Camp Lango is a terrific way for kids ages 4-11 (going into kindergarten - sixth grade) to learn Spanish while enjoying summertime fun. Lango campers spend each week immersed in an exciting part of the 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!
Camp Lango dates and pricing vary by location. Find a camp in your area!

I just want to let you know that my daughter, Casey, already loves Spanish. "Mommy, Spanish is cool!" is the exact quote I got this afternoon. Many thanks for working so hard to bring this great program to EARTHS!
We have all learned many Spanish words and phrases. My kids both have absorbed the language like little fish. They usually remember words and phrases that I do not and they are always asking me how to say certain things in Spanish (which either have to look up or ask Kelli). I highly recommend Kelli and the Lango class!
Just had to tell you that my daughter *loves* the Lango CD. Each morning this week since Spanish class, she runs into the living room and jumps up and down yelling, "dance, dance!"
