Junior Program Our special “Junior Programs” are designed for students 14 to 18 years old who would like to spend a summer learning Spanish in Spain, with 2 keys differences from the traditional summer camps. First, these programs are for international students only, not mixed with Spaniards. Second, the Junior Programs are not held on an all-in-one campus (residence hall, sports facilities, classes, activities, counselors, etc.). Instead, participants will live, eat and sleep in a residence hall or with a host family and go to morning Spanish classes at a nearby school. There will be 1 “tutor” for every 12-15 stu- dents who functions like a counselor would, providing supervision and accompanying www.enfocamp.com the students on all extra-curricular activities. These programs also include one excur- sion per 2-week session and afternoon trips around the city.8 Availability: Granada & Seville.
