The CES English Centre is organising a camp for young students in Wimbledon. You may be familiar with the suburb from the World Tennis Championships. As well as its sporting reputation it's also a very fashionable and peaceful place. London is twenty minutes by train, while the centre is a ten minute walk from the school. 

The centre has good academic facilities: classrooms, computer rooms, a lounge with snack machines and a terrace. English and sports are a big part of the curriculum. Children play tennis, football, badminton and squash. They will be taken on a guided tour of the British Museum, the National Gallery and just for a walk in London. At weekends guys will go to Oxford, Brighton or Cambridge. They spend the evenings with their host families - experiencing British life first-hand. On the day before the departure kids enjoy a barbecue party.

Children stay in single rooms with host families for the duration of their course. It's comfortable, relaxing and useful - a good opportunity to get some extra language practice in. Families are within walking distance of the school or a 30-45 minute bus ride away. All are carefully selected by CES in several stages. Meals are provided twice a day.
