Camp Information

For ages 4 - 9

Children have the opportunity to explore and continue developing Spanish while gaining knowledge of the rich cultural traditions of the Spanish-speaking world through stories, games, songs and crafts.

The main purpose of these classes is that learners hear, understand and begin to produce Spanish. In order to do this in a meaningful and entertaining way, students perform a variety of activities and tasks. The activities and tasks are the means, while developing language is the aim.
