Alphabet International Camps, NORTHERN AND CENTRAL ITALY
INTERNATIONAL CAMPS in Piedmont, Umbria and LazioInternational summer programs in the heart of Italy In the summer of 2009 Alphabet launched its first summer camp for juniors, combining the beauty of the Italian countryside with the adventures of an American camp. The aim was to give campers an exciting and educational experience while discovering sports, activities, and food from the Anglo-American world in a safe and caring environment. Since then, new locations and programs have been added, catering to diverse interests and ages, yet all inspired by the same goal of opening campers’ minds to a more international view. While always privileging the FUN factor, Alphabet Camps offer a 360-degree learning experience, enabling students to explore their potential, develop independence, create new friendships, strengthen their communication skills, learn about teamwork and become more open-minded. Why choosing our camp? Run entirely in English by qualified mother-tongue counselors, all camps guarantee exceptional safety and 100% involvement thanks to a 5:1 student to staff ratio.

Sancelso International Camp - near Milano, NORTHERN ITALY
INTERNATIONAL ENGLISH SUMMER CAMP in LombardiaInternational summer camp in English in Lombardia. A holiday that gives you a result. Mountain excursions, sports and workshops all in English: how to learn with joy in an authentic full immersion with a real International Summer Camp! Why choosing our camp? For Tradition, Experience and Goals. The Sancelso International Camp offers a summer camp in English for children aged 6 to 17 in a relaxed and comfortable international environment with teachers and friends of different nationalities. Our holidays for children have the objective of learning the English language, cultural integration and building up new friendships between children from different countries. Our program Decades of experience led us to select this type of method: living everyday life is what allows a complete and successful learning of the language. For this reason in our camp we choose not to offer classroom lessons but sports, role-playing games, art, crafts, science and cooking workshops all in English lead by mother tongue teachers and expert and aware Italian counselors. Thanks to this offer, our camps also turn out to be a moment of authentic growth in close contact with the nature. We are convinced that living in the mountains can be a fundamental experience: for this reason we offer excursions, cooking out experiences and the possibility of living the experience of sleeping in a tent or in a cabin. A typical day at the camp takes place mainly outdoors: group sports and activities such as rafting, horse riding, ice skating, archery and visits to the adventure park complete our offer. Why we do not offer a day camp? At Sancelso International Camp we choose to offer a real full immersion, taking advantage of all the possible moments for learning: indeed, it is in moments of true sociality that children and teenagers assimilate the language and learn it with awareness and as an everyday routine.
