Sports trainings sessions are conducted at the Sports Center of Pontevalleceppi Athletic Club in Perugia.
Our sports training staff is comprised of professional, licensed coaches who have extensive experience teaching young athletes. We offer programs designed to provide participants with opportunities to develop and improve their athletic skills and abilities using cutting edge techniques and new methodology. At the same time, we teach the history and significance of the game, its nature, its development, and how perfecting or simply competing in it, requires great technical ability, quick mental processes, speed of execution, and personality.
Our high school, the Liceo Scientifico "Convitto Nazionale Principe di Napoli" (Grades 9-13) is legally recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education. The School is located in the upper part of the city of Assisi, near to the town center and all the evocative places which make the school stay in Assisi, very comfortable and stimulating. From this beautiful location, it's easy to enjoy the picturesque landscape of Umbria, immersed in art, history and tradition.
On campus living: Students are supported by a teacher-tutor who can monitor the growth of the student in all its many aspects: psychological, educational, emotional and social. Students are divided into teams or groups of 20-30 students each. Each group is assigned to a team composed of three or four teachers who are alternately and assist students in all stages and needs of the study and daily life in the school. Students have their own bright, well-equipped private rooms where they live.
Italian public and private universities are considered among the best in Europe. The long and ancient tradition of the Italian university is a guarantee of high quality teaching. Travel Sport Camp university age students will study Italian language at the prestigious, l’Università degli Studi di Perugia. Student athletes will attend 3 to 4 hours daily of Italian language instruction Monday through Friday for the duration of the program. Students engage in the appropriate language level coursework for three months before taking an exam in order to advance to the next level of language study offered at our affiliated University.
University students are provided charming apartments in green areas of the city of Perugia with a view of the old town and its countryside. The apartments also include a beautiful garden where all students can relax, study or enjoy nature. The apartments are 5 minutes walking distance from the city centre and the University and a short 15 minute bus ride from the training facilities. Rooms can accommodate two or three students and are equipped with every comfort. Our program director will always stay in touch with our staff to communicate any needs or problems concerning our students while abroad.
Travel Sport Camp distinguishes itself with its commitment to safety, security and supervision. Year-long and 1/2 year-long sports boarding school students have adult monitors/mentors assigned to them as part of the program for continual service, supervision and mentorship. Program rules and regulations are designed to ensure the safety and security of our participants (i.e. curfews, permission to exit regulations, etc). All participants are required to carry personal health insurance. During our technical training sessions we have on-site non-emergency-medical trainers and personnel who can provide basic athletic-injury care and support.
Travel Sport Camp prides itself on excellent communication and reporting. Our camp participants are provided with language progress reports. Year-long sports boarding school student-athletes will receive two (2) technical sport evaluation reports and two (2) academic reports (from the affiliated educational institution). The first reports are sent in January and the second upon the program's conclusion in June.
Travel Sports Camp also provides periodic behavioral/social updates from our Directors in the field. These reports are designed to serve as "updates" on general group activities, excursions, special events and any particular issues that may have transpired. The reports are often accompanied by digital photos or video clips that are emailed to parents for their review and enjoyment.
We provide and encourage all our participants to take part in a variety of socio-cultural activities. We will enjoy beautiful hikes in some of the most characteristic Italian cities like Rome, Siena, Perugia and Assisi. All full-day excursions include organization, transportation, tickets, meals and activities. We will also participate in the world famous Umbria International Jazz Festival and other regional events throughout the academic year.
