Also at Easter, we organise many themed activities, in the open air, excursions and lots of fun..
ENGLISH FOR CHILDREN: Children learn English not only during the summer camp, but also during all the year with individual and group course. With us, they start learning a new language in a pleasant and interactive way. Beginning when they are children to learn English, it is a great start to obtain the linguistic abilities that they will need in their future at school and at work. It is also possible to get a certification valid all over the world attending the exams of “University of Cambridge” at the British School of Naples. The Cambridge ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages), a sector of the Cambridge University, has created some English tests for children: the Young Learners Tests. The Cambridge Young Learners Tests are indicated for children of the elementary school and for teenagers of the junior high school, they are thought to be funny and not to stress the participants, encouraging them to develop a positive attitude toward the study of English. The tests cover all the four linguistic abilities – listening, speaking, reading and writing – and are divided into levels: Starters, Movers and Flyers. The highest level is Flyers and it corresponds with the A2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), while Movers and Starters are level A1. Every child will get a certificate of the Cambridge ESOL that attests the obtained results, indicating the positive results, with the strong points and the ones to improve. The Cambridge Young Learners Tests are a great certification to reward the children’s efforts to learn English, pushing them to improve more and more.
The Destination Tourisms organises many other funny courses for children, like GUITAR COURSE. Our Junior Guitar Course is for children of 6 years old on, and it is held by an expert music teacher. Quickly, they will learn to play their first songs and gradually to develop their executive abilities. The guitar is one of the most indicated instruments since it is accessible and very versatile so it is suitable for everybody.
News of 2015 is the THEATRE COURSE for children and teenagers realised in collaboration with the acting company “Gli Uomini di Mondo”, an acting laboratory which purpose is to be a place of expression where to narrate, describing ourselves, and express a different listening of ourselves and of the others. Children between 4 and 7 years old experience a creative relation to their bodies: the chance of transforming mental images, the fruit of the relation with fantasy, so they verify the communicative power of their gestures and acquire self-awareness and self-confidence. Children from 8 to 11 years old learn the instruments and technique of the theatrical language and also instruments of social and personal identity, that are essential for the discovery of their own inner self. We enrich the communication, encouraging the mutual listening inside the group, how to communicate in a dynamic way and relate with peers and adults. Finally, teenagers are introduced to the charming world of the theatre dealing and playing with acting. The course includes theatrical activities on the movement and the perception of the space, improvisational performance, mime and body expression, exercise on the use of the voice, analysis of the theatrical text and the staging.
Furthermore, for children and teenagers from the elementary school to the junior and high school, we also offer HOMEWORK ASSISTANCE for the several school subjects, to support them with homework and study and to help them to become autonomous when doing their homework.
The Destination Tourism organises many FOREIGN LANGUAGES COURSES FOR ADULTS AND CHILDREN too. All the courses are held by qualified teachers, native language teachers or Italians graduated in foreign languages.

The Destination Tourism pays great attention to the training of its staff, to improve ourselves and offer a better service.

The Course is theoretical and also practical and has the aim of bringing out the entertainer that is in each of us and of helping the entertainers to discover the value of each child or teenager they work with.
