I would strongly recommend this program for English native speakers living/traveling Europe at the time of the camps. It is a worthwhile way to make an impact with second language learners while also engaging likeminded native speakers from many corners of the globe. I did a junior and adult program which although having different energy levels and programmatic constitutions they are fun for different reasons. Teens are always a hoot and adults provide for stimulating conversations.
How can this program be improved?
Use some of the structured conversational activities from the adult program with the juniors as well - they could benefit from more focused speaking sessions. Also, incentivise native speakers with a small stipend considering the number of hours put in (and personal cost by way of hostels and travel) as well as the money participants pay for the camp.
Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
