From the moment I interviewed Lilly, a 16 year old student from the United Arab Emirates, I knew she would be an outstanding student at our ESL summer camp in California. Her favorite subject in school is English, and during her interview Lilly spoke excitedly about her love for the United States and described it as her “dream place.” She also boasted about her love for Justin Bieber by saying, “I’ve been a Belieber since 2009 and ever since I’ve wanted to meet him so badly.”

Unfortunately we don’t arrange celebrity meet-and-greets at Greenheart English Camp, but what we did offer Lilly as a student at our camp truly transformed her. Lilly describes her experience as follows:

“This camp changed my life! I feel like I’m a new fresh person now, I loved the CCI Greenheart life and still loving it. I’m forever blessed that I made it to camp this year.”

At camp Lilly discovered new things about herself as she had the opportunity to explore new interests and hobbies, make new friends, and discover an entirely new country. Lilly now knows that she enjoys writing different types of poems, doing arts & crafts, and tie dying. She’s also made new friends from Taiwan, Italy, China, and Russia who she said “are not just friends. They are like my sisters! I love them to death.”

We encourage you to join our ESL Summer Camp next year in order to discover new things about yourself, make new friends, and immerse yourself in the English Language.
