I Have Two Summers Because I’m Greek

Greek Lessons OnLine Summer Camp through the eyes of a 12-year-old first-time camper

As wonderful as summertime might be, juggling work and school holidays can be quite stressful for those of us with children. Maybe this is why summer camps abroad have become so popular recently.

Greek Lessons OnLine (Greek LOL) is an online school that specialises in bringing the Greek diaspora closer to their cultural roots and language.

Every summer the Greek LOL team welcomes young expats aged 8 to 15 years from around the world, to one of the most fun camps in Europe, immersing them in the Greek language.

However, a camp is not a stress-free solution for anyone, especially if you are of Greek origin. We Greeks sure do love to keep our children close!

Stella Bompotsiari Vri, Founder & Director of Studies of Greek LOL, speaks to 12-year-old, first-time camper, Nikos about his experience as a student at Greek LOL Summer Camp.
