Summer Daycamp Program

Koç University English Language Center (ELC) for Kids Summer Daycamp Program offers its participants between the ages of 4-11, an opportunity to practice English in an everyday setting with native speaker mentors. Through a yearly changing curriculum full of activities geared towards physical, cognitive and social development, our campers practice English enthusiastically without the added pressure of examinations, proficiency and other barriers.

While changing our range of activities considering repeat participants, we make sure to maintain a balance between activities that emphasize physical, social and artistic abilities. Our goal is to keep our campers happily distracted while they practice English. We try to keep away from common sports with which participants might have had a previous knowledge of to avoid any unnecessary competition. We believe that the process of learning a foreign language and socializing; especially for young learners, benefit greatly from a judgment and competition-free environment thus we strive to keep our camp as fun and peaceful as possible.

As one of the essential pillars of our Summer Daycamp Programs; our mentors are chosen by psychologists and teachers in charge of the program among native English speaker, university student or graduate applicants who have previous experience with children and camp activities. Our mentors accompany the participants while on campus all through the day and help them reach new horizons.

Our participants follow a different Schedule everyday with their groups determined by their age. The differences between the English levels within the groups help participants to support one another’s and create a valuable experience for both parties. Our mentors accompany the participants through all of the activities and encourage them to practice their English.

We offer a shuttle service option which picks up and drops off our participants from and to their residences. To ensure a safe and comfortable ride, each shuttle has a hostess whom we train beforehand. Each bus is also equipped with GPS system from which you can track the whereabouts of your child. Three point seatbelts and insurance are also standard in each shuttle.

Our participants eat their breakfasts at home before coming to camp. Our first snack is served at 09:45 after out first activity, lunch is at 12:00 and the second snack is served before our participants leave the campus at 14:55. We do our best to create a healty and balanced menu and Divan Restaurant prepareds and serves the meals.
