Parents who have sent their children to Los Monitos Language Camps in the past all agree that there are no other camps that compare with them! Los Monitos camps combine educational, inspirational, and international camp content with unique and engaging themes. The learning philosophy at Los Monitos is the same for adults as it is for kids – people learn when they are interested in something, and they get interested when they are engaged and/or having fun while they’re doing it! Most kids are not going to become fluent in a foreign language by attending these camps, but that’s not the objective. The objective is to expose them to languages, cultures, geography, foods, media, and people from all over the world. Most kids lock in on aspects of certain countries and it fuels their motivation to continue learning!
Los Monitos is offering three kinds of camps this Summer – Arts & Adventure, Multimedia, and Cooking Camps. The arts and adventure camps include Los Artistas, a long-time favorite, where campers paint, sing and dance their way through Latin America all while learning Spanish. Their projects will adorn the walls like an art gallery by the end of the week. Los Piratas – A Pirate Camp! is also back, where young piratas will explore the Spanish language, Latin American culture and geography as they virtually travel to the Caribbean, South Atlantic and Pacific Seas in search for tesoro. And of course, the thrilling International Spy Camps return with 3 new international missions. Spy recruits embark on analyzing “Eyes Only” intel on chosen continents while learning local languages, culture, and geography in Europe, Asia, and all around the world! The week is full of top secret briefings from global ops officers, exciting training activities, taste-testings, and a top operative competition!
La Tournage – The French Film Crew returns this year after debuting last year as our first multimedia camp. This exciting camp for 8-12 year olds simulates the world of French filmmaking while exposing campers to the French language. By the end, campers will have proudly contributed to a cinematic masterpiece in front of and behind the camera! Global News Network, for 6-10 year olds, becomes our second multimedia camp. This new global multimedia camp thrusts the campers into the current events around the globe. They learn about language, culture, and geography through their live reporting and production of international newscasts!
Our very popular International Cooking Camps are all back with many new recipes this year! Little chefs gather in the Los Monitos kitchen to create and enjoy delectable dishes from around the world, all while learning the target language(s) of the region(s). Each camp has its own theme – French Cooking, European Cooking, Spanish Cooking, Asian Cooking, and NEW this year, Italian Cooking! Each week a Top Chef is recognized for their over-and-above efforts!
