Arabic Summer Camp

The camp has been canceled for summer 2020 due to public safety guidelines related to COVID-19  

The SQCC Arabic Summer Camp offers full Arabic immersion for your child in a welcoming and nurturing environment. Our summer Arabic camp provides your child with opportunities to practice their language skills while exploring the culture through music, singing, theater, dancing, movies, cooking, arts and crafts activities, and so much more. The mornings are designated to Arabic language learning with a focus on reading and writing instructions. The afternoons are dedicated to enhancing your child's critical thinking and inspiring their creative minds through child-centered cultural activities and field trips where the focus will be on speaking.

The instructions and various activities of the summer camp will be entirely in Arabic to ensure a full-immersion experience. The camp is staffed by highly qualified teachers, volunteer counselors, and Arabic program administrators. 

Our well-crafted summer camp program is the gateway to your child's Arabic higher level language proficiency and fluency achievement.
