Our values and standards

We have been organizing English-language vacations for campers for 9 years. Our team maintains the highest safety standards and follows practices from British language colleges.

An individual approach

For each session, we assemble teams of campers consisting of 12 participants. Each group has a tutor and a native speaker that motivate the participants to communicate in English and take care of each camper 24/7.

Safety

At the beginning of every camp session, each participant undergoes a medical examination. Tutors, coordinators, security guards, and a medical worker are with campers day and night.

Studying and activities

During the camp, campers will benefit from 35 academic hours of English (2 weeks) with certified English teachers – native speakers. Project work, creative activities, and training sessions from tutors will improve each camper’s teamwork skills and creativity.

Digital detox

Gadgets are stored in special boxes, and according to rules on their use time, campers can use them for 1.5 hours a day. Instead of smartphones, we use live communication. In case of emergencies, camp coordinators stay in touch with parents.

English-speaking environment

All language classes, sports and entertainment activities, and art masterclasses are held in English: this format helps campers master the language as they play.

On the first day after arrival, our native speakers assess the campers’ level of English so that everyone can practice it in a group that suits their needs.

We choose interactive lesson formats taught by teachers with international CELTA, TEFL, and TKT certifications:

  • speaking clubs and debates
  • projects selected by campers
  • mafia games, online quizzes, and battles

We hold English classes, sports and entertainment activities, master classes in English.
This learning format helps campers improve their language while having fun.

After-session care

  • A report from a native speaker tutor on the camper’s progress with English
  • A report from the tutor on the overall experience at camp

Vitalii Bresler

Director of British Camp

Almost 9 years ago, I decided to create a project with the goal of developing the tourism industry in Ukraine that would follow international standards. I completed two internships in the USA and participated in study trips to language colleges in Canada. It was there that I learned about modern standards of education and leisure for children, which are now practiced at British Camp! My specialty is teaching English, but at the camp, I enjoy playing soccer the most 🙂 Of course, we also have soccer matches in English!

Daria Bondar

Creative director

I have 6 years of experience in developing edutainment programs. I participated in a cultural exchange program in the US and completed the Disney Institute’s training on international standards in entertainment services.

As a trained medical doctor, I always put the safety of campers and crew first when I create any creative, training, or fan experience. I often find interesting partners for collaboration on camp experiences, such as the Museum of Happiness in London. I regularly attend tea ceremonies to pass on the latest English trends to campers 😉

Ryan Womersley

Native Speaker from the UK

Poland is the seventh country where I teach. Previously, I also taught English in Thailand, Spain, Poland, and, of course, America. I have visited 48 of America’s 50 states with my family! Besides teaching, I am also a sports referee in the US – I referee 6 sports, so coordinating sports games at camp is a pure pleasure!

Anna Anikina

Camp coordinator

I have been in charge of organizing summer vacations for children for the past 7 years, and for 4 years in a row, I have created the best English-speaking vacations at British Camp. My main task is to ensure that the work on site is well coordinated and efficient. At the camp, I take care of the organizational aspects, such as working with contractors, recruiting and training the team, and of course communicating with parents.

The most exciting thing for me is watching everything we have planned for the campers become reality.

Polina Zadorozhna

Program Coordinator

I am a philologist and English translator, and campers know me as the organizer of the best tea ceremonies. My job is to prepare the recreation for each session, including the most interesting training sessions, sports activities, and parties. I also monitor the daily schedule of camp activities: campers’ time for rest, study, and entertainment is under my supervision!

Amy Boliter

Native Speaker from the UK

I studied and obtained my CELTA certification in the UK, and I’m currently living in Spain. I love doing sports, especially dance, and yoga. I have previously worked at sports camps in the UK, Guatemala, Colombia, and Spain. I play the cello and piano, so I will share with campers not only my English skills but also my musical knowledge!

Elizaveta Grekh

Author of thematic programs

Camp is like ‘a small life’, and the program completes it. I do it all for the pleasant reactions of campers because there is nothing better than their sincere smiles and satisfaction during an activity. Getting to know the campers’ desires during live interactions, their hobbies, and their thoughts – all these things not only help me create the program but also inspire me. British Camp is a family – everyone feels like an important part of its universe!

Anna Burlatska

Author of thematic programs

They say there is no such thing as love at first sight, but I know for sure that there is love at first shift! And each season, British Camp only amplifies this feeling for me. My job, on the other hand, is to amplify this feeling in the campers. This is the exchange of energy. At camp, I write, create and implement thematic programs for campers. The best measure of my work is the sparkle in the campers’ eyes after a workout, art masterclass, or theme night!

Adam Davies

Native Speaker from the USA

I was born in Gorseinon, UK, and then moved to the US, so kids often notice my American-British accent. I have a CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) and don’t use social media at all, so I’m happy to help campers enjoy their time at camp without gadgets!

Irina Shlepova

Author of thematic programs

My job is to share inspiration. It involves doing everything that is possible and impossible to make sure that campers bring home unforgettable memories, new knowledge, and cool experiences from camp. In return, I get smiles, hugs, and eyes full of happiness and love. I come up with ideas for camp themes and directly implement my ideas at UK camp locations – my role is to be part of our friendly Camp Heroes team.

Maria Kobylinska

Art tutor

At the camp, I am responsible for art workshops that help express and develop creativity. The campers and I have a lot in common: we are very energetic and active, and love workshops! It is very important for me that every activity for children is of the highest quality. I make sure that the atmosphere is truly British, as I also take care of the camp’s decor.

Robert Smith

Native Speaker from the USA

I have been working in Ukraine for the past 3 years, and I am returning to British Camp to teach English and play sports with campers!

Liza Pleskachova

Senior tutor

If I could remain a tutor for a lifetime, I would definitely choose this path! Learning about children’s interests, creating an atmosphere in which they enjoy learning and playing, helping other tutors get along with campers, and creating a team… These are not just my favorite tasks, but my dream job! I have 6 years of experience working at children’s camps, but British Camp has become family to me since I first arrived.

Rachel Campbell

Native Speaker from Canada

I was born in Canada, but I also studied in Sweden and Egypt. I love camps for children. I have worked as a teacher and developed camp programs in Canada, Korea, and Malaysia for students from 20 different countries. I also love playing rugby: I used to play on a university team, and now I play with campers at camp!

Maksym Mokhun

Senior tutor

I have been an integral part of British Camp for 3 years. During this time, I have worked as a tutor. Currently, I continue my work as a senior tutor. I am responsible for ensuring that the work of the on-site tutors is of high quality, and I share the best life hacks on how to make campers interested in sports and educational activities. I am happy to share my good humor with others and to prove on my own example that sports are really cool. You can most often find me at the site, playing soccer, dodgeball, tennis, or beach volleyball with campers.

Andrew Amegbey

I have been teaching English in Ukraine for 5 years, and I have been familiar with children’s camps ever since I lived in America.

I love soccer and parkour and look forward to participating in these activities with campers!
