Our Kids' Spanish Summer 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 Kid’s Spanish Summer Camp for 5 – 8 year-old
Each week our camp has one group of kids 5 – 8 years old, which is made up of a maximum of 8 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 5-8 y/o
Max. 6 per group (only one group per week)
Our Kids’ Spanish Summer Camp is on the same floor as our adult school but is in a separate area. It is very near a park so we can go there under the shaded trees for our mid morning break and for the children to burn off some energy. We have air-con in each classroom to keep everyone cool through the warmer months. They get a water bottle in their welcome pack and we have filtered water and we ensure the children drink plenty of water throughout the day.
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.
The morning curriculum (09.00-13.00):
Each day has a theme (animals, technology, sports, dance, food & cooking etc) and the teachers plan the vocabulary and grammatical content based on the themes and according to the age and level group. They work on projects both individually and in groups. The teachers put a focus on helping the students to bond with their classmates and gaining 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 also organise a trip to a museum, park or cultural centre each week. The camp has a lovely feel and the children have such an amazing time whilst studying Spanish.

The Afternoon curriculum (13.00-15.30):
Your children will have a hot and fresh lunch served in the school and we can work with all dietary requirements.
After lunch we begin our afternoon activities.
We learn about Spanish artists, replicate their art work using a range of materials and get even messier. We cover artists such as Picasso, Gaudí, Sorrolla and Dali. We have both an art teacher and a Spanish language teacher in the classroom throughout. It is a great deal of fun and we make some fantastic art whilst learning more Spanish. You are welcome to come 15 minutes earlier on Friday to our Art Gallery Opening where your children can show you their work. Whilst the famous artists are our inspiration, we use many materials to re-create their art and practice our Spanish such as paint, lego, technology, science experiments etc.
At the end of the week we will have our Gallery Opening where friends and family are welcome to come and celebrate with us.
