This past summer school holiday, GEMS World Academy Switzerland (GWAS) offered a wide range of fun and educational summer activities in the form of day camps. The camps ran over several weeks during July and August with a choice of half or full day participation and more than 100 children from 4 to 16 years old enjoyed language learning activities as well as sports activities. It proved to be an interesting way to occupy children while promoting their development and learning and it offered working parents a flexible and perfect solution.
The “Language in Action” programmes use an approach based on theatre and acting skills. This originality is intended to make language learning more dynamic and friendly for the children whilst helping them develop their self-confidence. If English and French were the official languages taught in the summer camps, no fewer than 11 other languages are offered all year round in the World Language Learning Centre (WLLC), open to children and adults.
Alongside the language programmes, the school offered several sports camps. From basketball to football, swimming and gymnastics, GWAS offered its beautiful facilities to participants.
Football, basketball and entrepreneurship camps will be proposed during this autumn school holiday from Monday to Friday, 17-21 October so please visit our website for details: http://www.gemsworldacademy-switzerland.com/ and check under Learning/Holiday Camps or contact the school directly via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 021-964.18.18.
