KEC Hosting Summer Spanish Camp! 








ELKINS--The Kump Education Center will again host an exciting, week-long summer Spanish language camp that will provide fun and educational opportunities for area youth. The Around the World-themed camp is designed for children ages 5-10 and will transport participants to different Spanish-speaking countries.

Spanish Camp is set for July 15-19, from 8:30-3:30 daily, and is directed by Leah Devine. This is her second year leading this popular summer camp at the KEC.


Devine currently teaches Spanish at Elkins High School. Her 18 years of Spanish teaching experience include middle and high school and Spanish summer camps, ranging from lower elementary at The Arts Center to weeklong Spanish Immersion camps for high schoolers. She also directed a Spanish camp for elementary and middle school-age youth in coordination with Mountain Laurel Learning Cooperative (MLLC) in Tucker County.

“We will travel around the world and visit one or more countries each day. We’ll explore arts and culture, and, for lunches, the campers will prepare traditional foods of that country,” said Devine. Participants will also listen to music and create art inspired by the countries. 


“Spanish Camp will also pique young campers’ interest in Spanish through immersive play,” she added. Repetition of vocabulary will help the students comprehend and communicate in Spanish while playing games, preparing and sampling foods, and making art in Spanish. 


“I look forward to creating a fun and exciting experience with a second language. I am excited to welcome new and returning campers. No prior knowledge of Spanish is needed, just an excitement for learning through cooking, art, and play,” said Devine.


Spanish Camp will take place at the Gov. Kump House in Elkins. Enrollment is limited to sixteen, so registration before May 15 is suggested. Tuition for the week-long camp is $300, which includes lunch and snacks.
