Mentors’ Favourite Moments of 2017

What a year 2017 has been! As we start 2018, we asked some of our mentors what their favourite moment of 2017 was in their native languages.

Uno dei miei momenti preferiti del campo estivo è stata la “escape room”. I nostri campers si sono districati tra mille prove, una dopo l’altra, mentre io da fuori cercavo di aiutarli senza però parlare! Sono riusciuti a risolvere tutte le prove, e a guadagnarsi una buonissima torta alla fine! Peccato però, che di torta per me non ne hanno lasciata neanche una briciola!

Funniest moments of 2017

This year has gone so quickly! As we look back at all our Articulate camps throughout 2017, we would like to share some of the highlights and the memories that we shared together. So, let’s take a stroll down memory lane with our funniest moments of 2017.

Maxime’s epic slide

He had to head straight for the shower once the game was over!

Let’s just say it wasn’t a big hit! So Marin (France’s own Ed Sheeran), came up with a song about the French onion soup. The campers loved it and they even sang it around the campfire! Onion soup! Onion Soup!

Welcome a French child this spring

We are looking for 11 families in Stewarton and the surrounding area to host a French child (aged 7-11), or two French siblings, from the 26th of April-1st of May 2017. Our partner organisation, Amis Mots, from Dijon in France have been coming to Stewarton with their students for the past two years and they love visiting our friendly Ayrshire town. The visit has been a big success with strong friendships which blossomed between the French and Scottish children.
