Zing! Bam! Pow! During this session, campers will use their creativity and imagination as they explore cartoons and superheroes from around the world. Who is the most popular superhero in Mexico? How do you draw Japanese anime?  Are there similar themes and qualities that they share? Through hands-on crafts, storytelling, theater and more, campers will love learning about popular characters while gaining language skills. Kids even get to create their own superhero alter-ego!

Calling all curious kids! Let’s learn how to make and build things! In this session, campers will gain language skills while working together to create all sorts of inventions and structures.  Whether they be solar oven delicacies, high-flying kites, or magnificent forts, campers  explore how things around them work through hands-on activities. Campers of all ages will enjoy making their own creations while learning language.
