Training is undertaken in small groups with professional coaches to allow campers to benefit the most from their training sessions.
The camp provides 9 days of training with 4 hours per day, in addition to a tournament on the final day. Campers train with technical equipment like the Trackman or Sam PuttLab. In the case of bad weather, we will use an indoor training area in Bad Ischl which offers the perfect wet weather training location.

The course is for children aged 12 to 15 years old, from around the world, that currently have an A2 or B1 level of English and are looking to make the next step. Our students enjoy excellent online classroom teaching by our passionate teachers. Classes will be differentiated to cater for individual student needs and abilities, and class sizes will be small allowing our students to benefit from more individual support. The academic programme will be enriched by personal projects that help our students consolidate their English skills.
Camp participants will attend 5 hours of formal classes per day, a total of 25 hours focused language tuition per week, and will be expected to keep a diary, written in English, throughout the camp. Learning is designed and delivered at each student’s particular level. Every student will have the opportunity to practise their reading/pronunciation skills with a member of staff during allotted reading times. The courses will be concluded with an official language certificate, and a detailed action plan.
