¡Bienvenidos a Casa Hispana!

We extend a warm welcome to our vibrant community and university students alike. Casa Hispana is not just a place to learn about the Spanish language and culture, but also a space to connect, share, and celebrate our diverse backgrounds.

Through our activities, including language classes, cultural events, and more, we aim to bridge the gap between the community and students. Let's come together, learn from each other, and create lasting connections that enrich us all.

Join us in embracing the diversity of our community and the university, as we embark on this journey of cultural exploration and understanding. 

Spanish Immersion Summer Camp July 2024

"Traveling and Exploring Spanish Speaking Countries"

July 15th-19th from 9:45AM-2PM

Two different groups at the same time and place

Explorers: 4-6 years old

Campers will be immersed in the Spanish language and culture while enjoying different activities. Your child will absorb and learn the language through natural interactions in singing and body expression, yoga, games, artistic crafts, folkloric music and dance, cooking, athletics, movie talk, and much more.

Our goal is to encourage the love of the Spanish language. Since all of our daily activities are conducted in Spanish, we use various strategies to help all the children understand, regardless of their level.

All of our teachers are native Spanish speakers — from Argentina, Peru, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Spain.

Cost: $320, and $280 for siblings

Learn Spanish, Let's Play! Spanish for children

This program provides a space and a time for children to play, sing, cook, and do arts and crafts together with native speakers as instructors. In this way, kids learn by playing and by developing practical skills to communicate in Spanish in the aforementioned settings.

The games are designed to help children to naturally incorporate the right pronunciation (music and speaking), to develop listening skills (instructions in Spanish), as well as to gain some basic writing in Spanish by exposure to children’s books.

Our program provides children with the opportunity to establish relationships with other children in Spanish, as well as with other native speakers of the Latino community in Rochester.

Ages: 4 -9 years old

Fall: TBD

Spring: TBD

Cost: $240
