C.A.S.IT. Inc. (Centro Attivita’ Scolastiche Italiane), in cooperation with the Office of the Education Director of the Italian Consulate and the Dante Alighieri Society of Cambridge is proud to sponsor its fourth Full Immersion Italian Summer Camp for students ages 4-10.

Dates: August 19, 2018 – August 23, 2019.
Times: 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., with early drop-off and early/late pick-up options (see below)
Location: Dante Alighieri Society

The camp is a great opportunity for students to be exposed early to a foreign language and get them excited about language learning. There are many benefits that learning a foreign language provides, from experiencing new cultures to gaining the skills needed to succeed in today’s world. The camp will be full of fun activities that will prove to be a blast for all children!

The Camp consists of two main modules with breaks for snacks and lunch as follows:

  • First Module- 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.: morning meeting with songs or games. Following, children will branch off into groups that will consist of different themes (depending on a combination of language knowledge level and age) each taught and learned through
    developmentally appropriate hands-on activities. This module will close with a song and/or review activities and say “ciao” to the friends that will leave before lunch. During the module there will be a break for snacks. Please provide your child with a individually labeled snack.
  • Lunch- 12:00 a.m.- 12:30 p.m.: Please pack a lunch for your child and a bottle of water every day, please label both.
  • Second Module- 12:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.: Depending on the day of the week, there will be outdoor and indoor activities including, cooking classes, walks to the library of the neighborhood, music, art, and more!  These activities will be conducted both in Italian and English and camp instructors can provide additional Italian reading and writing support, if requested. The calendar of the daily activities will be made available to participants closer to the starting date.

During the modules there will be a break for snacks. Please provide your child with a snack individually labeled.
