El Campo del Bosque
8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
From the moment your passport is stamped entrada (entrance) by the officials at inmigración (immigration), you will find yourself immersed in an exciting world where you will experience Hispanic culture and speak the Spanish language.
The goal of El Campo del Bosque is to help learners make basic exchanges in spanish and develop an appreciation for the diverse Hispanic cultures. Children with any range of Spanish proficiency are encouraged to attend and immerse themselves into the non-intimidating yet challenging “Spanish only” environment. Native and non-native speaking AACPS teachers instruct small groups with the help of counselors who are current high school Spanish students. During the 5 days, campers will experience the structure and sound of the language through the use of engaging songs, crafts, outdoor games, as well as exciting cultural and environmental activities. Children are grouped primarily by their grade levels. Campers also participate in swimming, canoeing, seining, crabbing, which are supervised by certified, English-speaking instructors at all times. This year will include a field trip on Tuesday, and archery will be offered for campers entering 4th or 5th grade in the fall!
At this time, no transportation will be provided for this camp. Parents are expected to drop off their children promptly at 8:15 and pick up their children promptly at 3:30.
