Children's Spanish & Adventure Camp
Take a learning vacation with your family in beautiful and safe Costa Rica. Each year our Children’s Spanish Camp welcomes kids ages 2 to 13 from all over the world. They study Spanish in a fun and interactive environment, meet local children, play sports, do crafts and adventure activities.
The camp takes place in Playa Tamarindo on the northern Pacific coast in the dry forest. Boasting a long white sand beach, this sunny tropical paradise is perfect for swimming or surfing and has tons of activities and tours for all ages.
We have two camp sessions each year, Winter and Summer.
For the 2017/2018 Winter Children's Camp it takes place over a 2 week period, December 25th through January 5th. You can choose to do one week or both weeks. The main difference between the itinerary for the Winter and Summer camps is that we do not offer a Pre-K
or Teen Camp option. We provide sitter services for families traveling with children under 5 years and teenagers can join our Adult Spanish Program with surf. Space is extremely limited, so please contact us right away if you are interested in this camp.
The Winter Camp is for 5 to 12 year olds and the per/price $500/child. For those family members 13 and over we have our Adult Spanish Program. Group Spanish Program is $365/week if you want to add the Surf Program, that is an additional $205/week.
For the 2018 Summer Children’s Camp will take place over an 8 week period. The first start date will be June 18 and the last day of camp will be Friday, August 10. Children can enroll in the camp from one to eight weeks. We limit the total number of students each week, so space is very limited. Each year we sell the camp out completely, so don't wait!
The care and supervision of your children is very important to us. For this reason we split the age groups up into four groups: 2 to 4, 5 to 7, 8 to 10 and 11 to 13. This allows us to give age specific and developmentally appropriate activities, Spanish lessons and supervision to all of our campers.
Children 5 to 13 attend the camp for the same 6 hour period, 8am to 2pm. Many of the camp activities will be done together, such as snack break, lunch and graduation. However, other activities that are age specific such as Spanish instruction, will be done separately and age appropriately. For the younger children age 2 to 4, we have a Spanish Daycare Option where they can be with us 2, 4 or 6 hours/day.
The price of the camp depends upon the age of the child.
For the Spanish Daycare Option the weekly prices are as follows: 2 hours/day - $200, 4 hours/day - $290 and six hours/day - $375. Lunch is only included for daycare students who are with us six hours/day.
The weekly price for our Elementary School Group (5 to 10) is: $550/week. For our Middle School Group (11 to 13) the price is: $650/week. The Middle School Group receives 6 additional hours of Spanish classes each week.
We also offer Private Lessons, in the afternoons after camp ends, for those who would like extra Spanish lessons for their children. We have one-on-one or one-on-two and the prices are $15/hour for one student or $20/hour for two. Space is limited and students must sign up for 5 hours/week minimum.
For the Elementary and Middle School Groups, we offer a couple of discounts: Sibling Discount, $25/week/child and Long Term Discount, $25/week/child for those who sign up for three or more weeks. There is no discounts offered for the Daycare Pre-K Option.
Each summer we create a private lodging compound for our families. We team up with the Mango Condos to rent all of their 2 bedroom condos. By doing this we create a family friendly and safe environment. Only families who are a part of the Children’s Camp can stay at this high end condo complex near the beach. Each unit has a full kitchen, a/c, cable t.v., private wireless internet and all face onto the beautiful interior pool and tropical garden.
The pricing for the condos at the Mango are $155/night. If you are interested in this lodging option, please contact us right away, as space is already very limited.
