Learn Spanish in Madrid this summer!
Our Kids Spanish Camp is the perfect way for your 'peques' to spend the summer!
Give your children a summer to remember with LAE Kids’ Urban Spanish summer camp in Madrid. Our camp is unique, personal and tailored to your child and their needs and interests.
Our Spanish Summer Camp for kids 4 – 6 years old
Each week our camp has one group of kids 4 – 6 years old, which is made up of a maximum of 6 children! Spaces are limited and we won’t open extra groups so early booking is recommended.
Our fun-packed, exciting and Spanish-filled camp will help your child work on key developmental skills, Spanish fluidity and teach them more about the Spanish culture. They’ll spend their days painting, cooking, dancing and getting their hands dirty, while at the same time learning Spanish with our proven methodology.

Our Summer Camp for 4-6 y/o
Max. 6 per group (only one group per week)
We host our camp at LAE Kids’ young learners’ school campus, which is perfectly adapted for our Kids to enjoy an exciting summer in the heart of Madrid. It’s located in a leafy suburb, opposite a park where we spend the sunny summer mornings playing games and eating our snacks!
Our successful and engaging, full-immersion methodology involves the teacher speaking only Spanish and encourages our students to use the language whilst playing, moving and getting creative. This method fires up their cognitive pathways making hundreds of connections allowing them to recall the information just like they do in their native language.
Whilst we use the word ‘classroom’ we like to make it clear that our camp is not going to be like school. Our classrooms are designed to inspire, bring joy and enable the children to make strong bonds with their classmates. What is truly special about our camp is the small group numbers, which allow us to take the children on mini-excursions once a week where they can see Madrid and live the language. We also spend our break time at the park nearby under the shady trees where we can burn off some energy.
Each day has a theme, like animals, art, technology, sports, dance, food and cooking, and the teacher uses these themes to weave in the vocabulary and structures to ensure that we build on previous knowledge every day. The changing themes and activities keep them engaged and focused.
Even though our activities sound like lots of fun, they’re more than just games! Your children are sponges at this age and they are constantly learning new skills. We don’t just work on new vocabulary and grammatical structures, but also developmental skills too. Making an omelette teaches our students how to cook and follow instructions and helps them learn kitchen and food vocabulary. Painting a picture helps develop fine motor skills and also enables us to teach colours and other vocabulary. Even playing shop teaches them numeracy, vocabulary and works on their social skills.
Shh, don’t let them know – they think they’re just having loads of fun!
Your child will be in a group of children from all over the world! The teachers put a focus on helping students to bond with their classmates and gain confidence to speak and participate in Spanish. Only Spanish is spoken by the teachers but they have the ability to converse in other languages when needed.
We start each morning at 09.15 and finish at 13.15, from Monday to Friday. We provide a healthy snack for the children between 11.00-11.30, where we have a short break to get some fresh air. We cater for all allergies and dietary requirements.
For those looking for a longer day camp, we have our Spanish Art & Craft school in the afternoon. The children can bring a packed lunch or we can provide one and they will have a supervised lunch time from 13.15 to 14.15.
At 14.30 we begin Art school with a local artist and Spanish teacher. They will use a range of materials to create wonderful works of art, study basic techniques and get very very messy! We will spend some time outside collecting nature for our projects but we will keep in the shade of the trees and limit the time outside to 20 minutes.
At the end of the week we will have our Gallery Opening where friends and family are welcome to come and celebrate with us.
