Have you heard about Culture Camp? Penobscot Language School offers this 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. summer day camp during which children “visit” a different country each day through hands-on activities generally led by native-speaking instructors. This year’s camp included some amazingly creative campers who visited Italy, Spain, Portugal, China, Germany, Mexico and Russia. Under instructor leadership, students also made their own ethnic lunch each day.
This year’s campers decorated Matryoshka (Russian nesting dolls) and carnival masks on Italy day. They learned Chinese calligraphy, a Spanish game, decorated lanterns (German day) and made trajineras (boats typical of an area in the Mexican Yucatan peninsula). Lunches included making pasta and ravioli, Chinese dumplings, Mexican picaditas and more.
