SUMMER IS COMING! OLÉ!
I’m beyond excited for Spanish camps this summer! We’ll be running a full summer of various programming- from several weeks of full-day camp for kids and toddlers, to half-day camps, and shorter mini-camps again. We’ll have a mix of all of the kids’ favorite activities, from the bounce house to water balloon relays, splash pools, oversized forts, art projects galore, and add in new activities like building and racing cars, digging for treasure, meeting animals, sand art projects, and more, depending on the week your little signs up for!
As always, we’ll be learning a ton of Spanish throughout the day in a very enthusiastic, silly way and using an increased amount of Spanish each day, and kids will learn a LOT in the course of the week!
While every week of summer camp will include a similar basic structure of beginning with songs and a learning game, extensive playing outside, bounce house/ splash pool/ sprinkler time, and specialty activities like sports, yoga, and gymnastics, art projects, and more, there will be themes that we base some activities on which will change week by week (see more information below). Full day camps will have a rest time in the early afternoon when kids can nap if they wish or do a quiet solo activity like water pens, delve into the library, magnet art, etc. to recharge, as we will be very active and outdoor-based in the mornings and later in the afternoon!
As for my background with camps, this will be my fourth summer running a camp, and eleventh summer working at them. I am a National Camping School certified resident camp director, and ran Lenhok'sin High Adventure Trek camp, worked at Bowman Boy Scout camp, L'ecole Bilingue Spanish toddler immersion camp. On a personal note, I simply LOVE all things summer camp and making this a way for your little one to learn some awesome stuff while being able to enjoy the magical greatness that is summer- playing outside with friends, running around, being free, splashing in water, making a mess, and making amazing memories and new friends. I can’t wait to have you all join us for some incredible fun!
