What should I expect from my summer camps in France, Germany, Spain, the USA and England with Nacel?
Nacel French summer camps, Spanish summer camps, English summer camps and German summer camps share a unique ethic: we aim at developing a team spirit, empathy and a fair play attitude among the campers, while improving their language practice in the daily life.
The goal of the language and sports summer camp is to develop the participant's knowledge of the local language in an international context: during the summer camp, participants share various sports or activities with young people of many countries but use a unique language, the local one: French, German, English or Spanish. Practising sports together is universal: communication will develop smoothly while training and playing all together.
Keep healthy: All our summer camps have a non smoking policy.
AGE : 12 to 17 years old. Note that the summer camps in Germany are available for students aged 11 to 16 years old only.

Campers will attend French classes, German classes, English classes or Spanish classes for an average of 15 hours per week.
