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.
360Extrem & Caldea
The weekly Wednesday excursions are, without a doubt, one of the highlights of the week.
During weeks 1 and 3, students will go to Caldea, Andorra’s thermal spa, where the younger students will enjoy a stay at Likids and the older ones will go to the general Thermoludic area, accompanied by Summer Camp staff.
During week 2, students will go to 360 Extrem, Andorra’s leading freestyle center. There, students can learn how to do jumps and flips on trampolines, take skateboarding lessons and work on their gross motor skills. We’ve also organized gymkhanas, gymnastics and stretching.
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 born as of 2017
The daily planning has 3 different segments; a more academic one (where we work on improving students' fluency), a more creative one (via our workshops) and an outdoor one, where we carry out sport competitions or water sports on our trampolines or bouncy water castles. Students are separated into subgroups, factoring in their age and level of English.

The weekly price of BCA SC is 225€ per student for the full-time option (9:00-17:00) and 155€ for the part-time schedule (9:00-13:30, without lunch).

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 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.
