Summary: Oak Grove 2011 English as a Second Language (ESL) Summer Camp
This camp is a 2 -week Homestay ESL & Surf Camp with an optional 3rd week camping and exploring the California Central Coast. The camp is suitable for ages 12 to 15 years.
Why is our camp so special? International students board with an American host family so they have a true cultural experience. For the afternoon surfing and 3rd week camping option, international students are mixed with American campers so they make friends and have lots of opportunities to speak English!
