Join us for a special Spanish Immersion Summer Camp in beautiful Costa Rica! Family Go Global has partnered with La Paz Community School, an award winning school on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, to offer a two week bilingual (Spanish/English) summer camp from July 15th – 19th and July 22-26th, 2019. Students may join us for either one or two weeks of camp* depending on your families travel schedule.
Camp is designed for children ages 3 to 13 years of age and will encourage development of Spanish language skills in a fun and hands on way. Campers include a combination of international students and local Costa Rican students. Groups are formed by age and language proficiency and will offer age appropriate play and project based activities that include nature/environmental studies, sports, arts, games and more. All lessons are underscored by La Paz’s world changing Peace Practices.
Pura Vida Peace Camp is a day camp offering instruction from 9AM-3PM–all campers must be accompanied by an adult on their journey to Costa Rica, but camp is for children only. Adult Spanish lessons can be arranged through a local language institute for those that are interested. In the afternoons and on weekends families will be invited to participate in optional group visits to other local sights like the surrounding beaches and volcanos as well as adventure activities like surf lessons and zip lining (additional cost).
Pura Vida Peace Camp includes:
*PLEASE NOTE: For those campers attending one week of camp only, you must attend the first week, July 15-19th. Those attending Week 2 must have been in attendance during Week 1 of the program. (Rare exceptions will be made on a case by case basis for students presently in dual-language programs).
This summer learning experience offers families the utmost flexibility–rent a car and book your own lodging in the area and simply drop your kids off for camp every day, or book a home or hotel along our bus route for easy daily pick up and drop off of your campers. We can recommend Bed & Breakfast options, and 3, 4, and 5 star hotel accommodations in the area.
