Expert lecturers and instructors conduct interesting and engaging classes, workshops and walking tours of Rome’s impressive landmarks, UNESCO sites and museums. Students befriend fellow teens from all over the world and enjoy an exciting social program which includes cooking classes, and evening events.
Sea Quest (12 – 17 years old) introduces students to the magic of sailing and core nautical skills while voyaging and visiting some of the Mediterranean’s most idyllic and famous islands. Students live aboard 50-foot yachts working as a close-knit crew to develop communication and leadership capabilities under the careful guidance of RYA certified instructors.

My daughter came back very enthusiastic. This experience has allowed her to grow in independence, self-confidence and English. She also had a lot of fun. See you next year!
Giulia went to camp for the first time this summer. She came back enriched by her wonderful experience: she cried with nostalgia because she missed her friends and camp counselors so much. She studied English with constancy, had fun, was able to understand what it means to be part of a team, and develop new friendships. All in a spectacular environment, at a beautiful structure, surrounded by untouched nature. Lots of English, great food, lots of sports, nature and fun. Thanks Philip, thanks guys, see you next year!
My son is a veteran…this is his fourth year… minimum two weeks and he is never tired of it!!! Thanks summer camp! And thanks to the whole staff… a special thanks to Sean and Stiles!!!
I wanted to let you know that the week at camp for Silvia and Ettore was a highly formative experience. In their own ways, both have come back with great memories. A thank you to the Fun Leaders that were pleasant and engaging. Silvia said that she wants to live in America because “everything is nicer there” and Ettore said that “next year it’s obvious I’m going back to camp”.
Thanks for everything! Thanks again to the counselors and the whole staff. Giulio said that he had so much fun, ate wonderfully and learned so many new things. The teachers were super nice and always ready to help and the location was fantastic! Thanks!
