Are you in the 14-18 age group and do you want to improve your English in an international group of young people? This is a camp for you to have fun with less work and more speaking. Whatever level you have, like beginner, poor, under intermediate, you will speak a lot to improve your English. Apart from the light daily work, there will be 3 hours outdoor English lessons, night games, afternoon language activities, cultural night and national dance activities. There will be Turkish youngsters as well in the group. So you will have a chance to learn a lot about them and you will introduce your culture and country. You will play games altogether.

Volunteers and participants will clean the beach / campside and do similar activities together.
