Enrollment for 2018 is now open!
What is a Spanish-Immersion Camp?
Following the philosophy of language-immersion instruction, we provide a setting for your child to absorb the language naturally. Our camp is not a sit-down Spanish class. Just like you would expect of any summer program, your children will work on art projects, play sports and games, listen to music, dance, cook, eat lunch, etc. The difference is that ALL of our activities are led in Spanish by experienced instructors who are native speakers of the language.
Who can enroll?
Summer Adventure Camp is for children ages 3-4
World Explorers Camp is for children ages 5-9
Each of our two-week sessions will guide your child through a fun-filled discovery of the Spanish language and culture. Campers will enrich their linguistic, artistic and cultural experiences through hands -on art projects, sports, cooking lessons, music, games and more. No prior knowledge of Spanish is required, but we also welcome children who already speak the language at home.
*Students need to meet the age requirement by June 15th. No exceptions will be made.
Session 1: June 18–29
Session 2: July 2–13 (no camp July 4)
Session 3: July 16–27
Regular camp hours are from 9:15 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Children bring lunch every day, except for the last Friday of each session when we will celebrate a Spanish-speaking country with a traditional lunch fiesta! We will provide the food on that day. Optional before- and after-care is available from 8:00 a.m. and until 5:45 p.m. A snack will be served during the after-care hours.
Our summer staff is composed of the same talented and dedicated teachers who work in our Spanish-immersion preschool throughout the year. They are all native Spanish speakers and experienced educators who love sharing their language and culture with the children. We also carefully select upper high school and college students based on their knowledge of Spanish, talents and experience with kids. Our entire staff is committed to maintaining the highest standards of quality in education and safety at all times.
