Excursions

Each week, there are two full-day excursions to a variety of destinations. Students are accompanied by staff on all excursions and can be given free-time if appropriate. Popular visits include:

  • Washington D.C.

  • Ocean City

  • Valley Forge National Park

On-Site Activities

The social programme is an essential part of any summer school experience and is an excellent way for students to socialise and practise their English with each other. In addition to traditional activities such as sports tournaments, talent shows and discos, other examples of Bucksmore activities include:

You Bet!

A team game in which teams of students bet on a series of challenges performed by other students or staff. Teams receive points for the correctly chosen winner of each task, and the team with the most overall points wins a prize!

Get Your Own Back

Usually held towards the end of the course, this is an excellent chance for students to get revenge on their teachers! Each counsellor comes on to the stage for a different challenge, and students are given the opportunity to volunteer themselves to try and beat the counsellor at each game. Whoever loses has to do a forfeit!
