Avalon School Summer Camps

Avalon Sustainability School is run with the highest safety and risk management standards using only professionally-trained outdoor guides and facilitators and certified language coaches. We strive for students to have a great time alongside adults with a passion for life and a better future. Our educational programme is inspired by the internationally recognised Gaia Education Design for Sustainability program, delivered in 27 countries around the world, and RCE Barcelona, the Regional Centre for Expertise in Education for Sustainable Development recognised by the United Nations University. We combine an understanding of the interconnectedness of personal, environmental, social and economic challenges with a practical hands on approach to creating more resilient communities. Head home with a new sense of responsibility and ideas to put into action. Learn to express yourself through English in a fun and non-intimidating environment with the help and encouragement of our wonderful team of educators and language coaches. We will encourage you to speak out, make mistakes and learn from them. At the end of an Avalon Camp students will be able to: - Explore a connection with nature, experience a healthy lifestyle, express dreams and insights and contemplate their place in the world. (world vision) - Work in a team, improve communication and language skills in a compassionate way and be able to deal with conflict and diversity. (social dimension) - Apply green building, whole water and local food principles to a practical project and calculate the carbon footprint of an activity. (ecological dimension) - Be able to make more informed, ethical choices about how to use money in a socially and environmentally responsible way.
