We offer three program options:

Full-Board Resort-Style Residential

Homestay

Day Camp

Full-Board Resort-Style Residential Program:

All Full Board Residential students stay in twin bedrooms at the Villas, Loyola Marymount University’s resort-style student housing complex. The Villas are located walking distance of the Rolling Hills campus. The Villas offers two and three bedroom townhouses surrounding a courtyard with outdoor basketball and volleyball courts, a swimming pool and a covered bbq pavilion. The complex includes free wi-fi, a fitness center, and laundry facilities. It is gated and includes 24/7 on-site security.

Our welfare and support staff are on site at all times should your need help at any time. A 24 hour emergency contact phone number for students and parents is also available. International Student Medical Insurance is included in the program fee.

Homestay Program:

We have a limited number of homestay openings. In this program, you share a twin bed (2 beds) room with another student in the home of a carefully-selected American family. Homestyle breakfasts and dinners are included as is a bag lunch.

Day Camp Program:

If you wish to arrange your own housing, we can offer a Day Camp Program. With this program, you participate in all class and afterschool activities but arrange your own housing and meals.

All Programs Include the Following Activities:

Our Summer Camp offers students many exciting activities and excursions along with a full afternoon and evening activity program. The Los Angeles program even includes regular Saturday morning surfing lessons!

Los Angeles has many tourist attractions like the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Rodeo Drive, and Venice Beach. Each week there is one mid-week full-day excursion and half-day afternoon activities. On weekends there are optional add on excursion opportunities.

Afternoon excursions include:

  • Beach picnics and sports
  • UCLA tours
  • Movie Nights
  • Los Angeles Dodgers Baseball
  • Picnics at Will Rogers State Park
  • And much more!

Our full afternoon and evening activity program offers students a choice of intramural sports as well as other activities including movie nights, karaoke, student discos, bowling, beach cycling and more.

SUPERVISION OF STUDENTS

Supervision of students is an important issue. We offer lots of individual care and attention to each student. Our welfare and support staff are on site at all times – 24 hours a day. We have a 24 hour emergency contact phone number for students and parents.

The following levels of supervision are provided.

Residential Program: At The Villas

Staff are always on duty in the evening and in the complex at night. In addition there are security officers at the facility at all times. During the evening and night time students are strictly prohibited from leaving The Villas unsupervised.

Homestay

Our homestay families are carefully screened to ensure that you have a safe and welcoming home away from home during your visit. We have a 24 hour emergency contact phone number for both students and their parents.

Day Camp

Since Day Camp students make their own housing arrangements, we cannot supervise them when they are not at school or attending activities. However, like all of our other students, we provide them with a 24 hour emergency contact phone number.

 

Excursions

Staff to student ratios are strictly enforced and students are double checked on and off buses. During excursions, free time is often given for the students to explore a designated area, e.g. a shopping area. Students can do this in small groups unsupervised but they are told the time and place to meet and also where staff will be during their free time.

Classes

Any absence from class is immediately reported to the Camp Manager or Director of Studies and investigated.

OTHER NECESSARY INFORMATION

Meals

All meals are provided in large, comfortable cafeterias on campus, except on excursions when a packed-lunch is given to all students. Wholesome and varied food is served and special dietary requirements can be catered for. Please advise us at the time of enrolment if a student has any special dietary requirements.

Laundry

Paid laundry facilities are available at The Villas. Bed linen and towels are changed once a week, but no other laundry is included in the course fees. Homestay families typically provide laundry facilities to their guests.

Emergencies

A 24-hour emergency telephone number will be given in writing to students. All students will be issued with an identity card, which explains what action is to be followed in the event of an emergency or other difficulty. Students will be told to carry this card at all times.

All students must provide an emergency contact number to the staff on their first day. This should normally be the number of a parent/ guardian.

Students can study from 2 to 6 weeks. Most of our students apply for the program directly and are coming to the camp on their own. However, we also accept groups of students coming together. We also offer one free place for the group leader for each 15 students and discounted prices for the group leaders coming with the group of less than 15 students.

Please note that the number of places for groups coming from one country is limited in order to have a good international mix of students coming to our Junior Summer Camp from almost 40 different countries.

We don’t have application deadlines. However, all enrollments are subject to space availability. We recommend to reserve your place as far in advance as possible. Please note that all ESLBoards affiliated camps have limited capacity and many parents and group leaders are “Early Birds” and make their decision 6 to 8 months in advance.
