Activities and Sports at Z camp
Kids learn English best, when they are having fun
Students advance best in the usage of English during the time they spend with our team outside of class.
Our English summer camp includes intensive activity program that makes every moment at Z camp memorable. The variety of activities we offer guarantees that every child will be given maximum opportunities to practice English, while having good time with all the new friends here.
The camp area has 3 acres of playgrounds including beach volleyball courts, a martial arts area, swimming pool and a football field. And while the beach is the natural activity to think of, when you are just 400 m from the sea, we will not limit the free time activities to only spending time at the beach.
At Z Camp we aim to teach our students to:
Coached sport sessions
3 times per week certified instructors will lead our coached spots sessions
The camp area has 3 acres of playgrounds including beach volleyball courts, a martial arts area, a mini-football field, and a swimming pool. Additionally we use the nearby clay tennis courts and the water sports center on the beach. Special sport academies will run for the sporty ones and for those who always wanted to learn a sport and never found the time during the academic year.
Our variety of sports include:
Professional coaches will teach the children of volleyball and beach volleyball. Beach volleyball courts are within the camp area, strictly matching the International standards, and children will learn how to play on a different terrain and master the main techniques of passing drills, defense and attacking. For the skilled ones, special volleyball matches will be held.
The football sessions are lead by professional coaches and are suitable for boys as well as for girls. Advanced footballers focus on improving their technical abilities.
Many martial arts clubs will visit us during the course, so we can not confirm which week what kind of art will be taught in the camp. There will be a demonstration and an open practice of some famous ancient -Bulgarian martial art as well as most popular Eastern martial arts.
Certified English and Bulgarian coaches will be engaged with the practice in tennis. Trainings are held at the tennis courts in the camp. Children are divided in groups according to their level and age.
Surfing is organized in groups of 5 children, each child having 3 activities a week. For students aged up to 12 years, one occupation lasts half an hour unless the child has advanced on the surf and could stand 1 hour practice. Trainings are held on two different places according to the water level in the bay. Since this sport is more weather -dependent, a schedule could not be fixed in advance.
Swimming lessons will be held at the swimming pool on campus. And while advanced swimmers are also welcome to join, we aim our training mainly to students who need to learn to swim or to improve their confidence in water.
Three horse-riding practices per week in a group of 5 students are provided in the nearby Horse-riding schools. The duration of each practice is between 30 min and 60 min in accordance with the age and the experience of the students.
Music and performing
Singing, guitar, song writing or composing ...
With most of our Teachers and Mentors playing in a band or being members of a musical formation, music becomes an integral part of the life at Z Camp. Students who choose to join the Music Academy will be introduced to guitar playing and singing by a professional music teacher. Students who practice music are welcome to bring their instruments and become part of the camp’s musical formation professionally guided by the Camp Director. At the end of the course we have a music production where children will demonstrate their skills and enjoy a fabulous stage performing.
Are you sure these are my children?!
My daughter did not sing and my son did not play the guitar! What happened in the 2 weeks at Z Camp?
Thank you for discovering their passion!
Your child's stay at the Black Sea will not be complete without the local visits ...
To make sure our students get to know the local culture, the unspoiled nature as well as to have really good time, we provide one full day and one half day excursion every week.
Here is where we plan to go this summer
15 km from the town of Tsarevo, where Strandzha mountain surrounds the sea coast, a Thracian megalith sanctuary is hidden - "Begliktash". The children will feel the magic and the spirit of the ancient tribes who inhabited these lands many years ago. Also known as the Bulgarian Stonehenge, the mystical ancient Thracian rock sanctuary is the largest footprint left by the Thracians on our southern coast. This is where our ancestors paid tribute to the God-Sun and the Mother Goddess.
The Sand Sculptures Festival has become a traditional event and it is one of the interesting places to visit in Burgas in summer. A fairy-tale town of Sand where you can walk around giant figures representing different characters from children's films such as Shrek, Batman, Cinderella, Smurfs, Little Prince, lush palaces and more. Children and adults have fun at the beautifully crafted figures made by the skillful hands of artists from Bulgaria and abroad. Everyone who visits the fabulous city is happy to return every year and find new sand dreams that leave bright recollections.
What is a sea vacation without Aquapark? The newest Neptune Aquapark is located next to the castle "In love with the wind" near the village of Ravadinovo. A great variety of water attractions are waiting to be tried by the kids - typhoon slides with spiral tubes, thunder cruise, water whirlpool with intermittent slides, or just a swim in the pool. Sunny smiles and good mood are guaranteed.
The castle in Ravadinovo village, located right next to Sozopol, also called "In love with the wind" Castle, is a unique attraction not only for our country. Built from Strandzha stone containing traces of micro diamonds, the castle changes its color at different times of the day. The fairy tale splendor, as if coming out of fairy tales, the bronze sculptures, the fountain of desires, the walk in the beautiful park, the swan lake - all these moments will leave emotional memories to the children. They will have fun and participate in the "Escape If You Can" or "The Legend" games.
The mouth of Veleka River is undoubtedly one of the most impressive places on our Black Sea coast. A boat trip along the Veleka River will captivate your child with its beautiful scenes so that they’ll wish to revisit this breathtaking place. Only there, children will have the chance to see a Caspian marsh turtle, a cricket mongrel, a cormorant hood, a small black-tailed gull, a shaggy bird and many other birds.
The region around Tsarevo impresses not only with natural landmarks but also boasts a rich historical heritage. The exposition of the Historical Museum in Tsarevo will introduce the children to archaeological finds dated 3 000 years ago. Some of the unique treasures are the village of Sinemorets, a silver coin treasure, a gold treasure and numerous different finds that have been left to us by the Thracians.
The botanical garden, called by the guests "the Garden of Paradise", attracts over five thousand nature lovers every year. Children have the opportunity to get acquainted with over 2200 species of plants that are not typical of our latitudes. The rich collection of cacti is also curious - over 1600 species gathered from all over the world. Aunt Vasya, one of the owners, will spark children's imagination by telling a lot of interesting stories about the transfer of plants in Bulgaria, how they grow and what care they require. The Botanical Garden is located near the village of Velika, 16 km from the town of Primorsko.
Time spent together with the British teachers and activity leaders during the excursions allows the students to practice what they have learned in class and create memories that will stay with them long after they go home after Z camp
