     destination. It has more top ranked universities than any other
     country. It’s still the world’s number one economy. From the Statue
     of Liberty to the Golden Gate Bridge, from the Rocky Mountains to

Teenage Adventure Program

    The Teenage Adventure Program (TAP) is a summer/winter camp for
    students from 14 to 17 years (inclusive).    TAP is an international
    program for individuals or groups of students who want to improve
    their English level, experience the culture of Australia, the USA,
    Canada or the UK, make international friends, and have a lot of fun at
    the same time.

    These programs are generally located on university, college or
    boarding school campuses with male and female dormitories, a
    cafeteria for all meals, and Sol Camps staff to supervise, help and
    monitor 24-7. Some programs offer a homestay option, too, where
    students can live with a local family, which gives them even more
    opportunity to practice their English and experience the local culture.
    Day students who have local guardians or parents are always
    welcome.

    Morning multi-cultural, multi-level, English classes are held
    on-campus with qualified ESL teachers, and are followed by a wide
    variety of afternoon and evening activities, sports, games, and
                                                                              QUICK FACTS
