Spanish Summer Day Camp

The mission of the Fuente Nueva Charter School Spanish Summer Day Camp is to provide a safe and nurturing environment where children explore our world through engaging activities that incorporate language, culture, arts, science and games. The day camp is designed to serve FNCS students and *elementary school age children from the greater community. We offer a dynamic program in which culture and language is celebrated and taught. Students of all levels are encouraged to attend.

Program Information

General Information

We offer a culturally enriching experience while incorporating the Spanish language throughout our daily activities. Our daily schedule will have a mix of games, stories, songs, projects and fun clubs that incorporate opportunities to learn the Spanish language. The last three weeks of our summer camp will be completely in Spanish, providing an immersion experience in which all children can thrive.

Program Days/Hours

Fuente Nueva Summer Camp runs Monday-Friday beginning Monday, July 22nd and ends on Friday, August 16th. Full day camp hours are 9am-4pm. Half day camp hours are 9am-12:30pm or 12:30pm-4pm. Extended complimentary care is offered to accommodate student drop off at 7:30am and pick up until 5:30pm. You will be asked to sign up for this on the first day of camp.

Snack

A nutritious snack will be served twice a day during the extended complimentary care. Selections will include fresh, local ingredients that are organic and pesticide free when able. Students share in the preparation of the snack throughout the week. This is an excellent opportunity for language development and learning new skills. The cost of the snack is incorporated into the cost of the day camp.

Fieldtrips

In general fieldtrips will be paid for by the cost of the camp. On rare occasion, fees will be requested for the cost of transportation, admission or supplies. This fee request is clearly stated on the field trip permission form.
