7 and 9 year olds had a great time and can't wait to go back next year. With two kids, specially younger kids, it was much cheaper ($470 vs. $2000) to do a day camp and just pay for a hotel for everyone - we parents enjoyed the area during the day for mini-vacations. Will consider resident camp when they... More

Both children have attended camp here, and love it! My daughter is now a counselor there. It's worth every penny!

Great opportunity for kids to learn a language in an immersion setting. The camp offers 15 different Languages to choose from.

Our 12 year old son attended the German Language camp, Waldsee,this year. He had a marvelous time and added greatly to his German skills both in speaking and writing. The community is great and supportive and fun.

My daughter attended CLV (Concordia Language Villages) for two summers in order to complete high school language requirement. She chose Les Voyageurs -- a wilderness immersion experience which focuses on the history, culture and impact of the French Voyageurs in Minnesota. For her, the combination of canoeing, camping, cooking, and conjugating was perfect. We returned this summer for I-Day --... More

International Day at the Language Villages is a fantastic way to be introduced to what CLV is all about.

I cannot say enough about Concordia Language Villages! My daughter attended the Finnish day camp and is able to understand and speak so much after just a week! The whole experience has been awesome, and we're definitely doing it again!

My daughter went to the Mandarin camp (actually in Callaway, MN, as opposed to Bemidji) for the first time this year at age 9. She loved it! The camp was very accommodating and the counselors were great. She got a real feel of the culture. From a language standpoint, she really got into it. When she got back to school... More

I went into Waldsee thinking that this was going to be a good experience for me. I thought that I would be immersed in the German language, meet new friends, and most of all have fun. None of those things ended up happening, and the whole camp was a complete disappointment. I was also unhappy by the way that the... More

I just returned from an intense week at the Lac Du Bois French ADULT program of Concordia Language Villages outside of Bemidji MN. Here is a brief overview of the Fall program I just attended. The instructors and support personnel spoke only French. My cabin mate and I spoke only in French 24/7. (This was our option and it helped).... More
