Duties and Responsibilities

Each teacher is required to perform up to 33 weekly hours of teaching (am and pm teaching) of a General English Course to teenagers aged 8-16 years or young adults aged 16-18 of differing language ability. All lessons are to be planned in advanced and have to be submitted to the DOS for review.

The teachers are also expected to create one common educational camp activity and one evening activity in the week (a quiz for example, or an outdoor group project).

At the beginning of each session all teachers will be involved in the testing and placement of campers into classes. At the end of each session teachers will sign individual course certificates and academic reports for their students.

The camp will be running on a program of 3h of English classes/day (6 days/week) for each student, and a 3h project work with the campers (curated by teachers, counsellors, instructors and other invited professionals). The projects centre around revitalising the camp-site base (a ski-resort in winter) through creative interventions and sustainable practices. A multitude of small projects (where we develop specific skills in kids), using the latest technology (3D printers, drones and all the best the internet has to offer in terms of apps and collaborative websites), working with artists (we run an Artist’s Residence in parallel during camp-time), dream big, act locally.

Some examples of the projects we envision:
– redesigning the the bus-stop from the highway to the entrance to the resort: from the old-forgotten Soviet relics into modern, artsy ones with mosaics, graffiti and painted murals.
– A new hike-trail in the mountains, with signage and a free-of-charge map to be given to tourists.
– New touristic ‘souvenirs‘ (key-chains, toys and other trinkets) – printed at our 3D printer and decorated with 3D pens; or sculpted from wood in our Arts workshop; or mini-ceramics ones;
– A new website and video add for the resort (involving drone-filming);
– Get the local community to put their available accommodation on AirBnB. The kids do the photographs, descriptions, create a business-plan with part of the profits going to an ongoing artsy redevelopment program of the resort.
– Create alternative renewable sources of energy, using wind, water and solar power sources.
– Do a Social-Photography project with the old babushkas (grand-mothers) selling berries, jars of marmalade and other local-delicacies. Create an online-sales website, agree with local Post to deliver the items nationally.
