ISLS Teen Spanish and Adventure Camps Playa Tamarindo Costa Rica

ISLS is proud to announce our special Winter Break Children’s Spanish & Adventure Camp in Playa Tamarindo, Costa Rica. The camp is for children 5 to 12 years of age, who are traveling to Costa Rica with their parents over the winter holidays and are looking for a fun and adventurous learning vacation. Family members under 5 years of age can take advantage of our Spanish Daycare. For children over 13yrs of age they can join our Adult Spanish Classes or join our Surf Program. Parents can also join the adult program and surf program or enjoy all that Tamarindo has to offer during the hours of the Children’s Camp. For more information about our Adult Spanish Programs, please feel free to contact us directly. You can also check out our adult web site at: www.isls.com.

Teen Spanish Spanish and Adventure Camps Costa RicaThe camp will take place for two weeks from Monday, December 22nd through Friday, January 2nd. For the weekend in between we have set up an amazing, family friendly, trip to Arenal Volcano and hot springs. Families can choose to participate in the camp for one or both weeks and the Arenal Tour is optional. Please enquire with an ISLS representative.

Below is the itinerary for both weeks of the Winter Children’s Camp. All activities are included and scheduled for the days and times listed below, but are subject to change due to weather conditions or other circumstances beyond our control. Each week combines age appropriate Spanish lessons with lunch, cultural activities, exchange with local children, adventure tours, holiday celebrations and surf lessons.

Camp Orientation takes place the Sunday before each week at 4pm. It is important that children and adults attend this function. Those taking classes will be given Spanish placement evaluations by our Spanish teachers. The adults will meet with the camp director who will go over the final list of weekly activities, time schedules and expectations. Afterward, she will be available to answer additional questions. Also, each Monday at 5pm, there is a meet and greet for all families to come together, eat dinner and get to know each other.

The weekly price of the Children’s Camp is $500/student.

There is an 8 student minimum for each week and a maximum of 20. Space is available on a first come first serve basis.

We are very excited about providing our Children’s Spanish Camp during the winter break to celebrate the end of year holidays. It is the beginning of the dry season in Costa Rica and the most celebrated time to visit Costa Rica. Come join us!
