Teen Program Overview

Along our more than 25 years CPI has perfected Costa Rica trips for teenagers. Costa Rica is a safe, democratic and healthy country that is frequently noted as the adventure and language learning capital of Latin America. Our small groups ensure participants make lifelong friendships and improve Spanish language abilities! Each TEEN can choose campus(es) and the program model & week(s) which best meets their interests.

Teen Summer Camp Specifics

Mornings: SPANISH CLASSES

Conversation is the GOAL! Students are divided into classes with other teens based on speaking ability to make the most of their Spanish language classes. Mini groups – maximum 5 per class - allows students to talk a lot and receive quality, personalized instruction.

Afternoons: ADVENTURE
Evenings: HOMESTAY
Weekends: MAXIMIZED ADVENTURE

NOTE ON SUMMER CAMP RESTRICTIONS: The minimum number of students required to offer the Summer Teen Camp is four participants. CPI reserves the right to change and modify the selected campus reservation for schools that have the minimum number of students. For example, if there are 4 teens enrolled in Flamingo, and only 1 in Heredia and 1 in Monteverde in the same week, CPI has the right to modify the reservation and move all the participants together that week in Flamingo, cancelling reservations in Heredia and Monteverde. The costs of transportation, arrival and departure packages involving a change will be paid by the student, as is usual.

For more details and to request itineraries, please contact the CPI Admissions Office or a CPI representative.
