Summer Camps 2017

 

  

We are excited to announce our Camp Lango 2017! Camp Lango began in 2010 (See all years of camp here) and continues growing in relevance and popularity today. This year we have 2 different and separate sections: Full days of "Spanish Only" at IVC and Half Days of Spanish and French at LangoKids Irvine.  It's a real Spanish or French immersion experience for those interested in making any of these languages their kids’second or third language. With us, campers understand the language, speak it, and ultimately… love it! Students get to spend their summertime having fun, being engaged, and taking pretend trips to different destinations of Latin America and Europe. At Camp Lango each week is a new destination and the best thing is we don't have to fly! Without lost luggage and jet lag, we are able to "visit" these places and learn about their traditions, recreation, and cuisine. Each week ends with a celebration for parents, family, and friends. Extended care in the morning and afternoon is available for FREE.

Grouping: We have 3 levels of fluency at camp a IVC: basic, intermediate and advanced. There will be two basic groups divided by ages 5-7 and 7-9. Ages for the intermediate and advanced group are secondary in importance to fluency, so we do not look at the age, but we do expect students to be able to keep with the level if placed in the higher level groups. If you have a student who you think might be a candidate for an intermediate or advanced class, please call us (714-864-4680) to request an assessment. At LangoKids Irvine we'll be offering only one basic level of Spanish and French for kids ages 5-8.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT SUMMER CAMP

All kids that attend summer camp advance dramatically in their language skills. Of course, the longer they're in the program, the better the results will be. We group students by levels of fluency and by ages. For Spanish, there will be 4 teachers working with four groups of about 10-14 students each.  Parents of kids who haven't had much exposure, are encouraged to purchase weeks early into the program. NO week is a prerequisite for the next, in fact, all topics are different, but for those who have stayed longer, we do revisit topics from other weeks and knowledge builds up. 

 

When you bring a child to us, you are entrusting your child to experienced professionals in the area of language teaching. Additionally, we are moms of fully bilingual and trilingual kids (who are in the program as well), and that sets us apart from other language schools.

 

Summer camp is our favorite time of the year not only because it's so nice out, but also because it's very gratifying to see how much campers accomplish in only 7 weeks. In fact, a camper is able to achieve in 7 weeks, what a student at Lango accomplishes taking one class a week for a year and a half or so.

 

Every week we give our campers a new book with all the activities we learn throughout the week. They receive it on Monday and they take it home on Fridays so parents can review concepts at home. Every day we work on a different project and kids bring those projects home. Ask your camper about the craft; we are sure they'll have a great story to tell!

 

 Safety is first for us. IVC does a fantastic job providing us assistance through their Campus Safety Team. We also make sure all kids are taken care of all at all times. Cristina, the director, and her assistants are on site at all times supervising and helping teachers and campers. At Lango there will be a person assiting teachers and making sure kids are taken care of at all times. 


REFUND POLICY

  • Withdrawals before June 1: Camp fee refunded less 10% Administrative Fee.
  • Withdrawals between June 2-June 21: Camp fee refunded less 25% Administrative Fee
  • On or after June 26: Camp fee is non refundable.

WEEKLY THEMES AND DESTINATIONS 2017

 

 

Camp Lango in Irvine is the place where your child will acquire a language, be safe, grow, and make friends while enjoying the summertime. Our theme of each week goes along with regular camp activities which culminate with a celebration and performance for parents and friends on the last day of the week. Don’t miss out! Join us for at least 2 cosecutive weeks or for the entire summer. The experience and the language acquired will never be forgotten!


 CAMP LANGO-SPANISH 

IVC and LangoKids Irvine

Week 1: June 26- June 30 Let's go to the Zoo/ Vamos al Zoológico

Knock, knock! Who’s there? Goat. Goat who? Goat to the door and find out. Funny, huh? On a more serious note, although it’s best for all animals to roam their natural environment, we are thankful for all types of animal care facilities that take care of animals in their enclosed areas. This allows humans to see them and enjoy them safely.  Zoos provide audiences with the opportunity to learn about many different ecosystems in one same place and to be educated as to what animals need to live. Did you know that zoos also have an important role for scientific research and species conservation?  Do you know what animals need to be saved from extinction? Do you think you can help? Yes, the more you know about them, the more you can help!  This week will be fun as we’ll explore all a zoo has to offer and we’ll talk about our favorite zoo animal and its characteristics. We’ll have an animal parade and a special visitor you can’t miss! Do you want to know? Goat to our door and find out!

Destination of the Week: Honduras

 

Week 2: July 3 - July 7 /Superhero Adventures/ Aventuras de Superhéroes

We all have super heroes we love for their powers and the adventures they experience. We want to make those adventures our own, or to be like them one day. Why not? With imagination, passion, and work, you can be whoever you want to be and change the world one adventure at a time. Look around…do you see less apparent heroes in your community? Many times, although they are heroes, they work undercover. You may not know it but they are there. Those are real flesh and blood heroes we can learn a lot from. Do you think they are making the world a better place? Do you want to be one when you grow up? Our LangoKids’ friends Luc and Lucia have a fictional and a real hero they admire, but you need to be at camp to find out who those are. This week, we have a special visit from some real heroes you can see, touch, and talk with. You can also ask them anything you want! This entire week we’ll go on an exciting voyage from the imaginary to the real world, and we promise it will be lots of fun!

