Program Overview

Program Description:
The ECC USA programme is for older campers! Offered exclusively to campers 14-18 years old. ECC USA offers two weeks of complete immersion in the English language whilst enjoying an adventure in Annapolis, Maryland. The ECC USA program is different from a normal study abroad program. It's designed for students that are already confident in English. Our international students attend an American summer camp and participate in all the activities as if they're American. They sleep in American dorm rooms, eat American food and play American sports. Our students are forced to speak English all day every day.

As well as spending 10 days (Monday through Friday) at USNA sports camps our students will spend the weekend with our tutors visiting Annapolis, Baltimore and Washington D.C. area with an ECC representative. They go to a theme park, baseball game, visit the museums and The National Mall in D.C.

The ECC USA summer camp is different from all the other programs out there. We think the kids take a lot home from this experience! We don't want a normal travel abroad experience where the kids visit the USA but don't spend any time with Americans doing American things. This camp totally changes that! The students speak English all day. Their instructors aren't teaching them English, they're treating the students as if they are American because they are mixed in with all the other American kids. During the weekend is only time they're with the other international students and it's our time to visit the area so as well as speaking English they have the chance to visit American and do things Americans do! These little excursions are also accompanied by The ECC rep. and other American kids that volunteer to be with our group and make sure we're speaking English all day and doing American things. If you're not reasonably confident in English this program is not for you.
Setting Description:
ECC USA's camp is located in Annapolis, Maryland a beautiful town on the Severn River on the Chesapeake Bay. ECC USA's camp is organized with the United States Naval Academy and our students will spend 10 days at the university. Annapolis is America's Sailing Capitol and there are frequent boat races. The city center has loads of small shops, cafes and restaurants serving local foods like blue crabs and American favorites like Buffalo wings and burgers. During the weekend students spend a day visiting the town and even take a ride on the Woodwinds sailboat.

During the weekend breakfast is provided but we do a number of different activities and it's more fun if the kids each chose their meals, like an American hotdog for dinner at the baseball game!
