Academic Summer Cambridge

Great news! Academic Summer in Cambridge is happening this summer 2020 for students age 9 to 17
 
We are excited to announce we are giving students the opportunity to join a summer camp in the UK this year in the famous university of Cambridge located at Abbey College Cambridge.  Cambridge is a good fit for Academic Summer as we want to inspire and challenge our students academically.
 
This summer will be different, with social distancing and good hygiene measures in place, but it is great for students to have a chance to get back into the classroom in a small and safe environment, and get ready for school in September.
 
The UK Government have changed their guidelines and some countries are able to travel without the need to quarantine for 14 days. You can find the list of countries here to check if your market is included. The Government have said new countries will continue to be added so we hope to see more markets being able to join us through August. 
 
Our camp in Cambridge will be small with a special family feel. It will be run by our experienced staff who are permanent members of our team.
 
 We are offering inspiring learning based on CLIL methodology.

Leisure in Cambridge 

 
Cambridge is a small safe city and we are planning a great leisure programme that will be on our website soon. We will be exploring Cambridge as well as enjoying the local countryside and the great outdoors. We will stay away from crowded and busy places so students can enjoy activities and trips safely.
 
Students will have the opportunity to visit cities such as Oxford, Norwich and Warwick. There will be lots of fun activities such scavenger hunts, hiking, drama, keep fit, debating and quizzes. We also have activities to help students develop their leadership skills.