Destination of the Week: Mexico

 

Week 3: July 10 - July 14 A Hawaiian Experience/ Una Experiencia Hawaiana

Who said we can’t bring some Spanish (or a lot, actually) onto the Hawaiian paradise? In fact, it has happened before. Hawaii is one of the few islands that has embraced immigration from almost any nation in the world. Did you know that Puerto Rico was devastated by two hurricanes in 1899? The Puerto Rican sugar industry was destroyed and laborers were brought to Hawaii to continue supplying the world with delicious Hawaiian azúcar (Thank Goodness!). Even now, the presence and influence of Hispanics on Hawaiian soil is very noticeable. Because keeping the island intact is our duty, this week we’ll talk about ways to preserve its beauty by caring for it, and learning about its rich fauna and flora. Our campers this week will be presented with a “survivor challenge”, which is going to put them to the test! Accomplishing the missions, solving the mysteries, and using Spanish are among the ways to compete and get special rewards at the end of the week. So, campers, sharpen your survival skills, and get ready for this amazing natural experience!

Destination of the Week: Hawaii

 

Week 4: July 17- July 21 Let's Connect! / Conectémonos!

This week we thought it was pertinent to rescue highly important things that aren’t taught or talked about much in schools. While playing on the playground, Luc fell and he seems hurt. What would you do if you were there? What value or set of values would you apply if you decide do to something? Is it honesty? Justice? Determination? Consideration? Love? How would you express those feelings in Spanish? Luckily for all of us, saying those words in Spanish is easy as those are called cognates. Cognates are words that are very close in meaning, spelling and pronunciation, so in Spanish you’d say honestidad, justicia, determinación, and consideración. Love isn’t so much a cognate, but it’s a small word (amor) with a huge meaning. Kids will be presented with situations from fables, short stories and real life events in which they will have to think of ways to apply those values and help themselves and others. The lesson will be that even if we all look like separate little islands, we can always find something in common and build an imaginary bridge to reach somebody else and come closer to each other.  Our teachers and the stories they have in store for you are going to help your kids build character and be better citizens of this world! Join us!

Destination of the Week: Uruguay 

 

Week 5: July 24 - July 28  Dance with Me! / Baila Conmigo!  

This is a week specifically designed to connect with our bodies, with nature, and with each other at Camp Lango. We’ll engage in friendly competition, but not before taking an oath of mutual respect and tolerance… in Spanish of course. Our campers will learn about the most famous dance competitions, identify dance styles and types, dance equipment and apparel, famous dancers and more. Diverse activities ensure that each day at camp will be fun, entertaining, and unique for all as we embark on an imaginary trip to the homeland of Salsa and Cha-cha-cha: Cuba. Cuba is a country with indefinable magic and we can’t wait to learn more about it. Join us!

Week 6 July 31 - Aug. 4 TheWorld's Most Extreme Animals/Los Animales Más  Extremos

We know we are not going to save endangered species or stop air pollution and contamination in one week with our campers. What we can do is to promote love and awareness for our species and the earth we live in and we are sure we can do that in one week. Do you know what is the biggest of all animals? If you said the whale, you are right. How about the noisiest? We can’t tell you quite yet; what we can tell you (perhaps you guessed it by now), is we’ll be talking about superlatives and comparatives in Spanish. Don't know what those are? Hurry to camp this week, we’ll teach you. This week our campers will learn about rare animal species in Colombia, participate in a variety of activities including classroom learning games, arts, crafts, and short field trips on campus...all in the target language. We’ll participate in fun trivia contests about animals and their habitats, and keep journals of what we discover outside as we connect with nature and make all sorts of nature inspired crafts. How fun!

Destination of the Week:  Colombia 

 

 

Week 7: Aug. 7 - Aug. 11 Carnival of Nations/ Carnaval de las Naciones del Mundo

We want to make this week a real occasion to vibrantly embrace and celebrate our nation’s vast and undeniable cultural diversity. This week our campers will learn about clothing and seasons, traditions, music, dances, and culture from different countries in the world, even those where Spanish is not spoken. Our geography knowledge will expand and our understanding for other cultures will improve! This week we end our seven-week summer camp with games, a carnival that is full of color, costumes, great prizes, and food made by us and our campers. Yum, yum, we’re getting hungry, can summer camp start now?

Week 3: July 10 - July 14 A Hawaiian Experience/ Les Aventures a Hawaii

Aloha! Did you know that Hawaii has a special place for French people? Today a friendly relationship between Hawai'i and France exists as Honolulu is a sister city with Bruyeres, France. In 1944, a Combat team made up mainly of second-generation Japanese-Americans from Hawai'i—suffered many casualities while freeing Bruyeres and the nearby village of Biffontaine. France will always be in debt with Hawaii. Great history fact! So, Who said we can’t bring some French (or a lot, actually) onto the Hawaiian paradise? Alos, Because keeping the island intact is our duty, this week we’ll talk about ways to preserve its beauty by caring for it, and learning about its rich fauna and flora.
