Program provided in partnership with UBC's Department of Linguistics
Become a detective, be a linguist! Through a mix of indoor and outdoor activities, our goal is for campers to develop critical thinking and have fun with languages. Activities vary from writing and designing posters, to searching for clues around the campsite. All their training and challenges will prepare each camper for their final quest: to discover the biggest secret... all languages are mysterious and beautiful in their own ways!
In this camp, campers will:
• Learn about the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet)
• Encounter the different subdivisions of Linguistics: phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, computational linguistics and more!
• Be exposed to new languages from around the world, including coding languages
• Be challenged to find the common areas and differences between languages
• Play outdoor games, design posters and engage in arts and crafts
• Develop critical thinking and problem solving
• Enjoy a glimpse to the field of linguistics
• Increase interest in other languages!
• This is not a language instruction program; campers must speak English fluently.
• This is an outdoor camp so please come dressed appropriately for the weather.
• Above all, campers are going to have fun!
Prerequisites: Campers must speak, read and write fluently in English.
Required Equipment: This is an outdoor camp so dress for the weather; bring a hat and sunscreen.
