    Spanish Immersion Day Camps
    (for children ages 5+)

    The camps are designed to give children a unique opportunity to learn or improve their Spanish language skills. They consist of one-week sessions. During each week, students participate in interactive games, music and movement activities, and arts & crafts projects that center around a specific theme. Beginner students learn basic language skills to supplement the vocabulary linked to each theme. More advanced students learn useful phrases, grammatical concepts and practice their conversation skills. Each week culminates with a sing-along and presentation, where the kids get to show off what they learned. Sessions run Monday–Friday. Min 6 / Max 16 students per session. Students may sign up for any number of sessions.

    This summer we will be learning vocabulary and participating in activities related to these fabulous themes:
