We take a lot of precautions to make sure our camps are super safe and secure and our safety record reflects this. Our directors and instructors are CPR trained, first aid facilities are present at all times, and emergency transportation is always available. While we do our utmost to guarantee a safe environment, we also try to instill in our students the necessary tools they need to manage the risks they encounter at camp and in life.
We are proud members of the American Camp Association, whose best practices and vision of enriching the lives of youth through the camp experience are embodied in our programs. The Alphabet Go Green initiative helps campers better understand their relationship with nature through environmental education and by engaging in ecological principles and practices at camp. Alphabet School, the branch which specializes in teaching English, is also a recognized Cambridge ESOL exam preparation center which runs English language courses throughout the scholastic year for hundreds of students. So when it comes to summer camp programs we know what it takes to learn English and we do our best to prepare students before, during and after camp with the necessary tools to interact in English.
We believe that students need to feel truly at home with us in order to let go and really push themselves to draw the maximum benefit from their camp experience. We strive to create a warm, caring environment around them and for this we have got some of the best directors and instructors in the business. Most work with us year-round as English language teachers and many have been working at our camps for years. Our instructors hail from the US, the UK, Australia, Ireland and, well, anywhere English is spoken. They come with diverse and specialized educational backgrounds and are outstanding role models, always ready to create developmentally appropriate activities and rewarding cultural experiences for our students.
