Leisure during the language camp
Benenden is fun!
Each day’s programme will be displayed on our activity board. Everyone has the choice whether they want to take part or not. So do not hesitate, join in!
Creativity and workshops!
In our atelier you can draw, paint and tinker to your heart’s desires, do handicrafts and be creative. The sets for the evening shows have to be made and many other things demand your creativity! Stage design and event design are needed and appreciated!
Sports and activities!
Tennis (13 tennis courts), volleyball, table tennis, cricket, baseball, rugby, football, squash, hockey, trampolining, slackline, diabolo, flag football, lacrosse, ultimate frisbee and many, many more – we even have our own small golf course on site! In case of rain, we have sports halls and an always-popular indoor swimming pool. Of course all the teachers and activity-team members are there with you in the afternoons and enthusiastically take part in the activities!
Music and musicals!
Sing as if no one could hear you, dance as if no one were watching you and show us what you can do in our band, choir, theatre or musical group! Everyone has the opportunity to try out being a top DJ in our disco, or a singer – playback or live! The possibilities at Benenden are almost unlimited. There might be another “Benenden musical” workshop. Lyrics will be written, dances will be choreographed and creative decoration for the stage will be made with expert help. The performances of the last couple of years were truly brilliant! Teamwork and plenty of ambition are called for.
In addition to the activities there are the so-called workshops. These are treated as part of the lessons: a form of “active learning”, so to speak. These workshops will be presented at the start of the course and each student can then choose their own programme.
