2020 VIRTUAL SUMMER CAMPS!
SUMMER IS COMING! OLÉ!
What a change we are facing this summer. I'm heartbroken to miss a summer of running around in person, and yet, eagerly looking forward to offering a virtual camp experience to help our little ones connect with one another, learn Spanish, and get to do great camp crafts and games at home!
I’m going to be rolling out a variety of new programs that I'd really love for you to check out in case they would help bring some joy to your quarantine life! We are offering a virtual camp program, which would start with a virtual circle, during which we'll sing songs together and have active group time- together though apart- and this time would be very active- jumping around the room, acting like animals, perhaps Caminando con Cosmo, and using and engaging with the prior day’s projects in a few ways, as well as reading a story together. For kiddos who do not like zoom, I can alternatively send a recorded video. I'd check in with everyone individually for three 25 minute video sessions throughout the week too, which you can schedule with me according to your family's schedule. Your child would have a bundle of cool activities that I’ll drop off the weekend before, and they can open a box each day to do the activities centered around our virtual camp theme. They’ll receive books in Spanish, and audio recordings to follow along so they can look at the books on their own. Their activities will be a mix of things they can work on individually and things that will be helpful to have an adult to help with, as I know many of you are working and doing projects with kids is nearly impossible, so this program will be designed to provide lots of independent fun for each age group, and give them a sense of community with their small camp group. Also, because I'll have the option for pre-recorded videos, your child will have flexibility to "do camp" a different day if you want more flexibility in that regard (let's say it's a beautiful day on Tuesday and you want to take a hike instead). I really hope this program can provide some change, relief, and excitement for children who will be at home and ready for some extra stimulation and something to look forward to! The rate is $125 for the week. Siblings are welcome to join in free of charge, and you can add an extra camp activity kit for $40 for them if you'd like extras.

I highly recommend signing up for a two-week session, but will also be happy to sign your little one up for a single week. We will fill up- programs are kept small to keep quality high- so please reserve soon if you want to attend a particular week and need those dates! A non-refundable 50% deposit is required to hold your spot, payable by check, venmo, or cash, and the balance is due by March 31. The deposit can also be paid with credit card on this website, subject to additional card processing fees. Your camper's required paperwork will be sent out via email. Please reach out if you have any questions, and I cannot wait to share summer fun with your little ones!
*To wait-list a camp, just send me your child's name and age through the contact tab and you will be contacted if a spot opens up. There is a chance our program will expand from 4 to 6 campers weekly, in which case we will be able to accommodate more campers on the waitlist, so do contact me today if you'd like to add your child's name to it!
