    Similar to a Summer Camp, but with many more perks, the program engages children in a range of activities, all

    conducted in Italian, and approaches learning through play. We incorporates games, songs, arts and crafts, drama,

    readings, and numerous others, all of which are aimed at strengthening and increasing knowledge of the language. And

    parents, the best part is that adults can join their children for the program and take part in any of the activities, or none,

    depending on preference, or join one of the various optional tours with other adults for an additional fee.

    Language classes are also available and optional, and are offered to groups of 8-10 adults. Since there will be diverse

    proficiency levels, our goal is to send everyone home with at least basic Italian survival phrases and vocabulary.

    Language classes, in groups of 8-10, are also available for older siblings (middle or high school) traveling with the

    families.
