LSU Summer Language Camp 

Welcome to the LSU Summer Language Camp 2024.  We are thrilled to offer this opportunity again for your children.  Last summer we offered Spanish and German language camps and are thrilled to announce we are expanding to also include Chinese, French, and Italian for summer 2024!  This program will be for elementary-aged students (6-10 years old) and will run for two weeks:

  • June 10-14 (9 am - 4 pm)
  • June 17-21 (9 am - 4 pm)

The LSU Summer Language Camp will take place at LSU's World Language Lab & Resource Center located in Prescott Hall room 234.  Prescott Hall is located on LSU's Quad right in the heart of campus. 

The camp offers Elementary-aged students two weeks of language and cultural instruction with experienced LSU faculty. Get immersed in this unique experience where students will participate in a variety of activities, exposing them to world languages and cultures.  


The German language camp will be taught again by Dr. Mike Dettinger, a Senior Instructor of German at LSU.  The Italian language camp will be taught by Katy Provenzale-Monroe, a Senior Instructor of Italian at LSU, and Spanish will be taught by Martha Flores, Instructor of Spanish at LSU.  The French camp will be taught by Liz Maione, a French Instructor and PhD candidate at LSU, and the Chinese camp will be taught by an experienced instructor from LSU.  Each language program will also have a student worker to assist with language lessons and activities with the students.  Below is a short description of the camp's activities:
