2021 Winter International Immersion Camp

 

Keep your child engaged in learning this winter by joining Fairmont’s Winter International Immersion Camp! These two-week programs give your child an American school experience – broadening their cultural awareness and strengthening their English skills. Students join an age-appropriate classroom and participate in day-to-day learning and activities either in-person or remotely. Your child becomes a member of our classroom community, encouraged to practice their English, and to explore their interests in our supportive and challenging academic environment. International Winter Immersion Camp students will also receive an assessment of English proficiency which can be used to apply to Fairmont Schools for the 2021-22 academic year, and as a special gift, students that enroll in our 21-22 school year will have 50% of their winter camp fees credited to their tuition.

In-Person Study:

At this time, students wishing to participate in-person will be expected to complete a two-week quarantine in the U.S. prior to the first day of camp. This policy will be updated as additional guidance from state and federal authorities is received.
