TEACH SUMMER CAMP
Tackling the ‘summer gap’ challenge through English enrichment classes
The Villa Soleada Bilingual School located in El Progreso, Honduras holds classes from August to May. In order to close the “summer gap” challenge, the school provides summer enrichment classes. Launched in 2016, the Summer Camp program offers unique classes for students attending the bilingual School. The program selects up to 10 teachers who teach a different skill, topic, or activity of their choice. Past topics have been science, music, geography, art, yoga, sports, and more.
The Villa Soleada Bilingual School will conduct 2 Summer Camp Sessions in July 2019. Each session will accept 10 Summer Camp teachers to teach for 2 weeks. Each volunteer is asked to cover a program fee of $600. This covers housing, transportation, and food.

“No words will ever be able to describe the emotions that I felt being there, but I would love to try to portray them. Working with absolutely incredible teachers, staff, and children on a daily basis is something that most people don’t get to experience.”
– Miss Amanda, Art Teacher during 2017 Summer Camp
Nearly two years ago, I spent two amazing weeks teaching for the Villa Soleada Bilingual School Summer Camp. I couldn’t have been more lucky. No words will ever be able to describe the emotions that I felt being there, but I would love to try to portray them. Working with absolutely incredible teachers, staff, and children on a daily basis is something that most people don’t get to experience. It’s the type of experience that lingers with me everyday and brings a smile to my face. I taught, I learned, and I had a time that I will never forget. I thought this organization was outstanding the first time I went down, so I went back a second and third time, which solidified that thought. I look forward to returning soon and cannot wait to meet more incredible people!
