Language Immersion Summer Camp- The International School | Kids Out and About Portland

Language Immersion Summer Camp- The International School

*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 08/06/2021
At The International School Summer Camp, children will enjoy a world of fun while learning Mandarin, Spanish, or Japanese. International language and culture will come to life through hands-on projects, stories, songs, games and outdoor fun with our teachers from around the world. Campers are placed into groups based on their age and language exposure, so there’s room for all levels of experience. Whether they’re learning a new language or already fluent, campers will love our summer traditions of field days, field trips, cultural music and movement activities, ice cream parties, and more!

COVID-19 Health & Safety Practices

We are a certified Child Care Center with the Oregon Early Learning Division (ELD) and abide by all local and state health and safety guidelines. The International School has been open and successfully operating our preschool and Kindergarten programs as Emergency Child Care under these protocols since September 2020. Safety measures include:

  • Lower overall capacity
  • Stable cohorts (campers will only interact with a small set group of others campers, rather than all children at camp)

Summer Camp Staff

We’re so proud of our summer camp staff!  All of our teachers and staff members are dedicated to providing a fun, safe, and welcoming camp environment for your child.

Our camp teachers come from all over the world and have native-level fluency of the languages they teach.  Most are also teachers at The International School during the school year or have taught with our camp programs in the past.  They have a wealth of experience working with young language learners.

Our summer administrative team is here to answer questions and facilitate a smooth camp experience.  Let us know how we can help!

We are all trained in CPR and first aid.  The International School also has a dedicated Health and Safety Coordinator on campus during camp hours to help ensure the health and safety of our campers.

Behavior and Safety

The International School strives to provide a fun and safe environment for all our campers.  We expect all campers and their parents/guardians to behave in a manner that is safe, appropriate, and friendly.  If a camper behaves in a way that the staff believes to be unsafe, inappropriate or unfriendly, we will address the situation by speaking with the child and, if needed, the parents. The International School reserves the right to expel or temporarily exclude a camper for repeated or extreme misbehavior.  In the event of expulsion or exclusion, no refund will be issued.
