The director and founder, Jennifer de Lima was a full-time Spanish teacher in Chapel Hill schools for over eleven years.  She studied,  lived and worked in Mexico for many years,  has traveled to many Latin American countries and is married to a Brazilian so she also speaks Portuguese!  She enjoys sharing her love and enthusiasm for Spanish and all culture Latino!  She saw the need for language immersion camps in the Chapel Hill area, even the whole South East!  So, what began as a smattering of enthusiasm and ideas has sprung up as Immersion Island! Read about the The Spanish Camps Staff for the last few summers. They  included enthusiastic, native and native-ability Spanish speakers from local colleges and communities who also love to share their enthusiasm of  life and language. We look forward to meeting you at Immersion Island!  JOIN US NOW!
