Camp Lango is a language immersion summer day camp where kids will have a blast while they learn a new language or practice their second or third language. For five hours every day your child will be playing, singing, cooking, working on art projects and theater, listening to stories, going on imaginary trips, dancing, listening, learning while having lots of fun ALL IN THE TARGET LANGUAGE!

Kids will be grouped by age and knowledge of the language. Each week ends with a celebration for parents, family and friends!

Special classes for incoming Kinders entering dual immersion programs, and for students in Dual Immersion Spanish, French, Italian and German. (See page for Immersion students)

Campers participate in daily immersion language classes by doing fun group projects and activities, to become more familiar with the language and increase their language acquisition skills. This develops understanding of the cultural aspects of the language, making learning an exciting experience.

Teachers design  their curriculum based on a country or region where the target language is spoken.
