We look into the future

«Barcelona Miracle»: new generation

«DEC Camp Barcelona 2016» project was more than just a successful camp programme. It was a great achievement of our work, which was the main motivation for us to take the next step in the following year. In summer 2017, we continue to teach children English and develop their life skills in the context of «Barcelona Miracle»!

During the last 20 years Barcelona has become No.1 tourist destination among Top 10 Europe holiday destinations as a result of innovations and reforms in arts, architecture, gastronomy, urbanism, multicultural communication and thriving start-ups and technologies of tomorrow.
Our new programme «Makers of Barcelona 2017» is a successful combination of experience and driving inspirations of thriving Spain with talents and potential of Ukraine. «Makers of Barcelona 2017» offers our campers innovative selection of successful business cases, innovative ideas, original projects, urbanistic reforms and practical workshop sessions. Such experience will encourage children to develop their own projects and business ventures, which surely will become important for their city, country and the world. In this unforgettable journey we shall be accompanied by our professional partners of the project: FabCafe Barcelona, Barcelona Code School, DRAP Art Foundation, Photographic Social Vision, European University, Barcelona Metropolitan, Your City Barcelona magazine, Barcelona City FM, Born to Cook, Laura Personal Shopper.
We believe that children have all necessary talents and qualities to become the leaders of successful generation. But our main task is to show each and every child the horizon of new and endless opportunities

DEC camp is a successful innovative children’s camp. In our country it the only English language camp which is a member of American Camp Association and International Camping Fellowship. DEC Camp has taken upon itself the responsibility to lead Ukrainian Camping Association PRO CAMP, and all our efforts were not in vain! Every year more than 600 children are spending their summer holidays with us, and then attend our camp for the second, third or tenth time and dream to become our youth leaders. Children love us because they know that DEC is a family. Big and loving family where everybody cares for each other, we care for our campers and their future!
DEC camp is a team of professionals, which was formed around the idea of combining the drive of true recreation with efficient learning of English language. We employ certified teachers (native-speakers) from the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Canada, Spain and other countries, and our group-leaders improve their qualification each year attending training courses under guidance of coaches from American Camp Association.
DEC Camp is a developing innovative and intellectually stimulating environment, where we efficiently and harmonically develop the leaders of the 21st century. Our work is focused on developing our campers in tune with the time and on encouraging them not to be afraid to follow their dreams! But more importantly, to give them bright memories of their cheerful childhood!

Our team

We are strong, friendly and creative team. We have in our team certified native-speaker teachers, who have years of experience. Our group-leaders, including foreigners, are cheerful and easygoing people, who are able to create an environment of trust and establish distinctive communication with children. Our team has responsive psychologists, who are always ready to answer children’s complicated life questions, be that of personal, school, family or partnership matter, we also provide 24/7 medical supervision at our camp!
We work not only to provide our campers with opportunity to try out new things in life. We also need their feedback after each camp’s session, for that is needed for us to be able to provide them new and even better things and opportunities next time they visit us. We don’t give our campers just any assignment or work to simply occupy them and fill their time. Our goal is to bring out the potential of each child, to educate him/her how to live truly interesting, active and bright life, to give them a positive energy impulse for the whole next academic year!
