Located in a wonderful area not far from Brasov City, Sambata de Sus is an oasis of peace, harmony and fresh air with springs from Fagaras Mountains. Surrounded by hills, mountains and forests, “Miruna” Complex provides the ideal conditions for an unforgettable stay.
This English summer camp has been organized for 18 years in different locations and it is very popular among Romanian pupils.
The British trainers/volunteers are expected to teach English through games, drama and other fun activities to the pupils (aged between 7 and 16). However, it is not the trainer’ responsibility to look after the children. There will be teachers to do that. There will be around 170 children in the camp and 12 trainers working with them, with a ratio of one trainer to about 15-20 children.
The timetable is very flexible and it is always planned and discussed with the trainers in advance. We are dedicated to making the trainers’ stay in Romania a memorable one. Our pupils speak very good English so communication with them will not be a problem. However, the younger ones may need support and guidance sometimes but organizers and other teachers are there to help all the time. We think that there is no right or wrong way to teach and we believe that each British trainer brings his or her own style and ideas. If a trainer ever becomes stuck for ideas or just needs a little support, the camp organizers are always there to help.
