Summer Experience – Summer Day Camp and Overnight Camp in English

No matter their level of English – from beginner to mothertongue – your children will have a blast at our summer camps which are organized completely in English, with native speaking counselors.

Day camp is held at the Casa del Popolo in Osteria Nuova (the comune of Bagno a Ripoli) in Via Roma, 448. The site is immersed in the Florentine hills and offers access to fantastic indoor and outdoor facilities, including nature walks and a soccer field (which we use for much more than soccer).

Our overnight camp is at the Antico Spedale del Bigallo in Via Bigallo e Apparita, again in the comune of Bagno a Ripoli. Bigallo overs a breathtaking view onto the city and the perfect setting for our fun camp.

Day camp is from 8.30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday starting June 11 and finishing July 6 (four weeks). Kids may attend one, two, three or four weeks. (Extended hours are available at an additional cost if a minimum number of requests are made).

Overnight camp is from late afternoon on July 1 til lunchtime on July 7.

Who is welcome:
All kids from ages 6 through 14 are welcome at our day camp. Overnight camp is open to older kids from aged 11 and up.

Summer School or Daycare

I am currently a law student in San Diego. I am interested in attending a summer law program through my school but would need to bring my 7yr old daughter in order to attend. Do you know of any summer programs in Florence from May 23 through June 24? or of a daycare for that age? I could also do an in-home daycare or swap the morning shift with an evening shift if anybody would be interested in that. She only speaks English.   Thanks! Deva devafish@hotmail.com
