Liberty English Camp -- Sample Schedule by dmpe


									Liberty English Camp -- Trakai 2006 Schedule
Day One -- 29 June

Teachers and organizers arrive; spend late afternoon - evening together informally,
getting acquainted. This is in Vilnius, not at the camp.

Day Two -- 30 June

Teachers/organizers go to the camp location early afternoon, unpack, set up, look around.
In mid-late afternoon, there's an organization/orientation meeting, which may include
practice sessions/role playing for new teachers, to get comfortable with the camp
"teaching style".

Students arrive by late afternoon, in time for a welcome BBQ/campfire and brief

Day Three -- 1 July

First full day of class sessions. Each session is one hour -- two in the morning, three in
the afternoon. Between breakfast and the first session, we will have guest speakers from
the Lithuanian Free Market Institute (LFMI), who have given us much support over the

We have five "class periods" and five teachers (minimum), so we divide the students into
five groups. Every hour, the student groups move to a different teacher (like US high
school). Each teacher repeats the same "lesson" for each group, and teaches a different
lesson each day.

Day Four -- 2 July

Second day of class. This might actually be only half day, with the afternoon devoted to
a tour to see the local sights, with the afternoon lessons to be made up another day.

Day Five -- 3 July

Third day of class. This might be a full day, or another half day consisting of the lessons
remaining from Day Four. A free afternoon could be used to prepare for debates.
Evening activities include debates, movies, campfires, and informal music-making.

Day Six -- 4 July

Fourth full day of class. Since this is the final full day together, we have an evening
program consisting of, for example, a boat trip on the lake, then a BBQ and campfire.
Although the camp is not an "American event", we will all celebrate freedom together
today with a fireworks display over the lake.
Day Seven -- 5 July

Closing/departure day. After breakfast, we spend 2-3 hours in closing activities, all
together as a group -- certificates, special thanks, and some sort of talent show. The final
lunch is served at the normal time. People leave at various times during the day,
depending on their bus/train/plane connections.
