Thematic Unit for our Language Immersion Camps and Classes
Global Spanish Adventure
Embark on a cultural voyage with our “Global Spanish Adventure” camp, a one-of-a-kind thematic unit designed for children who are enthusiastic about exploring the world and learning a new language. This camp offers a unique opportunity to ‘visit’ a different Spanish-speaking country each day, where campers will discover the rich cultures, fascinating places, and unique traditions of these diverse nations, all while being immersed in the Spanish language.
Daily Cultural Exploration: Each day, our young adventurers will journey to a new Spanish-speaking destination, from the sunny beaches of Spain to the majestic Andes of Peru, and the vibrant streets of Mexico to the historic plazas of Argentina. Campers will learn about each country’s geography, landmarks, and cultural highlights, making every day a new and exciting exploration.
Immersive Spanish Learning: As children ‘travel’ to these countries, they will be naturally immersed in the Spanish language. Our activities are designed to introduce and practice Spanish vocabulary and phrases related to travel, geography, culture, and daily life in these countries. This immersive approach allows children to learn Spanish in a context that is both meaningful and enjoyable.
Interactive Cultural Activities: “Global Spanish Adventure” is filled with a variety of engaging activities that bring the culture of each country to life. Campers might participate in a traditional dance from Colombia, create a craft inspired by Chilean indigenous art, or engage in a scavenger hunt that reveals facts about life in Cuba.
Learning about Landmarks and Natural Wonders: An exciting part of our journey is learning about the famous landmarks and natural wonders of each country. Campers will explore the historical significance of places like Machu Picchu in Peru, the Mayan ruins in Guatemala, or the unique wildlife of the Galápagos Islands in Ecuador.
Cultural Appreciation and Global Awareness: Our camp promotes an appreciation for the diverse cultures and traditions found within the Spanish-speaking world. Children will gain a broader understanding of the various ways people live, celebrate, and interact in different countries, fostering a sense of global citizenship and respect for cultural diversity.
