What People Say About Us


Ellie Fruhauf

“ELAC has been a major part of my life for 3 years now, enabling me to spend my summers working but enjoying myself at the same time. The opportunities, people and cultures involved in the course are really something special – and not to mention all the fun to be had!”

Katie O’Brien

“I like how ELAC is different every day. You’re constantly surprised by the kids. It has also given me the opportunity to meet people from different countries and cultures that in my regular life I wouldn’t have the opportunity to meet. I also like the atmosphere we have amongst the staff; everyone gets on and helps each other which makes for a very positive and fun environment in which to work.”

Kevin Reid

“Working for Elac is a life enhancing and transferrable experience. Over the past couple of years Elac has given me opportunities to develop my teaching, management and people skills in an international and exceptionally cultural environment. Ultimately, Elac has brought about some of the best memories of my life!”

Jason Harrison

“I’ve worked for ELAC since 2012 and every Spring, I begin to feel excited about coming back again for another summer of hard, but rewarding, work. What l like most about ELAC is the family-feel that exists. Despite running a number of centres throughout the UK, ELAC retains the support networks and personal development opportunities that you would expect to find in a much smaller business. The days genuinely fly by, and before you realise it, the summer has ended and it’s time to say goodbye to all the new friends you’ve made from all over the world. I honestly can’t recommend ELAC highly enough.”


Activity Leader
"I've worked for ELAC for two years now and it just gets better and better. The staff were really great and we had lots of fun at and around work. It's an excellent opportunity to meet new people and make new friends from all around the world! The kids are all really great and some of them come back each year and remember you which is really nice."
