Summer Camp 2021: Costa Rica

Camps will be held in early June and early August with the possibility of a July camp. Join our list below so you don’t miss out on annoucments and special discounts. Dates coming soon!

It’s not just any camp…it’s the best immersive Spanish camp! Kids will have a blast learning and improving their Spanish skills through outdoor games, storytime, culture-focused activities, cooking, music, dance, and art.

Campers will be immersed in the culture of Costa Rica through a range of activities: from geography to culture, science experiments to cooking classes, and storytime to traditional outdoor games. Our guest maestras (teachers) offer fun supplementary classes like music, meditation, and yoga classes. More advanced students can expect activities like reading, writing, and conversational games in Spanish.

Our goal is to create a memorable experience that kids can take with them in future endeavors. We aspire to provide a diverse and welcoming camp where students can practice their Spanish through a variety of activities while also being exposed to different cultures and ways of living.

My 2 sons (ages 5 and 8) did the Mariposa 2 week summer camp for the first time this year. They had both been exposed to Spanish but had no formal training (like couldn't say anything except "hola" and "muy bien"). They both had a lot of anxiety about going; they were worried it would be boring and school-like. I had the same fear, but I was OK with that if it helped them learn Spanish. Happily, the camp turned out to be totally fun and the boys loved it. AND, every day when I picked them up they were chatting happily with me using their new Spanish words and singing their new songs. I was blown away by how much Spanish was packed into those 2 weeks. The boys learned SO much, and they were not stressed about it at all. They enjoyed all the activities and didn't realize how much they were absorbing. I wish this camp went all summer! It was totally worth it and I can't wait for our next session with Mariposas!
