In a nationally recognized program of language and culture immersion, we provide a quality and life-changing experience for youth who are prepared to be responsible citizens in our global community. Language and culture in our program are inextricably intertwined, as they are in life. Students will increase both their language and cultural proficiency in one of 15 different languages, as well as their global citizenship skills.
Students are residents in a Language Village, living the language and culture through daily life in this residential camp program, while increasing their language and cultural proficiency, as well as their global citizenship skills. The experiential, residential setting immerses the participants in the culture of the countries where the target language is spoken through food, music, sports, dance, games, and activities, and students build skills in a variety of communicative tasks, such as asking and answering questions, describing, expressing opinions, and telling stories. They function in language contexts such as stores, social settings, and homes. Language and culture are embedded in content, the content of daily life and of recreational activities (sports, crafts) and academic subjects (environmental science, poetry).
One or two week sessions begin each Monday from June 10th until August 26th. Each session has varying age limits.
