English Camp program is designed to develop soft skills in which students are not able to gain during the normal study duration. Even though English camp is known to be a success among students, studies that look into the development of soft skills equipped in it are rather limited. Due to this, the soft skills incorporated in the English camp have remained unknown. Therefore a study has been carried out to gather information about soft skills that are consciously or unconsciously embedded into the English Camp program. This article is to describe a survey conducted with 114 students at a Malaysian university. Of all the seven main skills introduced by The Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia, the findings revealed that Teamwork skill had been frequently integrated in the English Camp activities, different from Information Technology Management skill, which had been minimally used. Finally, the data points to the need for future studies on the integration of Entrepreneurship skill in the English Camp activities.
