French, Spanish and English Language Immersion Camp with International and Multicultural Activities for Kids
Les Explorers are pleased to present “Languages of the Stage”, a six-week program (three 2-week sessions). Taught in three languages– French, Spanish and English – children will play on stage, backstage and outside to discover the world of acting and acrobatics. Each day, campers will spend half the time in English and half in either French or Spanish.
Younger children will split their day exploring creative movement and balance with Austin International School faculty who are native speakers in either Spanish or French and bilingual in English, and outside teaching professionals. This camp lets children delve into other languages and cultures, and learn songs and stories from other countries. Children will practice circus games in Spanish, build their decor in French, and perform in English. Or is it the other way around?!
A summer full of fun, friendship, and discovery is in store.
Older children will learn in English with local acting professionals from Austin Children’s Theater, and, on alternating afternoons, with the teaching team of Austin International School. There are three sessions to discover, practice, and master a full theater production, based on each two-week session’s fun and creative theme. Campers will participate in sports and crafts activities in a foreign language that are related to their upcoming performance. Spanish and French will be introduced into the play thanks to the close collaboration between ACT and AIS. Les Explorers’ Languages of the Stage is a unique camp experience that teaches your child how to feel good on stage, improve his or her vocabulary and reading, and master a few sentences in a foreign language.
For new academic students, Les Explorers is a fun way to prepare the children for the coming school year, by introducing AIS curriculum guidelines and exposing the child to their new environment. The program runs for six weeks of playful language immersion, with a performance on the second Thursday afternoon and one field trip on the last Friday of each session.
The camp runs from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with extended hours starting at 7:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Parents of 3-5 years old may register their children for a full day week or for a half day week (mornings).
