SPANISH CAMPS FOR ALL LEVELS:

No previous Spanish language knowledge needed! Advanced campers stretch their language skills through leadership opportunities while beginning campers benefit from PELP's unique approach of supported communication. All campers feel a boost in confidence and inspiration to continue learning beyond their time at camp.

PELP makes learning Spanish FUN! Parents are invited on the last day to see a special performance highlighting what their child has learned.

Our Video Editor:  Raquel Aurelia Amezcua has been involved with PELP since she was three! First as a student in our preschool classes, then as a camper, and later as a volunteer counselor. If she didn’t have school and other obligations – she could almost teach our classes! (She certainly knows all the songs!) She put her Spanish camp experience to good use last year at Camp Shazaam as a counselor and dance instructor and is looking forward to working there again this summer!

Raquel's current role at PELP is to create promotional videos for our Spanish programs. She also made a promo video for Camp Shazaam! If you’re in need of any video editing, you may reach her at raquel.video.321@gmail.com.

"J. is LOVING class! It has surprised me how age appropriate this class is. It has already been so great for her. We are 3 classes in and she is already saying 3-4 Spanish words at home.Not only is she learning Spanish, but also really great social skills."                                                   ~ Sara, mom to Jabana (18mos)
