The philosophy of the Big Fish Academy is based on 5 values. They help to create an atmosphere and content in a way that children want to come back to us again and again.


We teach children to change the world, starting with themselves

From the very beginning until today, the Big Fish Academy directs its activity to achieve the big goals:

  • Be yourself and respect others

    Be yourself and respect others

    Self-expression is one of the key principles of the Big Fish Academy. We are happy with any personality - from colored hair to eating raw food and collecting dew drops. We are different and this is our strength!

  • English is like air

    English is like air

    Native speakers help children to know English during competitions of medieval knights or cooking apple pie. English here, there, and everywhere!

  • Have Fun!

    Have Fun!

    The path to a kid’s heart is through… game and laughter! We put a sense of humor into every moment. The director meets children riding a unicorn and conducts a Guinness World Record competition. 

  • We are support and motivation

    We are support and motivation

    We know that children strive to gain knowledge only when they see successful adults in front of them, whose example they would like to follow. This is how we treat every camper.

We follow the life-long-learning concept. It is the rules of relentless study of yourself and the world.

“Not a day without an exploration! The way is the reward!” - chant experienced campers at the start of the session. Children have many tools to do this.

The best alternative to the camps abroad

Our mission is to raise the generation of children who are creators of their lives, fans of life-long-learning who are ready to be responsible for their lives and who are ready to change the world, starting with themselves

Native speakers from different countries

Versatile and bright native-speakers from the UK, Ireland, the USA, Australia and other countries work at the DEC Camp. They don’t just work with kids, but they quickly become friends and mentors for the campers. Interesting personalities, biographies, hobbies, achievements, travels - communicating with them children fall in love with English.

English as a lifestyle

Due to the fact that children regularly communicate in English, they destroy the psychological barrier and start to progress quickly in the languages they learn. Parents of campers often say that their child has made more progress in a week than in a year of learning English at school.
