SILC Creative & Entrepreneurial Summer Camp


 

ONE OF EUROPE’S BEST SUMMER CAMPS IN FRANCE:

CREATIVITY, ENTREPRENEURSHIP, FUN & ADVENTURE

Learn with artistic masterminds and well-known entrepreneurs

The programme is offered by our diverse team of senior trainers and industry professionals, from award-winning photographers to well-established filmmakers and contemporary artists and storytellers as well as visiting experts. They have both the passion for and experience working with students from around the world and are eager to share their knowledge and expertise with you.

A Summer Art Programme for Everyone

The camp offers you the opportunity to explore and develop your talents in fun and creative ways and is designed for students who want to explore a wide range of experiences, for those eager to delve deeply into a particular creative skillset or for students with an entrepreneurial or artistic spirit. At the same time, this is also the perfect experience for students with no creative, artistic or entrepreneurial experience but seeking to discover their talents and potential.

A UNIQUE LEARNING EXPERIENCE

Explore – Create – Realise – Share

Throughout the residential summer camp, students explore the journey from generating an idea, putting it into action, understanding how it can contribute to their environment and sharing it with others in effective, authentic and powerful ways.

The creative camp follows a pioneering concept which offers students the opportunity to sample many different experiences, gain new ideas, skills and insights and discover themselves, but also delve deeply in a specific area of their interest, thereby providing both breadth and depth. As such, students experiment with visual and performing arts, media training, storytelling, filmmaking, photography, entrepreneurship and amazing outdoor camp activities; at the same time, they create their own project during the camp, which lends the possibility of focusing in-depth in a specific area of their choice. Students get tailored guidance and personalised feedback from our caring and expert team, which helps them grow as individuals, improve their skills and optimise their camp project, which can later serve as an important element in their portfolio or university applications.

All this amounts to a unique experience that is very fun, meaningful and truly memorable.

An amazing 2-week programme

The SILC Creative & Entrepreneurial Summer Camp offers a rich and balanced programme incorporating creative activities, entrepreneurial  training, outdoor activities as well as opportunities to explore many splendid areas of the French Riviera.

In Week 1 we focus on exploration, self-discovery and self-expression. With guidance from our senior trainers, award-winning photographers, filmmakers and artists, students get to experiment with a variety of creative activities and set out to create their own camp project whereby they focus in-depth on areas of their choice.

Typical day at camp

Mornings

Students wake up in their comfortable and modern ensuite bedroom shared with one other student, before enjoying a healthy and tasty breakfast prepared by our excellent in-house chef. The mornings will either find us on-campus immersed in a creative activity, our personal camp projects and interactive entrepreneurship workshops, or taking advantage of the cooler temperatures to explore the area through rock climbing, mountain biking or hiking before heading back for lunch.

Afternoons

From a workshop on storytelling in the coolness of our mansion or conducting an interview in the garden, to relaxing outdoor activities like snorkelling, horse riding, waterskiing and a high-ropes course, every day offers a balanced, memorable and truly unique experience.

Exploring the Riviera

In addition to the daily creative, entrepreneurial and outdoor activities, we also explore the rich cultural heritage and stunning nature of the Riviera, through fun excursions to Gourdon, Nice and Grasse and short expeditions in the area, such as snorkelling, mountain biking and horseback riding.

Idyllic evenings

In the evenings we enjoy a more relaxing programme with a barbecue or karaoke in the garden, swimming or developing our projects. On other occasions we have a more active programme with fun social activities like golf, laser game or go karting.
