It might seem a bit early to think of summer just yet. But hey, we are already at the end of February and I remember 2014 just having started!!
For everyone planning for summer 2014, and especially looking into summer activities for their children, here is a great camp for kids. Organized by The German American School Association of SoCal this year’s camp will be at the Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center in Orange. Having taken place in Big Bear last year, this camp has become very popular since its inception three years ago. For 6 days and 5 nights the children will be immersed in a complete German language environment. They will visit a geode, gold and coal mine under the guidance of a geologist; can experience special activities such as zip lining and archery, or just swim and slide down a 136 ft. water slide!
Activities such as crafting, baking, fishing and nature hikes will all be conducted in German. So if you don’t plan on going to visit family in Germany, Austria or Switzerland this year, have your children participate in a German Immersion Camp instead, and let them make German friends over cosy campfires right here in California.
The GASA German Immersion Outdoor Science Camp is for ages 7-16 and will take place at the Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center in Orange, CA, from June 29-July4, 2014.
Cost for the Camp is $575.00. Sign up by March 15, to receive an early bird discount!
To sign up or find out more about it please call the GASA office at (562) 693-0223 or email at office@GASAschool.org
