As a Nord Anglia school, we are delighted to be able to share details of the forthcoming summer camps for Summer 2024!

Opportunities exist to explore the natural beauty of Switzerland – hike in the alps, swim in the lakes and soak up the clean, fresh air.

Alternatively, dive into the culture of the UK – visit its cities and cultural highlights and soak up the atmosphere in the university city of Oxford.

Or, experience some of the best of the USA – the Florida sun, the outdoors lifestyle and access to internationally renowned theme parks and experiences.

More details of the Nord Anglia range of summer camps are in the link in our bio.
