Language Discovery 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, Language Discovery Day Camps include art, music, games, imagination, teamwork and snacks to introduce the youngest learners to language and culture. Programs typically run four or five days, either morning or afternoon.

2020 Theme: Shark Tank!

Fun and imagination are the keys to unlocking a great camp this week! Campers will use innovation and creativity to design inventions and share their ideas with project-hungry investors! We’re launching our 2020 virtual camps with REAL language, REAL culture and REAL people. Working in small virtual groups, these hands-on entrepreneurs will develop and “sell” their ideas in creative ways. And, it will all happen in Spanish!

Participants will experience immersion online in playful and creative ways. Here's what you can expect:

  • Fun language and cultural immersion with our world-class Village staff
  • Engaging, interactive and creative experiences - all in the target language!
  • Both indoor and outdoor time
  • Friendships with others around the globe.

All language levels are welcome, as activities are designed with both new and more advanced speakers in mind.  Register now!
