“A Sound Mind in a Sound Body”
The American College of Greece has a long tradition of excellence in the field of education in Greece. The Summer Camp, offered by the Deree College Athletic Club, is a part of this tradition and has provided an unparalleled experience for thousands of children; an experience which stems from a rich and balanced athletic, educational, and cultural program, which actively supports the philosophy of Pierce, inspired by the ancient Greek dictum “A Sound Mind in a Sound Body”.
The Summer Camp aims to develop the athletic and artistic skills of children 6 (going to grade 1 next September) – 14 years old (going to grade 9 next September), who want to spend their time creatively after the school year has ended. The children are divided into groups according to their age and knowledge level. The program is primarily in Greek but the English language is also used by the instructors.
