What we offer?
Neurosciences have proved that you can increase the brain health and functionality through certain activities. Our goal is to provide campers with multiple activities that will boost their brain potential. These activities are Spanish Language, puzzles and word games, Mind games, Art, Exercise. All activities are in Spanish.
Why languages? Language activities will challenge the campers’ ability to recognize, remember and understand words. They also exercise fluency, grammatical skills, and vocabulary in Spanish. By practicing Spanish language and word games daily, they will expand their knowledge of new words and much more easily retrieve words that are familiar.
Why Smart Games? Learning smart games through board games at an early stage in life helps students to concentrate and pay attention in class. Knowing how to play stimulates student’s self-confidence, which is an essential requirement for effective learning. Reasoning skill is increased, as well as the ability to solve abstract problems and anticipating conflictive situations, developing their hypothetical thinking to a maximum.
Why art? Art is a way to express yourself. The goal is to teach how to use the arts to creatively express feelings through colors, lines, drawings, or sculptures.
Why exercise? Body & mind are connected when exercising. Even light to moderate exercise activates neurons that coordinate muscle contractions, vision, balance, organ function and all the complex interactions of bodily systems.
Espanglish Camp brings the learning out of the class. Our summer program immerses children in art, smart games and sports activities while they practice Spanish.
As experienced educators, we know that children learn more if they are engaged in games and creative activities that just don’t look as a regular class curriculum.
