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.

Two-Week

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.

Four-Week

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!

High School Credit

Unplugged

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.
