Twin Cities Day Camp | Ages 4-9
Twin Cities Day Camps are a great introduction to language, and a wonderful precursor to our overnight programs. These programs are held at various locations throughout the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. Utilizing our unique teaching methods, Twin Cities Day Camps include art, music, games and snacks to introduce the youngest learners to language and culture.
2019 Theme: Mission Impossible!
Action and intrigue surround this week’s Norwegian camp! Using stealth strategies of cracking codes, overcoming obstacle courses and treasure hunting for clues will all contribute to solving a puzzling mystery in Norway. Campers will work together to beat the clock before time runs out, by utilizing Concordia Language Villages immersion strategies of games, music, movement and teamwork to learn and practice Norwegian. And, it will all happen in Norwegian! All language levels are welcome!
