Overview

Camp Cooper is the UK’s leading American-style overnight summer camp based in Scotland, for children aged  7-17. 

Campers create a personalised summer programme designed to suit their interests. We offer exceptional tuition in tennis, dance, journalism, cooking, art, music, film-making, outdoor adventure, performing arts, football and sports.

We actively encourage campers to develop life skills and focus on forming friendships, inspiring creativity and having fun.

We have two locations:

  • Camp Cooper in Crieff
  • Camp Cooper in Edinburgh both in Scotland

Academics

All English language lessons provide daily instruction from specialist English teachers and are designed to practice camper’s core skills including grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing and listening skills with an emphasis on improving camper’s confidence in spoken English.

Teachers are selected for their ability to bring out the best in all campers and our interactive syllabus ensures lessons are engaging, fun and significantly improve camper’s ability.

Campers Benefit From:

  • 8-10 hours of English language tuition per week
  • Maximum class sizes of 15 campers
  • Focus on teaching English in a fun, creative and supportive environment

On the first day of Camp, each camper’s English level is assessed. This means that they will be able to learn with others who are at a similar stage.

At the end of every week, teachers re-assess each camper to see if they have made sufficient progress to move up to the next class

there are 4 different levels:

  • Classes for Beginner CampersClasses
  • for Intermediate Campers
  • Classes for Advanced Campers
