OUR PHILOSOPHY

Nurturing, instructive, fun & quintessentially English

At Country House Camp we create an environment that is safe and fun for children to make friends from all over the world, challenge themselves, improve their English, learn new skills, and to become more independent, accepting and responsible.

Infusing every step of the way, we want our campers to have the opportunity to experience quintessential British culture, not only through the fun of practicing and improving their language skills, but also through the experience of living and breathing a different culture and way of life.

Summers in Country House Camp therefore aim to help children become stronger people who learn to get along with others, understanding different cultures, manners and behaviour, and care for each other and the environment around them. Our campers live in a welcoming and close-knit community with children from all over the world

Our philosophy and programming are rooted in the core values of Acceptance, Independence, Responsibility and Teamwork. We put these values into action through a healthy and fun outdoor experience. In an increasingly fast-paced world, camp provides a nurturing, supportive environment in which children can ‘go back to the basics’ and focus on what is important.

Campers learn the importance of working as a team not only on the fields but in the bedrooms as well. Teamwork involves learning how to share and be respectful to others. Once learned, it is a lesson children will retain the rest of their lives.

Acceptance

Our campers come from all over the world. While numerous cultures are represented, the spoken language is English and the common thread among Country House campers is acceptance, tolerance and caring for people of all backgrounds.

Independence

For most children, camp is the first time they become fully independent of their families. They learn to take healthy risks, make decisions, and live on their own. The independence they learn at camp will help them succeed throughout their lives.

Responsibility

Our campers learn the value of their contributions. Whether it’s room cleanup or a football match, campers learn they have a role and that others depend on them to carry out that role to the best of their abilities.

Teamwork

Campers learn the importance of working as a team not only on the fields but in the bedrooms as well. Teamwork involves learning how to share and be respectful to others. Once learned, it is a lesson children will retain the rest of their lives.
