Whether a beginner Spanish language learner or more advanced, El Lago del Bosque provides the opportunity to gain confidence and greatly deepen language skills. Villagers will enjoy the authentic meals, games, arts and crafts, sports and songs of Spanish-speaking cultures. Villagers will be with others of their age group, supported and guided by Spanish-speaking counselors, having fun and trying new things! The beautiful Village allows you to be immersed in nature as well, with opportunities to enjoy the lake, the serene areas for chatting with friends and relaxing or doing yoga and the sports fields for activities. Take Spanish learning to a new level while making friends for life!

Join us in Bemidji or Cass Lake, Minnesota.

Typical Day

This sample schedule will vary depending on the age of villagers and session length as well as from year to year and site to site, but basic activities remain the same at our Spanish immersion program. These things include fun activities, delicious food, a mix of structured and free time, music and sports, choices of activities — and of course, complete immersion in Spanish language and in the cultures of the Spanish-speaking world!
