Monday, July 1, Z CAMP 2019
Welcome to the Z Camp blog 2019
You can follow the goings on of our great summer camp every day. We will show you some great pictures of our Z campers on the beach, doing sports, arts & crafts, playing instruments, and generally having a wonderful time – all while learning and practicing our English. Maybe you’ll see someone you know.
Today, we started the month, the week and the camp with a bang!
After an early breakfast we set off for the beach. Our new location is in Kiten, just along the coast from last year’s camp, and just 5 minutes from the sea. The water was clear and warm and everyone enjoyed a refreshing dip. Some played games and others just chilled out, but an enjoyable time was had by all.
Straight into the first English class
We arrived back at camp and launched straight into the first English class. First day is level testing and getting acclimatized to the camp. We did activities all day which assessed the level of English accomplishment already achieved by our new students, allowing us to best assess plan the content of the classes for the coming camp. This took the form of a short grammar test, a writing assignment and a speaking interview by one of our experienced teachers.
After a delicious lunch it was back for another fun English session. Walking round our teaching spaces this afternoon was really exciting. So many interesting activities were taking place everywhere you looked.
Then it was on to sports in the afternoon.
We had a mixture of activites: baseball, volleyball and Ultimate Frizby. Some pupils even had a chance for a dip in the pool at our lovely new accommodation at the Hotel Green Park.
Evening activities were such a laugh!
We played Getting-to-know-you Bingo, as well as lots of other team-building games – all led by our enthusiastic team of teachers, activity leaders and mentors.
Time flies when you’re having fun, but writing this I can’t believe how much we have actually managed to fit in. One of the team will write here every day, so be sure to check out our blog for info and photos tomorrow, and for the rest of the summer.
All the best,Mike Macdonald and all at Z Camp 2019.
