Useful Tips:

It is a good idea that children are involved in the packing of their luggage as this helps develop independence and maturity.

Providing and preparing this list can be useful for future family trips.

Your child is most likely excited about this camp, especially if this English summer school will be their first trip without you. Use this moment to encourage their striving for independence and for taking responsibility.

Make him or her feel proud of having your trust and he or she will make sure to justify it both with his or her behavior at the camp and with success in the English courses.
