LATIN CAMP 2022 (Mon 18th to Sat 30th July)

18 July 2022 - 30 July 2022

Re. LATIN CAMP 2022 (Mon 18th to Sat 30th July), from David Stephenson… Dear Colleagues,
I am delighted to announce that we have now opened for applications to join us this summer – please visit for full details and simple online application. 2022 dates are Monday 18th July to Saturday 30th July, once again at Harrogate Ladies’ College after a hugely successful first Camp there in 2021. The website has full details on all our different courses suitable for school students and how we feel each age group will benefit. It also contains details on such things as our costs, our tutors (who come almost entirely from teaching backgrounds and usually at highly regarded UK schools), the facilities and accommodation, our typical programme of events, our policy on U18 students and hopefully a feel for “Camp life” generally. The usual minimum age is post-Y10 but we will consider post-Y9 students if they have studied Latin for at least three years or wish to join the beginners’ group. We also have various bespoke courses for teachers so if you know someone new to Latin teaching (this could equally be an NQT or an experienced teacher of another subject), please do pass this onto them. (We can usually secure at least partial funding for places on these courses.)
We were delighted with the success of the remote Latin Camp in 2020 – students and staff alike made the very best of it – but it was not a patch on the live version we were delighted to deliver once again in 2021. The classes, grammar clinics and talks can be effectively replicated remotely but that’s about it – so much learning happens in all the “in-between” moments, be they in small groups between lessons sat out in the sun, or at night in the boarding houses. That said, Latin Camp is about so much more than just reading Latin. It’s about the camaraderie of meeting like-minded people. It’s about bonding in the houses. It’s about witnessing the interaction of staff, students and speakers. It’s about the joy of the Hellenic Bookservice visiting and setting up their shop just for us. It’s about the quiz, the site visits, the staff play, the costume party. It’s about discovering, identifying with and joining a wider community of classicists, making contacts and friends for life. Please do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions or indeed suggestions – I would love to hear from you. Yours sincerely, David Stephenson JACT Latin Summer School
