Odyssey International Study & Activity Holidays


Odyssey International Study & Activity Holidays was founded in 2003 and we have successfully taught English to students from different countries. We have established a very good reputation for our lessons and for the additional cultural and sports activities we offer. We provide our students with wonderful opportunities for social and cultural development with effective language courses and a high level of pastoral care. We are anxious to welcome you and offer you an unforgettable and creative summer in Greece!

The children will have the opportunity to meet kids from other counties, a unique experience which broadens some ones way of thinking. This will help them understand and respect the differences that come from the nationality, the religion, the skin colour and the language that they speak. On the top of that children spend 24 hours a day in an English speaking environment under the Mediterranean sun...

Since 2003 we are running a very successful summer programme in Porto Heli, a beautiful seaside town and welcome children from different countries. Our programmes are the ideal combination of excellent English language tuition and unforgettable vacations where all the students will have the opportunity to enjoy the summer climate and the crystal waters of the Mediterranean. The Odyssey summer camp has a growing reputation over the past years and it is very common to have same students from previous summers.

Porto Heli is a seaside village set in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Surrounded by rolling pine covered, hills the village is situated in a vast bay, providing one of the safest natural harbours in Europe, it is a paradise for water sports enthusiasts. With 30 km of beaches and coves, there is always somewhere new to go for a swim or explore by boat. The lovely village centre offers a wide variety of shops, tavernas, bars, restaurants, nightclubs and discotheques.


ODYSSEY summer camp is hosted in Cosmos Club, an A Class hotel situated in the heart of the tourist area of Porto Heli, only a few minutes walk from beaches, shops, cafes and restaurants!

Lessons at ODYSSEY
summer camp

The syllabus has been designed for the needs of young learners. Maximum class size is 12 and our multinational classes concentrate on practical skills and communicative English (20 lessons per week). Most of our students enjoyed very much the lessons and they gained a lot at the end of 2 weeks mainly because of the variety of the optional programme.

The Odyssey placement test assesses the students'' communicative ability and their general language skills. The first part of the test assesses writing & listening skills, grammar & vocabulary, the second determines their level of oral & communicative ability. After the test, students are grouped according to age, nationality and ability & placed at levels that guarantee communicative challenge and interest. A certificate of attendance is awarded at the end of the course. Odyssey l offers classes at six levels according to the Council of Europe recommendation. The C. E. has standardised levels in order to produce Common European Framework of Reference for foreign language teaching/learning.
