Review: The English Camp Company seems more like an travel experience than a money earning summer camp program. According to the FAQ, “All camp counselors and directors are required to pay for their travel to orientation training week, and their travel costs from their final camp. You are required to have your own health insurance. The English Camp Company pays for all accommodation, main meals during the camps and travel expenses between camps.” Likely you’ll be staying in the accommodation or with the hosting by students’ family. “80 hours of English practice over a 2 week period and each camper receives: English Camp t-shirt, Camp name tag, ECC workbook, Certificate, Diploma”
