We are proud to partner with Thinking Mind, an award-winning provider of summer camps, well-known for their innovative experiential language-learning. Visiting kids learn conversational Spanish in fun, communicative ways through a variety of group activities: science, arts and crafts, sports and games.
On weekday mornings at 8:30 am, visiting kids will be picked up by minivans outside the apartment complex. They will be whisked up into the hills overlooking Medellín to the camp’s beautiful, expansive, lushly-wooded campus. There, visiting kids will meet in small groups with local peers, guided by a team of skilled bilingual activity leaders. One is an expert in language development and the other is responsible for ensuring that campers are connecting, feeling good and enjoying their time. The result is language-learning, cross-cultural skill development and good, healthy fun.
These small group interactions inevitably foster friendships. At lunchtime in the camp cantina, the new friends mix and mingle. During the afternoon, groups combine for collaborative team-building, sports activities, and social games.
On most days, kids return to the apartment complex at 4:00pm. On Fun Fridays, the camp continues till 8:00pm with exciting evening activities, dinner and a festive bonfire.
