Activities and Excursions
All Embassy Summer centres offer exciting social programmes with lots of activities and excursions when students are not in the classroom and during the weekends.
All Embassy activities and excursions are fun, educational, and focused around our six Embassy Life Skills, to make sure our students get the most out of their Embassy Summer experience.
Our social programmes include a range of on-site activities, which differ depending on centre facilities. It can be anything from a volleyball tournament to playing mini Olympics on a nearby field. Our half-day excursions often include a visit to a famous local sight, sometimes with a historic element and sometimes it can be a shopping mall, a museum or a scenic place.
The weekends are often spent on full-day excursions to a nearby city. Below are a couple of our most popular full-day excursions and some of the activities we offer there:
