Around the World in 5 Days

Spanish, Mandarin Chinese & French

Regular Immersion Session

Pack your bags!  Campers will create a Language Kids World passport on their first day of camp, and ‘check-in’ in to a different region of the world every day for five days.  This jam-packed week will fulfill children’s wanderlust, as their voyage takes them to new far-away places.  The trip kicks off in Latin and South America.  Next, they’ll globe-trot through Europe, hop to Africa, then take off to the Pacific Rim by the end of the week!  Kids will see the sights and sounds all around the world while learning a new language.

Linguist Apprentices (Ages 3-5) – Through music and play, campers will develop their conversational skills in a second language. Children will engage in arts and crafts and hands-on projects while learning another language.

Language Ambassadors (Ages 6-10) – Campers will participate in project-based learning activities that will help them connect the foreign language they are learning to meaning, providing them the opportunity to develop their conversational skills while learning about fun and interesting topics.
