English summer camps in Anykščiai are for 12-18-year-old teenagers. All camps take place in AKS Anykščiai campsite. Teenagers live in the tents they bring on their own. Each shift is lead by at least a few international teachers. Register early for the best price.


ASSISTANCE FOR FOREIGN PARTICIPANTS: If you cannot find the information you need, please contact Aurelija (English) on +370 627 24960 for all the details or Ligita (Russian) +370 670 06287. 

LANGUAGE: the main working language is English; some teachers can also communicate in Lithuanian, Russian, German, or French.

LANGUAGE PRACTICE: most activities are held in English and take up 8-9 hours per day (lessons, games, projects, and most events).

BUSYNESS: camp activities are based on constant communication. The main objective is to create team atmosphere, therefore participants are constantly involved in various activities and have very little free time.

ACCOMMODATION: participants live in tents that they bring themselves.

FACILITIES: in the camp you can find showers, hot water, toilets, and electricity. If it rains very heavily, it is possible to sleep in the house.  

FOOD: all meals are provided by us and cooked on the campsite. If you want, you can bring your own snacks. Attention: if your kid has special dietary requirements, especially severe allergies for typical food ingredients, please pack him or her things he or she can eat. We do not have resources to prepare a separate tailored menu; we cook usual and veg options.

ARRIVAL: participants organise their transport to the camp themselves. You may come to the camp on Sunday evening, since it might be inconvenient to bring kids on Monday, which is a working day (if you choose to come on Sunday, please do that no earlier than 8pm.). For international participants: coming by car the nearest bigger town is Anykščiai or Utena; coming by plane the nearest airport is Vilnius or Kaunas, after that take a local bus to Anykščiai or Utena (it will cost around 10 EUR and last approximately 3 hours. The bus tickets may be purchased online here  https://www.autobusubilietai.lt/en/). Usually you will get cheaper flight tickets to Vilnius airport (VNO).  

PETS: there will definitely be dogs on the campsite, probably two or three. They are friendly and sociable, but if you have any allergies, keep that in mind.

RULES: the use of phones, computers, or tablets is restricted in the camp. These devices remain with the teachers, while the participants are allowed to use them every evening for half an hour. In case of an emergency, parents can always contact the teachers. 

OTHER IMPORTANT DETAILS: you will need a health certificate, parental consent, at least basic knowledge of English, a tent, a mattress, a sleeping bag, dishes, a foldable chair, warm socks and toiletries, insect repellent, a sack with the weirdest stuff (wigs, paint, strange clothes, accessories, glasses, etc.) for several evening activities, broad imagination and willingness not to worry about minor issues (e.g. a mosquito bite).

This camp is ideal for those who: 

  • like English language and meeting new people
  • want to get to know all other campers and feel safe doing that instead of getting lost in the crow and communicating with a closed circle of peers. AKS ensures an optimal number of participants, their integration, close collaboration with teachers, and does not allow any bullying
  • do not become upset when they have to spend a week away from home
  • like spending time in the nature, are not afraid of rain, smell of campfire, and animals
  • love challenges, various tasks, and teamwork
  • dare to ask questions, are curious, love exploring and discovering new things
  • are not addicted to any type of screen or would like that addiction to go away at least for a week
  • see time in the camp as an amazing experience, not a week-long exile

We would like to tell something to boys who like English but are afraid of the fact that such language camps are mainly popular among girls (we had to calm so many people who called us to ask about this, that we have decided to inform you about this aspect in advance and announce this in public): no, language camps are not only popular among girls; gender distribution in most cases is 60% girls and 40% boys, so go ahead and register for the camp without any fear.
