SPANISH IMMERSIOn

Enjoy a summer of language learning and other adventures at Terra Schools’ Spanish Immersion summer camp! Children will learn to speak Spanish through games, songs, and stories while diving into cultural traditions. Once a week, campers will enjoy a half day of outdoor learning in nature at a nearby park or green space. This immersive and fun Spanish camp is appropriate for all levels of Spanish language learners.

Will my child learn at their level?
