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.
