Camp Iskra

About

Camp Iskra is a beautiful language camp located in the pine woods of Northwest Russia, on the bank of the Mologa River. Every summer we invite kids to take part in our language programs - learning English, German, and, starting this year, Spanish, French and Chinese. For the past few years, we've had a number of foreign volunteers to help us teach languages. Our camp has been a loving and welcoming host to all of them, and each and every one of them said it had been an unforgettable experience.

Yes, I recommend this program

Unbelievable summer in Russia

It's my first time to do an overseas volunteer job. I've never imagine that I would make so many friends here and experience an amazing period with Russian kids.
Iskra is a beautiful large camp, located in a wide forest with a river around. There are entertainment facilities and comfortable living conditions. The food provided in the canteen is also delicious. Sometimes I have the opprtunity to enjoy the sunshine on the beach and swimming in the river.
We had an international team, with young people from France,Egypt, Ghana and China. Every morning we would lead children from English groups to do morning exercise and assembling. After that, we would join the classes to help them learn about writing English letters, introduce themselves in English etc. additionally, the all camp activities are also interesting and impressive. Sometimes we will also design activities by our selves and teach children to play together.
It's a remarkable experience for me. I do hope my recommendation will be useful to people who also want to do volunteer jobs.

What would you improve about this program?
Maybe different teaching ways should be used in different age groups.
