Access students from across Cambodia gathered in Phnom Penh to participate in the 2016 Access English Camp.  The Access English camp gave Cambodian Access students a chance to visit and learn about historic sites in Phnom Penh, meet other Access students, make new friends, interact with native English speaking teachers, and practice using their English. The camp was coordinated by Embassy staff and English Language Fellows Kim Chilmonik and Aileen Fermin with English activities facilitated by Peace Corps Volunteers, Access teachers, and Fulbright and Undergraduate State Alumni Association of Cambodia Volunteers.

Participants made s’mores, sang campfire songs, and participated in a talent show. They also made poster presentations in which they offered community service projects that could be implemented in their villages or city. Additionally, participants experienced an informative tour of the Cambodian Royal Palace, and enjoyed a performance by Cambodian pop star Ma Chanpanha. Hopefully, the students will retain the confidence they gained at the camp and will stay motivated in their studies for the rest of the year.
