Welcome to El Pueblo!

In the summer of 2018, kids and teens entering grades 5-10 are invited to join us for a week-long Spanish language adventure in a fun overnight-camp setting.

We’ll challenge, support, and inspire one another as we grow in our Spanish-speaking abilities and explore the language and cultures of the Spanish-speaking world.

Everyone can learn Spanish at Spanish camp.

Our Language South team meets the needs of every learner in our camp community. We challenge and support campers of all proficiency levels, from the very first time they say hola to the day they take the AP Spanish exam.

On a typical day in El Pueblo, we…
  • Eat delicious food in the comedor (dining hall).
  • Enjoy the company of counselors and fellow campers.
  • Sing, scream, and chant camp songs and cheers.
  • Participate in a variety of fun language activities, arts & crafts, sports and more!
  • Relax, write a letter, or read during a siesta (rest period) after lunch each day.
  • Spend some free time hanging out with our new friends.
  • Enjoy a theatrical production performed with our counselors.
  • Participate in an exciting evening program with the whole camp.
  • Have an evening chat with our casa (cabin) to reflect on our day.
  • Get a good night’s sleep, so we are ready for another full day at El Pueblo!
