I love the 100% immersion approach. It’s very effective–even I’m compelled to talk to the teachers in my broken Spanish! I’ve tried other camps where English was used part of the time, and I don’t see my kids compelled to use Spanish when they know they can get away with English. But at Kallpachay, even my younger child who had struggled with speaking Spanish responded to the teacher in Spanish, and that’s awesome!

My son is attending summer camp and we love it! The staff is great, and their activities are fun and creative! My son doesn’t really get into art projects at school but he’s made something every day and seems to enjoy it. The counselors and director are very receptive. I plan on registering him again next summer!

– Nancy

l was a little scared at first to register my daughter for summer camp, but she loved it and is speaking so much Spanish now; I’m so impressed! She looked forward to the Thursday parties and to the teachers and friends she made there. I recommend it to all my friends now, so hopefully many of them will join us next year!
