The Czechoslovak Society of Arts and Sciences is organizing a Czech Immersion Summer
Camp, which will expose participants to the Czech language and culture.
The camp will run from August 14 - 20, 2016 in the “VAN- Es Camp & Conference
Centre” (51244 Range Rd 220) which is located 15 minutes outside of Sherwood Park
near Cooking Lake. For more information on this location, please see:
The camp will consist of Czech language classes, Czech cultural activities, games for all
ages, leisure time in the pool and hot tub, evenings of Czech films for children and
adults, and excellent camp food! For those who were registered in the Czech language
lessons that SVU organized this year, this camp will be a chance to practice and improve
on what you have learned with a professional Czech instructor. For those who did not
attend these classes, it will be a chance to learn or improve.
The programme will accommodate various age groups and skill levels. However, our
main objective is to expose the youngest generations of the local heritage community
with Czech background to the Czech culture and language. To this effect, it is most
desirable for members of the local Czech community to attend this camp to provide an
authentic immersion and unforgettable experience for all.
Families with small children are welcome to join. Children will have to be supervised
by their parents, grandparents or great-grandparents during the entire camp.
Please register before June 30, 2016. Registration is on a first come first serve basis.
