About our camps

With over 7 years of experience, the BritTeen Adventure summer camps offer students in grades 3 - 8 (9 - 14 years old) a friendly environment where they can practice English, develop essential life skills and expand their knowledge through themed interactive workshops and other fun activities in English.
