English Crazy Camp is a booming, action packed, emotional roller coaster. It’s the five-minute movie trailer that will get students jazzed, excited, and wanting to learn more English.
English Crazy Camp is run entirely by volunteers. University students in English Crazy Club prepare songs, games and activities for the weekend camps as a way to practice their English. English-speaking foreigners are recruited to help out, and they get a chance to see the heart and soul of Thailand. Without the volunteer staff, rural schools with small budgets would otherwise not be able to host English camps for their students.
The camps last for two days. During that time, the campers sing songs, learn everyday English phrases, and practice conversational English. At the end of the weekend, everyone is happy from two days of fun, and sad to say good-bye.
Below are pictures and podcasts from two different English Crazy Camps, at Chumchon Ban Nayia School and Patumratchawongsa School, both located in Isaan, Thailand.
