Campers at Nordic Fest, 2012Campers at Nordic Fest, 2012Children ages 4-10 are invited to join us this summer and learn about languages and cultures at Northeast Iowa Montessori School.

Four sessions of week-long language courses will be offered in the Spanish and Norwegian. The camps will be taught by native speakers and experienced teachers. Campers will learn numbers, letters, songs, and common phrases in the language of their designated camp. In addition, campers will participate in art projects, games, dances, and cooking activities that reflect the Spanish or Norwegian cultures. Camp activities include building a pinata, visits with native Spanish speakers, and cooking traditional Hispanic or Norwegian dishes;  as well as trips to the Vesterheim Museum and exploring traditional Norwegian musical instruments.

In the afternoon, Amanda Rhine of Discover Happy! will guide children through a series of wellness activities that explore the human body. Each day hands on activities will focus on learning new healthy approaches to life through movement, healthy food choices, and using positive emotional response skills.
