A family vacation in Phuket Island is without doubt a nice idea to benefit of the numerous white sand beaches and clear waters of Thailand. When parents are relaxing, teenage kids definitely want more enjoyable activities for themselves. A summer camp in one of the International schools in Phuket is nice to consider as youths can enjoy being with other teens while their parents are laying on a beach mat.

These summer camps are usually for non-English speakers who learn English in addition to the practice of sports like football, swimming, tennis and golf. There are of course other options oriented more on sports for native English speaker teenagers. Phuket is the ideal place in Thailand for a summer camp. This is what Melanie, a 13-year-old teen, is saying about her experiencing a summer camp:

"This camp was very interesting, it was a camp where we studied and had activities every day. When we arrived at the Phuket airport, a few teachers welcomed us and drove us to the school by van. This school was huge, with wide green areas including football pitches and several indoor halls for other sports. There were also two swimming pools, a small pool for kindergarten and primary children, and a large pool for secondary children."

A summer camp is not only a solution to occupy children during a family trip, but a unique experience for young people who can be sent alone to Phuket and be very well taken care of by the school organizing the summer camp. There, they can meet friends of their age of different nationalities and have fun lessons like cooking in addition of the language classes. Melanie comments her learning experience:

"We were about 30 students during the two weeks camp. During this summer camp, we had English classes in the morning and evening. We had drinks and snacks every two hours, and everyday we had physical education with basketball, football or badminton. For the English lessons, there were three class-rooms with three different grades. In the second week of the camp, we had swimming and cooking!"

Some activities for teenagers can also be arranged for shorter terms like a week or on a daily basis in some smaller schools or organizations. Kayaking, yachting, snorkeling, scuba diving, jet skiing and banana boat riding are great water sports that teenagers will enjoy on their own. And for those teenagers who want to stay with their parents, there are always a multitude of fun activities that can be enjoyed together as a family.

Participating in a summer camp in Phuket can be a memory of a lifetime for many teenagers who will go back home with new friendships made. Phuket has top international facilities and schools that can accommodate parents and teenagers alike.
