Wonderful camp in a wonderful location, the staff are excellent at what they do and create a perfect atmosphere for learning and gaining new experiences.
It was so nice to have the opportunity to bring our two daughters, (11years old twins), back to you this summer! Not as summer campers such as in 2019, (when the girls had their 1st– 3 weeks away from home– experience), but, as future English language students. As we really needed some preparation to attend this all English-speaking school, we choose Victoria Lovell and her team to teach both English and maths to our daughters. Who would be a better option? The two of them had lots of fun learning, and commented their experience with sentences like: “Ms Victoria is the best maths teacher ever!:))” We were entirely satisfied by those intensive mornings, and can highly recommend Lovell Academy and Camps. GREAT CAMP, GREAT PROFESSIONAL TEACHERS, GREAT SPORTS TEACHERS! An overall super experience! Please carry-on with this wonderful kids paradise.
The camp achieves the balance that all schools should aspire to create: the healthy combination of academic study, sports and creative freedom. The facilities speak for themselves: Amelia became a confident and competitive ski racer, experimented with cross country skiing, had the chance to ice skate regularly and became a strong and enthusiastic swimmer. It is clear that every counsellor/ teacher is chosen with utmost care: they all operate with a clear focus on creating a polite, kind and enthusiastic learning environment with the right balance of structure, fun and freedom.
