ACCOMMODATION

We offer full board accommodation in an American family. We carefully select upstanding families that are known for their high values to ensure they treat your son/daughter as part of their own family.

The host families are NOT PAID. They are hosting because they are eager to share this intercultural experience with our student. In the United States the families are often Christians and it is normal for the students to accompany their families to church, or to various activities for young people which are organized by the churches.

During the camp week, the accommodations are located in Central Oregon, where you will enjoy beautiful landscapes and warm weather. The camp is a high quality facility equipped with many top-level commodities such as a swimming pool, gym, private cabins with bathrooms for each group, a cafeteria with delicious food, and much more.

PROGRAM

This program is geared toward students who want to maximize their English practice through spending an unforgettable month with an American host family plus attending one of the best youth camps in the USA. The families live in the naturally beautiful states Washington and Oregon.

With this program the students will benefit not only from the total immersion experience of living in an American family for 3 weeks, but also from the unique experience of being in a camp with more than 400 American students.

Young Life Camp destinations:

Seattle is the biggest city in the state of Washington, in the Northwest part of the United States. It is known for its music and focus on coffee. In fact, Seattle is where the first Starbucks Coffee opened. This beautiful city also offers amazing natural beauty as well as an incredible skyline.
