Summer Immersion Camps for Kids
Camp Lango is a terrific way for kids ages 4-11 (going into kindergarten - sixth grade) to learn new languages while enjoying summertime fun. Lango campers spend each week immersed in an exciting part of the French, Chinese or Latin American world. Lango's dynamic, experienced teachers serve as counselors, and are supported by a team of native-speaking and fluent assistant counselors. Campers spend each day moving from one activity to the next, including special "No English!" times, designed to provide an immersion experience while still allowing for a ton of fun. A week or more of Camp Lango is guaranteed to boost your child's new language ability!
