Join us for a global learning vacation for the entire family—right here in Minnesota! Overnight family weeks and weekends are a great way to spend time together, discover new international foods, play games, make crafts, enjoy music and take part in some old-fashioned outdoor fun. And while you’re all busy having such a good time, together you’ll experience the wonder of speaking a new language through our fun and natural immersion environment. Invite friends, aunts, uncles and grandparents—or whatever family means to you!
Family programs offer great preparation for a family trip abroad or for a child’s future summer experience at the Language Villages. Explore family heritage or learn about an entirely new culture! The best part is simply being together in a beautiful setting and being able to reinforce the importance of being a courageous global citizen. Family weeks and weekends are available in select languages.
We typically house two to three families (or more, depending on the facility and the size of family units) together in a cabin; staff does not live with you. Our cabins house 12-14 people, depending on the site. Bathroom facilities are either directly in the housing unit or a short walk down the path. Within each cabin, families are accommodated in semi-private areas. We do our best to put similar families together, taking into account gender of participants and the ages of children. If you would like to share a cabin with another family, please note this on your registration form.
