For children aged 3 to 15
Summer is the best time of the year to have fun! That’s why at the BCA Summer Camp we make sure that, in addition to being fully immersed in the English language, students have a blast. A weekly excursion to 360 Extreme or Pal Mountain Park, as well as daily workshops, outdoor games, sports and English classes, are only some of the activities on the agenda.
The BCA Summer Camp is a day camp co-run by the British College of Andorra and Singular Acadèmia d’Anglès. Each week is a new experience with a different theme, so students may enroll for as many weeks as they like.
Who is the programme open to?
The BCA Summer Camp is open to students born between 2007 and 2019 who are currently enrolled at BCA, as well as students from other schools.
Groups are formed keeping in mind students’ levels of English and age.
What activities are included in the program?
360 Extreme & Pal Mountain Park
The weekly excursion to either 360 Extreme or Pal Mountain Park is, without a doubt, one of the highlights of the week.
360 Extreme is the leading freestyle center in Andorra where students can practice flips on trampolines, take skateboarding lessons and work on their gross motor skills. We’ve also organized gymkhanas, gymnastics, yoga and stretching.
Pal Mountain Park, on the other hand, is an outdoor theme park with adventure activities such as archery, acro jumping, zip lines, pedal car circuits and tubbing.
The day trip to 360 Extreme will take place the 1st and 3rd week of July and to Pal Mountain Park the 2nd and 4th week of July.
Planning for students aged 3-5
The following changes will be applied to the planning of groups of children aged 3 to 6:
- This age group will work with a weekly book-based theme (e.g. Jack and the Beanstalk and The Little Red Riding Hood) and the first two daily sessions in the planning will revolve around this theme. Some activities will include preparing a play, working on the vocabulary found in the book (through games, such as Bingo and Memory), creating and presenting storyboards and making crafts.
- Lunch time will start earlier, at 12:30.
- Nap time will be optional (depending on parent requests). Those who don’t nap anymore will have some down-time after lunch.
- Children up to the age of 6 will form part of the same group. There will, however, be sessions during which the students will be separated and will work in subgroups, according to their age-related abilities.
Planning for students aged 6-15

Although the BCA uniform is not necessary for BCA SC, all those enrolled in the program will receive 2 summer T-shirts (included in the fee). T-shirts will need to be worn during BCA SC hours.
BCA SC lunch will be freshly cooked on site every day by the school’s 'K L'Irina' Catering Service. We commit to offering students a varied, balanced and healthy diet. A morning snack will also be provided. Most food intolerances and allergies shall be respected.
The teacher/monitor vs student ratio will be 1:10 and there will be a maximum of 20 students per group. Group sizes will be reduced during the academic sessions (Class Time, Public Speaking and Math Brain Cruncher sessions).
The program will be run by qualified native English teachers, both from the BCA and Singular Acadèmia d’Anglès staff.
Experienced monitors with a high level of English fluency will work together with the native teachers during the afternoon activities, as well as during the morning workshops, putting their creative skills to good use.
