This camp is designed to build the following character traits:
Curiosity: Curiosity about yourself and the world around you is key to success at this camp--you'll be encouraged to think more deeply on what it means to be a global citizen and your place in the world.
Independence: Nothing encourages independence like international travel! Gain the confidence to travel away from your family and navigate a new culture.
Bring your leadership & language skills to the next level! This experience is ideal for those looking to level up their Spanish skills (or jump-start their learning) immersed in the culture where the language was born. Explore a new culture, make new friends, and volunteer in a local elementary school as you explore some of Spain's most iconic cities. Learn from local leaders and meet teens from across North America (and the world!) as you spend two weeks working, playing, and learning together.
In the mornings, we'll sped time in the classroom with experienced instructors, before heading out into the community to put our skills to the test. After lunch, enjoy our beautiful Home Base, explore Toledo, learn about the art of Flamenco, take a traditional cooking class or hear from local leaders on a variety of topics. We'll also dive deep to discover our individual paths, including exploring our leadership styles and professional and educational goals for the future.
