Summer Spanish Camps

If you can’t show your kids the world this summer, why not bring the world to them by enrolling them in a camp where they will be immersed in Spanish language and culture?

Our Summer Spanish Camps are a terrific way for kids from grades 1 through 12 to learn Spanish while enjoying summertime fun.  Students spend each week immersed in an exciting part of the Latin American world.  Our dynamic, experienced team are native-speaking and fluent teachers.  Students spend each day moving from one activity to the next, including special "No English!" times, designed to provide an immersion experience while still allowing for a ton of fun.  A week or more of our Summer Spanish Camps are guaranteed to boost your student’s Spanish proficiently!

Increase Proficiency
Students don’t need to know any of the language when they arrive at our Summer Spanish Camps.  They’ll be surrounded by kids their age who are also interested in making friends, having fun, and trying new things.  They’ll enjoy the authentic games, arts and crafts, sport, and songs of the Spanish culture.  Prepare to be amazed by how much they will learn and how fast the week flies by!

Students may sign up for any or all weeks.  Attending additional weeks of our Spanish Camps has the advantage of students really coming away with a substantial amount of new information that can be used to help them gain increased confidence for their Spanish class in the fall.  
Students will learn more, understand more, and remember more.  They’ll be speaking in Spanish with ease and confidence before you know it!

Register Early 
Parents of students who haven't had much exposure to Spanish, are encouraged to purchase weeks early in the summer.  No week is a prerequisite for the next.  In fact, all topics each week are different. But for those who have stayed longer, we do revisit topics from other weeks and knowledge will build up. The fact that there are students who do the entire program, makes the level go up week after week, so the last 2 or 3 weeks are a little more challenging than any other weeks.

For students interested in becoming totally proficient in the Spanish language, adding all eight weekly summer camps may be the perfect answer!

Students are admitted into sessions according to the grade or subject they will be entering in the fall. They can go back to any class level for a refresher at any time but may only move up to the next class level with teacher approval after completing their original class.

Seven great reasons to enroll in our Summer Spanish Camps:
  1. To help students be better prepared to advance to the next level of Spanish at school;
  2. To note on college or scholarship applications;
  3. To learn a language not currently offered at school;
  4. To add another language already studied at school;
  5. To get a head start on a school language course;
  6. To participate in immersion learning;
  7. To develop literacy (reading and writing) skills in Spanish.

Payment Policy

Full payment is due at registration. Your student is considered enrolled when the following conditions are met:
• Registration and full payment are made by credit card, check, or cash.
• Space remains in the class requested. Registration will be accepted until the first day of class or until classes are full.  As classes fill, waiting lists are created and will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

We foster a positive and safe environment.  All students are expected to maintain proper behavior during the camp sessions. If a student displays inappropriate, disruptive, or disrespectful behavior toward teachers and other students, we will first approach the problem through positive discipline.  If this is not effective, we will contact the parents.  If the disruptive behavior continues, the student will be dismissed from the program and no refund will be given.

Safety and Security
The JD staff will provide supervision during regular class times for all students. Please indicate on the registration form any special needs your student may have. Students are to be picked up timely at the end of each session.
