about the camp

Beijing Schedule


Teach English as a Foreign Language, generally for two-three classes per day. At the Beijing camp, each class has around 20 students and you’ll typically stay with the same group for the duration of each camp.

You will usually have the assistance of a bilingual teaching assistant or co-teacher, but are required to develop lesson plans and materials yourself.

afternoon activities

Each afternoon, the school runs fun activities for the students, which interns are highly encouraged to join in. These are always hugely popular, providing an opportunity to relax and get to know your students in a more relaxed environment.

In the past, this has included a water fight, football, tug of war, and art classes. 


evening competitions

While interns will have some evenings free, most will be dedicated to camp activities such as competitions and games.

Previously this has included a talent show, speaking competition and bonfire party.
