"A Fantastic Journey to the Rain Forest," a Spanish language day camp at Central Lakes College in Brainerd, provided 32 hours of context learning to children in kindergarten through grade 5.
Cami Brusseau, a Spanish elementary school teacher in the Wayzata School District, used games, songs, stories and visual arts to promote comprehension.
Liliana Hennis of the CLC faculty, who helped implement the Spanish program at St. Francis School in Brainerd, coordinated the camp. She and Brusseau received training in teaching Spanish at Concordia College, Moorhead, with instructor Carol Ann Pesola, author of the nationally acclaimed book, "Languages and Children."
The camp was divided into separate four-day experiences for K-2 and grades 3-5.
For information on next year's camp, call Hennis at 855-8183.
