Junior Summer Camp in San Francisco, California

International English junior summer camp at University of California Berkeley gives students from 13 - 17 years old the opportunity to improve their English language skills while enjoying what this great Californian city has to offer. Students live and study on a world-famous University situated just a short subway ride away from the heart of San Francisco.

San Francisco has long been a favourite destination for language travellers. The combination of a mild year-round climate, fantastic sightseeing, shops and restaurants, bars and night-life, and some of the most beautiful scenery in the USA, ensures a steady flow of visitors to this relaxed but vibrant, diverse and above all welcoming city. It is the ideal environment in which to live, study and learn about American culture, offering excellent opportunities in sports, entertainment and the arts. Spectacular beaches surround the city and you can sail or surf here all year round. San Francisco has more restaurants than any other city in the USA, and is the home of many theatres, music and dance companies, as well as a variety of museums. On our junior programme, students will also have the opportunity to explore the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge, as well as the surrounding areas of Berkeley, Napa Valley and Carmel.
