Hundreds of thousands of satisfied language learners have experienced the wonder of speaking a new language through our fun and natural immersion environment.
Our one-week programs are perfect for first-time villagers who are ready to experience an overnight camp but may not be ready for a longer time away from home. Open to ages 7 and above, these programs provide the full immersion core curriculum along with all the fun arts, crafts, games and cultural exploration of the Language Village camp experience.
Our two-week programs are our most popular, during which villagers gain and enhance language skills and cultural knowledge through immersive experiences embedded in daily life. It's the CLVway! Through formal instruction combined with music, arts, sports and classic summer camp activities like campfires, swimming and more, villagers learn their target language and grow to become courageous global citizens.
Our four-week programs provide extensive opportunities for those ready to dive deeper into the immersive Language Village experience. Each four-week session is divided by an interim weekend, during which villagers have the opportunity to call home, do their laundry and take a break from the activity of Village life. It’s the CLVway, taken to the max!

Each Language Village has a unique and culturally influenced daily schedule packed with fun activities, learning and excitement! From sun-up to sun-down, villagers are immersed in the target language and culture in ways you cannot imitate in a classroom setting. Below is a list of things you can learn about and expect at camp:
We build a positive, supportive community of learners where anyone – regardless of proficiency – can benefit from our language and cultural immersion experience. No other educational institution in the United States provides the level of cultural context that Concordia Language Villages offers our participants. Our programs are rigorous, fun, intentional and time-tested.
Villagers’ school-year days are filled with noise and distraction. They are wired and complex. One of the goals of our program is to slow down, listen, tune in and connect. To effect the full quality of an immersion program, we ask our villagers and our staff to be in the Language Village moment. We require that all electronic devices be left at home or checked at the Village gate during the customs process. Four-week villagers will receive their phone for a limited amount of time on a day in the middle of their program, then return it to staff for its safe-keeping for the last two weeks.
