Summer Camp 2016

 

Camp Lango is a language immersion summer day camp for incoming kindergarteners and first graders where kids will have a blast while they learn a new language. For four hours every day your child will be playing, singing, cooking, working on art projects and theater, listening to stories, going on imaginary trips, dancing, listening, learning while having lots of fun ALL IN THE TARGET LANGUAGE!

Space is limited, so call now to reserve your spot. The student to counselor ratio is 8:1. Kids will be grouped by age and knowledge of the language.

Every week is a different adventure! Get your passport stamped! Take a trip without having to fly! Learn a new language while also enjoying other cultures: it's music, people, art, cuisine and traditions. Each week ends with a celebration for parents, family and friends!

Campers participate in daily immersion language classes by doing fun group projects and activities, to become more familiar with the language and increase their language acquisition skills. This develops understanding of the cultural aspects of the language, making learning an exciting experience.
