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, either morning or afternoon.

2019 Theme: Mission Impossible!

Action and intrigue surround this week’s Spanish camp!  Using stealth strategies of cracking codes, overcoming obstacle courses and treasure hunting for clues will all contribute to solving a puzzling mystery abroad.  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 Spanish.  And, it will all happen in Spanish! All language levels are welcome!! 

2019 Locations:

Registration for all Spanish day camps in the Twin Cities happens through our partner school districts.  Details and links will be provided here as we get them from school districts.
