Twin Cities Day Camps | Various Ages
Twin Cities Day Camps are a great introduction to language, and a wonderful precursor to our overnight programs. Offered in partnership with local school districts, these programs are held at various locations throughout the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. Utilizing our trademark teaching methods, Twin Cities Day Camps include art, music, games, imagination, teamwork and snacks to introduce the youngest learners to language and culture. Programs typically run 4 or 5 days, morning or afternoon.
2018 Theme: Road Trip Hoopla!
Imagine a comical road trip in a far off land! The journey is filled with car games like I Spy, Road Trip Bingo, or Name that Tune! We’ll try to avoid obstacles along the way, but you never know when sheep will cross the road or when a tire will pop! At camp this week, we will explore China by car, stretching our legs at famous landmarks, taking photos, and laughing the whole way. And, we’ll do it all in Chinese! All language levels welcome!
