Discovery Summer – what’s that? 

Well, Discovery Summer is 2 in 1: for the kids it’s their perfect holiday dreams come true, and for the parents, too: at last their children start speaking fluent English! 

Discovery Summer is 6 excellent language summer camps for kids and teens, invented and created 20 years ago by Jane Merrick ( who wanted to find international friends for her two teenage sons. Right now they help their mum to run the Discovery Summer family business, and so every July 6 fantastic traditional English boarding schools welcome kids and teens from more than 40 countries. What’s particularly interesting, English teenagers also take part in the camps. 

All of the schools have fantastic grounds and facilities, where you can play all kinds of sports (golf, tennis, swimming, football, horse riding etc). do all forms of art (theatre, dance, film), or even learn how to write code! Of course – you do all that in English. On top of things, kids take two half-day trips weekly to visit Windsor, Oxford and other exciting places in the area.
