What they say about You Can Camp

“I recently participated in this program as a volunteer in Eastern Italy. I had an amazing experience that changed my life! Working with the children was challenging at times, but so rewarding. The parents were very appreciative and thrilled their children were learning English from native speakers. All the camp directors were very organized and attentive to details and the curriculum was well planned. I am a junior high teacher in the US and took away some great ideas I will use in my own classroom.

Outside of teaching, the boarding and meal accommodations were wonderful. I had more than enough time to explore the city and travel out of town on the weekends. I truly felt I was submerged in the Italian culture. I would definitely participate in this program again.”

Jennica Paterniti, USA

“My experience teaching English at a summer camp was aaawesome!!!

First of all, the association was tremendously helpful all the time and they answered all my questions by email right away.

Teaching English at the camp was quite an easy and enjoyable task. Both teachers and kids enjoyed the activities and there was a very relaxed atmosphere. Kids do really make an effort to learn and practice the language.

I got to stay with two host families in different towns and they were both really nice and welcoming. They were all very interested in my life abroad and we had really interesting conversations until late at night. They improved their English a lot and I even felt like I learned some Italian! They would give me a ride to the beach, to meet my friends, we had family dinners and meals with locals……….. We bonded so much that we still keep in contact. Everything was just perfect. Although staying with a host family was great and totally recommendable, my friends who didn’t stay with a family had an amazing experience too.

If you are looking for a place in Italy to teach English, look no more, this is the place to go! Thank you guys for making this stay in Marche unforgettable, I’ll be back for sure! ”

Elender S., Spain

“International Experience is the best way to travel abroad in Italy.

The coordinators are very helpful in ensuring that their volunteers are treated well. I joined the program 5 years ago for the first time and easily fell in love with the Marche area, the summer camp, and the program coordinators so since then I have returned almost every year to participate in the summer camp. It is great way to share the English language, enjoy the Italian culture / family life / food, travel through the magical Italy, make long lasting friendships, and really see life in a whole new light.
