We compiled this list of language summer camps for young linguists:

F is for French, M for Mandarin, S for Spanish, I for Italian, G for German, A is for Arabic and J is for Japanese. Each camp features a significant element of foreign language and/or culture, and is in the DC region.

If you find it helpful, please remember to support our work! If you have any to add, please add them in the comments to this page and we’ll get right to it.
