FACILITIES

At the Moira House residential summer camp students are accommodated in comfortable dormitories of mainly two to five beds with shared showers and toilets. There are plenty of shower rooms and toilets available and all are clean and well maintained. We make every effort to ensure that rooms are shared with children of different nationalities and of similar age so that they continue speaking English outside of the classroom and make new friends. Parents may request for their child to share with a particular friend and this will be considered but cannot always be guaranteed.

At the Moira House residential summer camp there is a social room in each boarding house where children can watch TV/DVDs, listen to music, play board games, etc. This is usually the place where children relax with a hot chocolate drink before bedtime. Our professional and experienced staff are residential within the boarding houses to ensure safety and 24 hour supervision.
