Immersion Island Begins Eighth Summer!

Over seven years ago we had the dream and vision of having a foreign language experience that was local, fun and engaging!  Immersion Island now is beginning its eighth year of language immersion camps in Chapel Hill.  Hundreds of kids from as far away as the Caribbean, Chicago and Arizona have joined us for both day and overnight Spanish immersion camps.  We have been using New Hope Camp’s beautiful 60-acre retreat site which truly makes the experience  all the fun of a summer camp while immersed in a foreign language.  It is really like we are in “Tia Juana’s” house.  One camp session never has more than 30 staff and participants so we really become a tight-knit group of amigos / amis  by the end of the stay on the Island!  Last year added French camp.   Plan to join us for a week or more to practice that last key piece to language learning – conversation-  while also just having a ton of fun and learning a lot about other cultures! (updated 3/2018)
