ICF Academy S4 E5: ICF Camp Study Tours – English Summer S.A. in Spain

May 21, 2024

Session description

Join us to meet Carolina Fleix-Wright, the co-owner and director of English Summer S.A. camp in Spain and to take a tour of camp. We will look behind the program successes and learn about all aspects of the English Summer S.A. camp operation – from history to administration, services to operations, camp operations in Spain and more. Learn how your camp can join the ICF Camp Study Tour Program and be featured in future episodes.

In the ongoing effort to build a catalog of video tours of ICF camps around the world, we visit some of the host camp(s) of ICC 2023 under the guidance of the directors and ICF Board member Carolina Fleix-Wright. English Summer operates on five sites in the region of Catalonia in Spain and uses a traditional summer camp model to enrich English teaching alongside cultural and character development.

Spotlight:  Harness Technology to Be a More Human Camp Director – with Travis Allison

As a camp director, your personal touch keeps families returning year after year. But manual marketing and administrative tasks can pull you away from meaningful interactions with parents and campers. Learn how AI and automation tools can handle the repetitive work, giving you more time to build real relationships. Discover easy-to-implement strategies, from personalized video messages to streamlined registration, showing your camp families how much, you care.
