Doing Educo summer camps has been an amazing experience for me. I have so many wonderful memories of the places I've seen and the people I've lived or worked with.
Staying with host families means you experience real Italian life. Expect to be shown around the local area, fed wonderful food, introduced to people in the town etc. Everywhere I've stayed the hospitality has been amazing.
Camp locations vary, so you get to stay in tiny villages, big cities, and everything in between. My very first camp was in a remote area and the second was in Milan. They were both equally charming in different ways.
You work alongside people from all over the world in camps. This means you can represent your country by bringing your own culture to the camp. This is particularly true for Culture Day, which is one of the afternoon activities. You can have so much fun. Water Games in another popular afternoon activity which is a load of fun.
Each day starts with a morning circle where you sing songs that you learned at orientation. This is daunting at first but there is so much support from the main training team to help you. Bring energy and enthusiasm and you'll have an amazing time!
Everything you need is in the training manual. The core team are all very approachable and can help if you need any guidance while at camp. Camp Directors are always on hand and there are also Camp Helpers to provide extra support to both tutors and campers.
