The World Around Me
American Sign Language
In this fun and innovative thematic unit, children will be immersed in American Sign Language as they learn to describe the world around them, their family, their friends and their beautiful city! Children will learn why people need to use sign language, they will be introduced to sign language symbols for manners, greetings and actions, and they will practice signs we use in everyday conversations all while having a great time making friends!
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.
