Camp offers Spanish immersion

About 70 elementary school students will learn the basics of Spanish this week at the Anne Arundel County public schools' Spanish immersion camp at the Arlington Echo Outdoor Education Center in Millersville.

Native and non-native Spanish-speaking county teachers will provide a Spanish-only environment in which students can gain an appreciation of the language and culture, according to a school system announcement.

The campers - students who will be in the first through fifth grades when school opens this month - will play word games and participate in skits, music and art. Other activities include seining, crabbing, sail decorating, swimming and canoeing.

The camp runs from tomorrow through Friday.
