This special program travels 2-3 times a week to exciting Bay Area destinations aimed at helping students explore the weekly theme and Spanish vocabulary that goes along with it in a hands-on way. Weekly themes include the universe, animals, plants, art, culture, joy and more!

In addition to tons of field trips, activities include lots of time in a forest playground on an acre of oak forest in the Sobrante Hills and a variety of arts/play stations, games, songs, art projects, nature walks, journaling activities, stories, music, cultural games, play-acting, puppet shows, projects, ebook creation, etc.  Like in Montessori classrooms, children can choose what they want to spend their time on.  It is appropriate for children of all ages 3.5+.*  Older campers (> 8yrs. old) can be Jr. Camp Counselors or Camp Counselors and earn a Certificate of Completion, community service hours, and a letter of recommendation for their resumes and school applications!

* all children must be ready to follow safety rules and stay with the group while out on field trips.  If you feel your child is not ready, even if they are 3.5 years old, this program may not be right for your child this year.
