The Teen Day Camp Prices are for teenagers who are traveling with their parents and will only be participating in the camps from 8am to 5pm, Monday through Friday. They will receive the 4 hours of Spanish classes each day, lunch and all afternoon and evening activities that are including in the camp. They will not receive lodging, breakfast, dinner, weekend tours, 24 hour supervision or airport pick up and drop off services. Evening activities from 5pm to 9pm, including dinner can be added for an additional cost of $100/wk. Day campers can join the weekend tours for an additional fee of $350.
The Children’s Camp is split into three separate groups by age of the student: Pre – K is 4 and under, Elementary is 5 to 10 and Middle School is 11 to 13. For the Pre-K group we have the option of doing 2, 4 or 6 hours of Spanish Daycare. This means that the children are in a supervised Spanish learning environment, playing games, singing songs and being spoken to only in Spanish. However it is important to understand that it is not a structured class. A daily snack break is included, but only the 6 hour students will also receive lunch each day.
The Elementary School Group will be split into two age groups for the Spanish classes; 5 to 7 and 8 to 10. This is to provide age and developmentally appropriate Spanish lessons and curriculum. Students in these groups will be given evaluations and further separated by level of Spanish ability.
For the Middle School Group, students will attend 16 hours of structured Spanish classes. They will be in class 4 hours/day on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The other days they will have 2 hours of class and participate in the tours and cultural activities with the rest of the camp.
Adults, those students 18 and older can participate in our Group Spanish Lessons, four hours/day, or they can choose to do private lessons. We offer private lessons at $22/hour and you must sign up for a minimum of 5 hours/week. All private lessons are in the afternoon starting at 1pm.
For the Teen Camps students will need very minimal spending money as all essentials are covered. There is a $29/person airport exit tax that is not included in any camp price. This should be factored into the spending money for each student.
To sign up for one of our 2016 Youth Summer Spanish Camps, we need to receive a completed Registration form and a deposit of half the program amount. Reservation will not be made until the deposit has been received. The deposit can be paid by personal check, credit card, cashier’s check, PayPal or wire transfer. The camps fill up completely. The balance of payment must be received no later than eight weeks prior to the start of the session chosen.
The airline ticket to Costa Rica is not included in any camp price. The only exception to this is Teen Long Term Discount. ISLS is willing and able to help make airline arrangements for any student or family member traveling to Costa Rica, but the cost of the ticket is paid by the parent at the time of the booking. ISLS will look for the best priced ticket that goes to the correct airport in Costa Rica and also meets the necessary start and finish dates of the particular camp or camps. Most airlines require that students 14 years of age and younger, who are traveling by themselves participate in the unaccompanied minor program. This is an additional service and the charge can be between $75 and $125 each way. This price is also not a part of any camp price, including the Free Airline Ticket Discount and is paid by the parent. Students 15 years and older are generally not considered minors and thus, the unaccompanied minor program is not mandatory, but may be elected.
If ISLS is not purchasing the airline ticket, then the parent must correspond with ISLS to make sure that the arrival and departure dates and times meet the particular student’s needs. Parents must send a copy of the ticket and itinerary to ISLS along with the unaccompanied minor registration form and invoice if necessary. We will need this in order to pick up the students when he or she arrives.
