All campers must be potty-trained to be in camp.
August Alliance programs consist of daily swim and a variety of developmentally appropriate trips and activities. Program options will be available on a week to week basis.
Grupo Paseos (Grade 2-8)
The Grupo Paseos group is the Spanish Immersion group for the August Alliance. All swiminstruction is in English, but, like other Spanish Immersion groups at Bank Street, the rest of the day provides the students with the opportunity to learn, practice and reinforce the Spanish language through a variety of engaging and interactive activities. The focus is on the development of the students’ receptive and expressive language while creating a positive educational experience. By practicing the language both in and out of the classroom, teachers are able to make the campers feel comfortable, and help develop an appreciation and love for the Spanish language.
