Summer Spanish Immersion Camps for Kids in Manhattan Beach

Looking for a fun way to have your kids practice Spanish over the summer? Spanish in Action offers eight different Monday through Friday 9 am-12 pm sessions of Spanish Immersion Summer Camp where your child can learn Spanish while having a blast!

Sessions are modeled after the highly academic curriculum of the Year-Round Program with a special emphasis on learning Spanish through extended game playing, singing songs, dancing, arts and crafts, and role-playing with real-world scenarios. There are prizes and take-home goodies every day and kids will have the chance to immerse themselves in the Spanish culture with food tasting and pretend stores so that kids can learn Spanish with real life scenarios. (If your child has a food allergy, sessions will be tailored to your child’s needs.)

The Summer Immersion Camp is also a great way for your child to try-out our Spanish in Action program if you are considering signing him/her up for a Year-Round class.

My daughter has been going to Spanish in action for years.  She has such a great time in “class” playing games and having fun – all in Spanish!  She has learned so much and has such a great head start knowing a second language at such a young age!
