El Pueblo Spanish Camp offers a transformative and inspiring camp experience to young people in grades K through 10. If a camper arrives unsure about their potential to learn Spanish, they leave knowing they can really learn a new language. If they arrive moderately interested Spanish, they’ll find inspiration to fall in love with language learning. And if they already love Spanish upon arrival, they’ll connect with others that share their love for Spanish, and leave camp with a renewed passion and commitment to explore the Spanish-speaking world. El Pueblo’s counselor team is committed not only to language development, but also to the personal development of each camper. They are passionate about being lifelong learners and showing love to those both in our camp and beyond. Join the El Pueblo community this summer for an unforgettable experience!
