Honorary patronages of English Summer Camp 2018

Have you ever wondered who the honorary patrons of ESC 2018 are?

Well, English Summer Camp 2018 is proud to be covered by many patrons of the local authorities. We are grateful that so many great people are kind to us!

The honorary patron of the current edition of the Camp is Mr. Grzegorz Piechowski, the Mayor of the Kościerzyna community. It is in Szarlota near Kościerzyna that our pupils will spend the next two weeks. Once again, thank you for letting our children stay in an ideal holiday home near Lake Osuszyno. Undoubtedly, a volleyball court, basket for playing basketball or a designated square for bonfire will make time even to the biggest troublemakers! 🙂

What’s more – we are pleased to inform you that honorary patrons are also Presidents of the City of Gdańsk and City of SopotMr. Paweł Adamowicz and Mr. Jacek Karnowski! It is here, in the Tri-City, that the idea of ​​organizing a colony for children was born. We combine play with science. Support for our activities means a lot to us and adds a lot of energy to action!

Also, the Marshal of the Pomorskie Voivodeship, Mr. Mieczysław Struk and the Governor of Pomerania, Mr. Dariusz Drelich, support our camp! Thank you for supporting the initiative by the highest authorities of our beautiful province!

Honorary patrons – Thank you!

All of the above and each one separately. On our part, we will do our best to make our language camp better and better from year to year. We hope for fruitful cooperation also in next editions! Who knows, maybe thanks to you, we will be able to encourage more cities to become the patron of both English Summer Camp and English Winter Camp! During the course of 14 years of uninterrupted activity, over 2,000 children from Pomeranian Foster Families and Children’s Homes used the English Camp camps. We are glad that we have found patrons, and thus we can confidently say – partners who like us like to help.

Over the next days, we will reveal the other patrons and sponsors of the camp. If, however, you are already interested – we invite you to the Facebook profile! It’s a great way to keep track of camp life! Helping is cool! 🙂

 

English Summer Camp 2018 – let’s start!

First day of English Summer Camp 2018

It happened! We are after the first day of camp attractions, and there were plenty of them! 23.07.18 at 12:00, the kids along with the counsellors arrived at the campsite. As last year, children will spend English Summer Camp in Zielona Szarlota. This pension, located in the neighbourhood of the lake Osuszyno, will be an ideal place for the a two-week adventure, which we are ahead. Apart from outstanding language instructors and camp tutors, also PMI representatives visited the camp in the squad: Kasia Sempołowicz-Lipska, Ewa Orłowska and Damian Szczesny. Obviously, we could not forget about the most important personalities taking part in the camp- children, which in numerous, thirty-person group will spend this wonderful time with us 🙂
After the arrival and the initial organization, the time for one of the favourite activities of every human came, because whole camp went to the dinner 🙂 Then, with full stomachs and widesmiles we started getting know each other. It is truly amazing, how many interesting information you can get from other people in about a dozen minutes!

In a healthy body, healthy mind

When participants got to know each other better, a time for the team games came, after all, sport is the main theme of the camp 🙂 The range of the possibilities was huge, children played football, basketball, volleyball and many more. The attraction of the day – to the great enthusiasm of kids – was still before us!
Around 19:00 the whole camp set off on the hare and hounds organised for us by the Survival Adventure Squad. Children had to struggle with many riddles and challenges, and had to find the destination following instuctions hidden in forest. I think that moods accompanying the journey are perfectly depicted in the photo gallery showed below. We have enjoyed it a lot!
Admittedly this day passed very quickly and before we realized, the sun came over the horizon. This day was certainly unique not only by children, also counsellors had great fun and integrated with young pupils . In the mood of the well spent day, we went for the truly deserved rest, full of enthusiasm and with hope, that remaining days will be equally fruitful.

Representatives of companies stood opposite each other: Ensono, Lufthansa, Staples, State Street and thyssenkrupp. After a fierce competition, players from Staples won!

A lottery, a barbecue, artistic performances – all this took place on the pitch right next to the football struggles. The weather was favorable for us, so everyone left the pitch with a smile.
