AYC’s Winter Camp Program, lasts about 12 days. During the camp, students actually attend an American school for a full week and take a cultural tour of the north-eastern US during the second week.
Week 1: The American School Experience!
During the first week of our Winter Camp, you will be partnered with an American student. For five days you will attend classes with your host student. You will also have opportunities to visit classes of special interest that are unique to American schools. In addition, you can participate in after school activities and go on school field trips to local cultural and historical sites. For five days you will be an American student! On the weekend, campers engage in a variety of local events and do some shopping.
Week 2: Life in America!
During the second week of the Winter Camp, students tour historical and culturally significant areas in the US. Cities that AYC campers visit may include Boston, New York City, (and occasionally depends on venue) Philadelphia, Washington DC, Savannah and Charleston. The tour gives students a real idea of what life is like in America. They experience the culture, sample American food, interact with local citizens, see the countryside, use their English and get a true sense of life in America. For 7 days, you will live the life of an American!
