Those interested in attending the camp will need to attend a short interview. In the interview you will have a brief conversation (2-3 minutes) with an English speaker. This helps us to get to know you better, determine your English level, and to find out if you are a good fit for the camp.
There are limited spots available at the camp, so you must attend one of the interviews to be considered!
If you desire to participate in the camp, but cannot attend an interview, please call us at 098 561 7897.
When: Monday May 17 or Tuesday May 18 (you will be given a time to come between 18:00-20:00 when you register)
Where: Interviews will be held in Ivan Franko Park, by the Rotunda. In the event of rain on either day, there will be the option of either coming a different day later that week or doing your interview on Zoom.
