Camp Lango is a terrific way for kids ages 6-12 to learn Spanish while enjoying summertime fun. Campers spend the week immersed in an exciting part of the Latin American world. This summer's “Adventures in Peru” will teach children about Machu Pichu as the Lango kid explore the rain forest while learning about animals, plants, bugs, and the indigenous people of Peru. Campers will participate in art, dance, music, yoga, games, and story reading. Lango campers 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 at Camp Lango is guaranteed to boost your child's new language ability.
