An International Summer Vacation

Learning another language unlocks a world of opportunities. Yet, speaking this language can be intimidating. At World Camp, we have cracked the code of language learning: 

  1. Have fun.
  2. Don't be afraid to make mistakes.
  3. Keep at it!

To learn more about immersion at World Camp, watch the video below and discover how a mother's questions are answered for her beginner-level children.

World Camp is not an academic camp, but a fun summer vacation. With programs offered in Arabic, French, German, Italian and Mandarin, students are fully immersed in an international summer experience without leaving the Chicagoland area. Our activities cover vocabulary, while also providing students with the space to practice speaking and writing the language no matter what level.
