It has long been planned to send my son to summer camp abroad - last year we went to this camp.
The son immediately said that he wanted either at MIT or at Berkeley (he is interested in programming, so he wanted technical universities). We consulted with managers and chose Berkeley because of the location: I really liked the San Francisco sightseeing program - a very beautiful city, you can see a lot of things. The leisure program itself is free (included in the price), there is a paid one, and there are many options. We took almost everything - that is, the son went to Alcatraz and went on a tour, and took a photo of ITEDE at the Golden Gate. There was still an opportunity to take a combined version with a trip to Los Angeles, but we reasoned that San Francisco would "eat up" time, and we refused.
The camp is excellent, no comments: there are many children, almost all are foreigners, lessons are unobtrusive. The son is especially pleased that Berkeley’s dream come true. In the near future we will go to Smapse again, we will calculate the options to study there: of course, it is very expensive, but we will try to get into the grant programs, there are a lot of them. Here is a separate plus to our consultant-manager - according to our experience, not all agencies are aware of such opportunities to save, they offer only standard programs like Erasmus, and there are much more of them.
