The Spanish camp is part of KIDSROCK, a popular youth camp that runs in the summer on UMD’s campus.

Kids enjoy a variety of games and activities that introduce them to the language. The five day camp which started Monday, is being taught by UMD students who are Spanish majors.

"Theres some kids that come with a little bit of background but there’s other kids who this is all new to them so it’s really fun to see how much they've learned just from Monday,” Danika Brown, a camp counselor, said.

On Thursday kids participated in a scavenger hunt and were learning how to say clothing, colors, and animals in Spanish.

The camp is meant to encourage kids to learn another language and expand their cultural understanding. The last day of the camp is Friday.
