What are Joy Theatre Camps?
Joy's total-immersion theatre courses have a variety of English course levels, suited to children from 3 to 13 years. Here children will have the opportunity to practice and develop their social skills, improve their confidence, public speaking abilities and level of English with professional actors and teachers, and perform in a professional performance for their parents at the end of the week. Camps take place in the fun and friendly environment of their local school!

In addition, with water games, language games, arts and crafts and fun with native British actors -Joy Theatre Camps are a great way to spend the summer!
Who are the tutors?
Our qualified native tutors, are selected through a rigorous interview process in the UK and further undergo our own training process and extensive background checks in accordance with UK guidelines. All teacher's undergo a UK DBS criminal background check and provide references from previous employers. All of the tutors are experienced, native speakers of English and have outstanding teaching and sports skill. Each Tutor teaches a small group of 10 - 14 children so that we can create an intimate learning environment where all students are able to participate, make friends and have fun as easily as possible.
