Concordia Language Villages are more than just summer camps; they are gateways to languages. Through complete immersion that teaches through real conversation, participants leave better able to speak and understand their target language in a surprisingly short time. Our summer programs combine the traditional fun of summer camp with complete immersion in one of our 15 languages.
Teens can choose from one- or two-week immersion camps, or even a full year of high school language credit through our accredited four-week Credit Program.
Choose from programs in 15 languages: Arabic, Chinese, Danish, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish or Swedish.
Villagers at Concordia hail from all 50 states and several foreign countries and lodge at one of our lakeside, scenic locations in the Northwoods of Minnesota. Our main site on Turtle River Lake (near Bemidji, Minnesota) features seven sites with culturally authentic architecture, and our chefs prepare food that is culturally appropriate for each of the 15 Language Villages. Experience incredible summer activities that allow you to live the language as if you were abroad!
