Our unique seasonal programs emphasize learning, creativity, and leadership. Camps are hosted by local private schools, museums, and organizations and provide an enriching educational experience as well as regular interaction with American students. Students experience authentic American life while staying with a host family in the local area. Program participants will also be immersed in the American metropolitan and collegiate environment when they partake in group tours at the conclusion of the program.
Attending Camps With American Students
Summer session students have the chance to participate in a variety of camps and activities along with American kids. With options such as robotics camp, multimedia camp, visual arts camp, sports camp, leadership camp and more, students will have many opportunities to befriend other American students.
Camps typically run in the mornings and are followed by an English class or study session at the BGE office, where children learn about the local area, its history, and other cultural tidbits.
Our summer camp includes tours of Boston, New York City, and Washington D.C. In Boston, students will visit famous landmarks and points of interest including Fenway Park, Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, Bunker Hill, the New England Aquarium, and the Museum of Science. In New York City, students visit the famous Statue of Liberty, Central Park, Times Square, Broadway, Wall Street, and more. At the conclusion of the program students take a trip to Washington D.C., where they can see the architectural treasures of our nation's capitol: the Lincoln Memorial, Smithsonian Collection, the Capitol Building, the White House, and the Library of Congress.
