At our LEOlingo overnight camps everything is included: the language, accommodation, food… and of course lots of fun! The kids and counsellors spend the whole week at youth hostels, cabins, guesthouses or even in castles!
Just like at our day camps, our native speakers provide a varied programme throughout the day consisting of language games, songs, funny sketches, short dramas, creative activities and popular sports from each English or French-speaking country (Baseball, Rugby, Cricket, American Football, etc.).
In the evenings, the night counsellors take over the whole camp to run all kinds of exciting whole-camp activities, such as campfires, scavenger hunts, discos, night hikes and much more!
At some of our overnight camps, we also offer the kids the chance to take part in a special adventure activity in addition to the LEOlingo “classic” programme. Special activities include horse-riding, climbing, canoeing and waterskiing. At these special camps, we work together with experienced professionals who teach the kids everything they need to know about their chosen activity.
Below is an example programme for a LEOlingo overnight camp (“classic”):
07.30 – 08.00 Wash/shower
08.00 – 08.30 Breakfast
09.00 – 09.15 Morning circle
09.15 – 10.15 Warm-up games
10.15 – 10.30 Short break

11.55 – 12.00 Language rally
12.00 – 13.00 Lunch break
13.00 – 15.30 Sports, arts and crafts
15.30 – 15.45 Short break
15.45 – 16.30 Drama

17.00 – 18.00 Free time
18.00 – 18.30 Dinner

The schedule at an overnight “special” camp is almost identical to that at a classic camp as, in most cases, the special activity is just once per week (usually towards the middle of the week). At some special camps, for example the horse-riding camp, the kids have about 2 hours for their chosen activity each day.
