Nosara Spanish Institute is excited to partner with Nosara Day Camp to offer families traveling together a Family & Culture Package that promises to be fun and educational for everyone. Our week(s) long program provides a full morning of cultural and language activities leaving the afternoons for families to explore Nosara and the surrounding areas.
The program of the package is divided into two unique components based on age:
Parents and youth 16 and older
Will have the opportunity to take 20 hours of Group Spanish Classes. You will experience our communicative classroom teaching approach where we encourage spontaneous and creative use of the Spanish language for real life situations. Our native instructors carefully monitor the progress of each student and adapt their teachings to suit individual learning styles and capabilities. Classes are Monday-Friday from 8:00am to 11:40am and participants will be placed according to level in classes of a maximum of 6 students.
Family members 15 and under
Will begin each day (Monday-Friday) at 7:45am with Nosara Day Camp. The camp is geared to children ages 5-15 who like to explore, get wet, and take adventures! Their strength is exposing kids to activities, environments, language and Guanacaste culture that most visiting families might be challenged to find on their own: exploring hidden tide pools and bat caves (accessible only at low tide), throwing hand-lines with native fishermen, hiking to jungle waterfalls, and visiting with local ranching families to bake, visit the animals, or take an an ox-cart ride… No two days of the week are the same. While this is not an intensive language program they do teach basic Spanish in their daily activities, and the activities provided by staff are provided in Spanish and English. Additionally, CPR and first-aid trained native speaking counselors lead all sessions and provide opportunities to learn everyday Spanish vocabulary in the context of the day’s experience. Price includes all equipment (snorkels, goggles, SUP, climbing gear, etc), all activity costs and entry fees, transportation to and from camp, fresh fruit snack and a healthy lunch. The Nosara Day Camp is authentic, safe, and fun! More information on Nosara Day Camp is available here.
