It’s that time of year. Easter holidays are over, the countdown can begin. The reading logs have stopped coming home. Parents are frantically discussing end-of-year teacher gifts. My kids have begun the grand countdown to the Last Day of School. Summer is almost here and a long period (3 months in Greece!) of freedom is about to start. If you are a parent in the Greek capital or if you are visiting this summer, you may want to consider sending your kids to a summer camp in Athens.Today’s options are far more varied than you might remember from your own childhood. There are camps that focus on music and theater, arts and science, language, sports, circus themes, and computers. Summer camp can be one of the most rewarding, unforgettable experiences in a child’s life. Camp provides children with a community of caring mentors who provide experiential education that leads to self-respect and appreciation for life. All the outcomes—friendships, overcoming challenges, staying healthy and building character— prepare them for bigger, brighter lives down the road. In addition to great friendships and enduring memories, many important life skills are learned at camp.

English Language Summer Camps

Most of the international schools in Athens also organize summer camps. When my second summer baby was born, the camp of our international school gave me the freedom to spent extra time with the baby during those important weeks. Her bigger sister joined her school’s summer camp (ISA Melina’s Kindergarten) offering many hours of water play, games, and themed parties. It was also a great opportunity for her to learn more English.

      Hi Aida, I usually post a list of English language summer camps. However, things are a bit different this year due to the corona crises. Most of them opened however and I can recommend several. What part of Greece are you interested in and are you looking for an overnight camp or a day camp?

      Hello! My child is 11 and I am also looking out for English-speaking summer camps. The international schools are organizing activities but I haven’t been able to gather them all. Much is still unclear and especially about things for kids. Gyms will open up on 31 May, and we hope to have more information on sports clubs by then.

    Thank you for posting about Summer Camps in Athens this summer- greatly appreciated! The link to Little City Spots seems to be firewalled. Is there another website/ link that will have similar information? Thank you again!

      Correct, the Little City Spots is not working currently. Because of the corona crises, many of the activities on that page have stopped. However, some open camps are getting ready, and I will start gathering more information and share here or on my social media! Thank you for following my page!

    Hello Celeste! Thanks for all your efforts, and a great blog!
    We will be visiting Athens for a month for work and looking for short-day camps for our kids (5,8). The link in this post seems broken, has it been pulled down? Many thanks!

      Thank you so much for your kind words! Indeed the link to the page was broken, the company/website does not exist anymore. I have deleted that part of the text and I will start gathering information on summer camps. There is not much info out there because of the corona measures. Greece is slowly opening up and I hope to have more up within the next few days. Please check in again in a week or so!
