Overview

  • English Classes: 15 lessons / week
  • Accommodation Type: Clayesmore Residence

One of the main aims of this camp is for participants to develop their team spirit, acquire a sense of discipline and improve their self-confidence.

Exsportise receives students from all around the world and this mix of nationalities is key to the success of the camp. The number of students from the same nationality is limited, thus ensuring that English is the principal language spoken. Last year Exsportise hosted students from 65 different countries.

Training

  • Groups: Small groups
  • Training: Physical and technical skills

At the beginning of the summer camp the participants are evaluated and grouped according to their ability. Groups are small, with an average of 10 participants for each trainer.

During coaching, as well as working on physical and technical skills, there is a focus on the psychological aspects - decision making, leadership and mental strength. The physical techniques covered include attack, defence, speed, general fitness etc.

In terms of technique, participants work on the areas of strategy, team working and communication.

Language Classes

  • Available language: English
  • Classes per week: 15 hours / week

The camp includes 15 hours per week of English classes. On arrival students take a test to assess their level and this determines which group they are placed in. Classes are small, with around ten students to a group.

As well as participating in sport every day of the week, they will also be practising their English in the context of their training sessions.

Camp Schedule

After a full day of sport and lessons at the Exsportise Rugby Camp, the activities continue in the evenings, with a varied social programme.

Activities

To complete a full day of activities, a varied and fun social programme is provided. The Exsportise entertainment team plans a range of activities, such as talent shows, movies, team games, treasure hunts, dodgeball, discos and competitions. This gives participants a fantastic opportunity to get to know their camp mates outside the sport coaching and English classes. Students are supervised by staff at the camp at all times.

Each weekend the camp organises a full day excursion to major British cities like Bath, Brighton, Oxford or Cambridge. The students will have the chance to experience the historic culture of Britain as well as its attractive nature and important landmarks. Students can relax, enjoy themselves and buy souvenirs.

There are also excursions to theme parks such as Thorpe Park or Chessington World of Adventures. A fantastic way for the young people to relax and enjoy their new friendships.
