Activities – We have new activities and projects for returning campers! -
Spanish Workshop: The heartbeat of YPW Spanish Day Camp. Fun, play based Spanish Language classes to learn new Spanish vocabulary & Phrases. Campers learn Spanish through storytelling, games, songs, and activities related to their own experiences. The daily Spanish workshops are designed to gradually enable students to attain proficiency in speaking, listening, reading and writing. Young people will be fully exposed to the Spanish language and benefit from learning in this “Spanish-only” environment. Those new vocabularies / phrases are reinforced throughout the day’s activities.
Cultural Station: We want your campers to not only be bilingual but also bicultural! To us culture is a major and inseparable Component of “knowing” a language. Campers learn about food, music, arts, and social habits of various Latin American countries.
Field Trips: We have selected fun, educational and enriching field trips to complement our Summer Spanish curriculum and activities. We may visit places such as:
Mexican Restaurant, Mexican Bakery, Latin Supermarket, Latin TV News Station, Austin Zoo, Texas Capitol, Mexic-Arte Museum, Austin Science & Nature Center, Mexican-American Cultural Center
Team Activities & Games: Jump! Run! Bounce! Splash! YPW Spanish Immersion Day Camp activities are much more than an amusement park of fun and adventure. We play with purpose! No two years are the same for our campers. Each year campers experience age-relevant elements of teamwork, cooperation and communication. From Tug-o-War , Red Light Green Light, Duck Duck Goose to navigating your way through the Obstacle Course for our oldest campers, your child is sure to walk away with new found knowledge and growth at the same he / she is learning or practicing Spanish with us!
Cooking: Our YPW Spanish Immersion Campers participate in our “YPW Creative Kitchen”. Campers whip up age-appropriate recipes with the instructors’ help while learning / practicing Spanish vocabulary and phrases along the way (dishes may include Rainbow Rice and Pattern Parfaits). Some sessions take their inspiration from popular books like Stone Soup. At the end of workshop everyone feasts on the tasty final product.
Technology & Science: From robotics using LEGO MINDSTORMS to various Science experiments. Your young people will learn / practice Spanish as they are engaged in some of our most popular science and technology activities from our YPW Science & Technology camps.
Art and Crafts: It’s a creation party as you have the opportunity to work with clay, tie dying, fabric painting; make necklaces, birdhouses, or just about anything else your mind can come up with. Have fun and let your imaginations run wild as you learn new Spanish vocabulary / phrases or practice some old ones!
Each week YPW camps transforms into a crazy theme-based day. It’s a great way to start off the day! From a military battle field to a county fair, our theme-based days (you might call it a party) take campers to an exciting world that few get to experience. Each week has its own unique theme days and inventive elements where campers play games, dress in costumes and have the time of their lives in a world that is new and exciting. They may find themselves at a Hawaiian Luau or shipwrecked with Pirates … but whatever it is they are in for an exhilarating morning at YPW Spanish Day Camp.
We encourage campers to dress up for each theme; however, it is not necessary for them to enjoy the experience.
Pirates of the Caribbean
Errrr matey – hoist me black and white flag and prepare to set sail as we voyage across the “YPWsibbean”. Adventure awaits us in every port where “X” marks the spot and buried treasure is within our reach. Be ye a pirate or be ye a princess, show your spirit by wearing your favorite costume. Shiver me timbers! And, don’t forget your tiara or eye patch.
Every color has a spot in this day of chaos! Rep the rainbow and watch yourself become a human canvas as we do our best master piece impersonations. Grab your brushes and easels to get ready to paint YPW red! yellow, and blue, orange and green, pink …
Super Hero Day
It’s a bird! It’s a plane!
Come and save the day with us during this special day.
Campers and instructors are encouraged to dress-up as much as they want, with capes, face masks, tights, and costumes. Parents, bring your cameras!!
Planets and stars and red dwarves, oh my! What child isn’t intrigued by the wonders of the universe? A day of science-based activities that will teach your campers about the solar system
Cook up some science during this day! Explore chemistry, physics, and biology with food and common household items. After today, dinner time will never be the same again.
Join the Mad Science lab and go scientifically bonkers with a super cool variety of science experiments such as making your own monster slime, mini volcanos and more!
Ewwwww, Gross! You’ve never had so much fun with the ooey, gooey and GROSS activities we are preparing for you! Join us to make your own totally yucky slime to keep! Just don’t describe this stuff during dinner!
You see it in every spy movie. The spy or secret agent must make their way through a maze of criss-crossed lasers that will sound the alarm and ruin the mission with the slightest touched. Join us this day to try our version!
Let it be known that on this day we are expecting all ninjas to join us in this exciting day full of ninja like activities!
Vamos a pasarlo divertido! Let’s have fun as we participate in the “Sombrero Dance”, a “Taco Battle”, “Macho Nacho Contest” and more!
Can You Handle the Pressure?
Come and join us, for a journey into the realm of pressure. When you combine one part technology and two parts imagination with some household knowledge and a little dirt, the outcome is some excitingly unusual activities, games and experiments that are sure to capture your attention and make you say WOW!
Who doesn’t love Legos? At YPW Spanish Camp, we LOVE them, and thought it would be the best idea to have a Lego robotic day to build and program your own robot! Campers will have an opportunity to learn, build and explore utilizing LEGO® bricks. This day provides an extraordinary atmosphere for kids of all ages to build unique creations, play games, and have a lot of fun.
