Located in the heart of Costa Rica’s Central Valley in the city of Heredia, Tico Lingo offers a complete Spanish immersion program curated by expert Spanish professors. We are devoted to helping students achieve Spanish fluency through immersion and cultural education. Our aim is to teach, immerse, and initiate a global understanding of Costa Rican culture and the Spanish language.
In addition to Spanish classes, Tico Lingo offers a Homestay program where students live in the homes with nearby families. We also offer volunteer opportunities, on-site cultural activities like yoga, dance, cooking, and art class, and adventure tours like white-water rafting and canopy zip line tours.
We are young, we are connected, and we are passionate about creating the perfect environment to learn Spanish and volunteer in Costa Rica. We want to spark cultural exchanges on a global level with people from around the world. Join our conversation!
About the Opportunity
2023 | June 1st – August 28th
We are looking for an experienced camp leader to help us run our Teen Spanish Summer Camp. Camp’s are 2-week jam packed programs that place students in homestays and Spanish classes and take students out on daily field trips to animal rescue centers, city museums and markets, rainforest and beaches, among many others. It’s open to 13-17 year olds many of which have never left their home country before.
The Camp Leader’s roles include planning afternoon activities, acting as a bridge between students and schools staff, helping to communicate with campers the rules, organizing the itinerary, and playing a shoulder to cry on for those students who feel homesick. Roles also include the occasional Whatsapp communication with parents as well as taking lot of photos for sharing during the camp.
