ELS Language Classes

The ELS language program help students develop their speaking and conversational English skills in and out of the classroom. Different from more intensive programs, which focus heavily on grammar, these sessions focus on engaging students in an active use of English.  Using sports as the common theme, professional ELS instructors use video and rich media sources to generate natural conversation, and to encourage this practice outside the classroom with their American teammates, coaches and staff.  Offered daily the two 50 minute classes enable each student to fully engage in a full day of sports while practicing their English and grammar in a non-threatening environment. Campers are evaluated at the first class. Classes are formed/grouped based on speaking proficiency and age.  Program is appropriate for beginner, and intermediate levels. Classes offered Monday – Friday immediately following lunch (See sample schedule below.

Well worth the expense!

My daughter went to the Nike Volleyball camp at Curry a shy girl.  She came home completely different.  Not only did the camp improve her Volleyball skills, she met some wonderful American friends that she stays in touch with.  But most important to me is that she came home happy and so full of confidence.  We can't wait to do another Nike Camp next year.  It was well worth the expense.

Overall this camp was great, I made lots of fiends from all over the world that I now keep in touch with and talk to all of them over social media or texting. This camp really helped me with technique since I am only a beginner!

Happy parent

I think it was a great camp. She learned a lot. My daughter was having such a good time, she called and asked if I would pay for another week. The staff was very helpful with this, so we let her stay. I felt very comfortable at check in that they had everything under control and covered. She met some great people that I believe she will be keeping in touch with for years to come.

I wish I stayed longer

You have to do this camp! The sessions are a super good workout and keep you in tip top shape for the week and the instruction is fantastic.  The way they have it set up worked really well depending on your skill level.  Also the people I met were amazing!!! I wish I could have stayed for the rest of the summer smile

Exceptional

This camp was really exceptional. The coaches were really good at teaching, the counselors in the buildings were extremely nice and would always help you out with a problem. You become very comfortable at camp and it is interesting to meet people from all over the world. It is a great experience to have and I am very happy that I did this camp. I improved with my volleyball skills and my people skills. Meeting all these new people makes camp that more interesting.

Step up your game

The Nike Volleyball camp at Curry pushed me to improve. I was tired, sweaty, and sometimes a little frustrated but the effort was worth the gain in the end. I feel like I improved a ton and am excited to return next summer. Nike camps help you step up your game, and give you a fun experience at the same time.

Nike sports camp is a great place to learn more about your sport but to also make great friends and have a great time at camp. Its not just sports because the evenings are saved for going out and bonding with other people from your sport and from other sports. The coaches are amazing and nice but also really help you with your skill. I highly recommend the camp to anyone thinking about going.
