ONLINE SUMMER CAMP

  • Spanish lesson based on your level (45 minutes)
  • Tailor made activities focused on general culture (45 minutes)

Instituto Hispánico de Murcia organised this original initiative during the pandemic and lockdown with notable success among, mainly, North American schools and we want to continue offering it to all those students of Spanish who do not have the possibility of travelling to Spain and who want to make the most of the summer in a different way.

One of the main benefits of our online summer camp is that you can participate from anywhere in the world. All you need is an internet connection and a device to get online. Whether you are at home, visiting relatives or on holiday, you can enjoy a summer camp full of adventure and fun.

What does this virtual summer camp provide?

Our online summer camp offers a wide variety of activities focused on the interests of the participants. For three hours a day, you will be immersed in a world of Spanish with games, arts, music, science, technology and much more.

In addition to fun activities, our online summer camp also offers Spanish classes, which is a great opportunity to improve your language skills and learn about the culture of Spanish-speaking countries. Our Spanish teachers are native speakers and highly trained to help you improve your listening comprehension, grammar and vocabulary.

Another great advantage of our online summer camp is the opportunity to share experiences and conversations with Spanish and Mexican host families. During the programme, you will have the opportunity to interact with a host family, which will allow you to learn more about the Hispanic culture and lifestyle.

In addition, you will be able to share your experiences and conversations with other participants, which will help you create lasting friendships and broaden your horizons.

What sets this camp apart from others?

Instead of children just watching the screen, this initiative offers interactive programmes and activities, as well as an opportunity to learn Spanish. Participants can choose from a range of activities, from learning how to cook paella to, for example, a two-day treasure hunt.

Students will also connect with their peers and with Spanish and Mexican host families. Our aim is to build a fully virtual global community where participants can enrich, play and learn from each other.

Our online summer camp is mainly conducted on platforms such as AnyMeeting or Zoom. The classes are structured according to the interests of the students because they are specific and personalised. In fact, we only accept a maximum of 10 participants per camp.

It is also worth noting that we have a Google rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars, reflecting the excellent opinion that students from all over the world have of us based on their individual reviews. This is a key differentiator that sets us apart and confirms our commitment to quality and student satisfaction.
