Spanish Immersion Dinner

  • Booker T. Washington State Park 5801 Champion Road Chattanooga, TN 37416 (map)

Calling all adults!

Immerse yourself in Spanish and share a delicious meal with the Language South team, a weeklong Spanish immersion camp for youth. You’ll add some fresh fire to your Spanish learning whether you’re diving in for the first time or taking your current Spanish to the next level. You’ll dine with us, speak and listen to lots of Spanish, and engage in a fun Spanish activity. Language South counselors spend a week training for camp, and they’ll practice their counselor Spanish skills with you that night, creating an immersion environment that inspires you to be lifelong learners and lovers of languages and cultures.


Entrée: Pollo Pibil with roasted carrots and broccoli, quick pickled cabbage, and rice or vegetarian option of marinated pressed soy pibil. Pollo Pibil is a dish from the Yucatán peninsula region of Mexico originating from techniques developed by the Mayan culture. 

Dessert: ChocoTorta: An Argentinian layered cake dessert made with chocolate cookies, crumbled and pressed into cream cheese with fresh brewed coffee and dulce de leche.

About the Chef:

Shane Stone is the head chef at El Pueblo Spanish Camp, and owner of his catering company High Haute Foods. Last summer, our campers loved the camp food. Many even mentioned it as one of their three favorite parts of camp! Shane loves to travel and says it inspires him to learn and be more creative in his cooking. He feels it is important to learn the language and experience the culture of the countries he visits to understand why certain people made the decisions they did about food. He loves having the opportunity to be an integral part of a cultural experience for the campers at El Pueblo. He believes that broadening our cultural horizons creates empathy and he enjoys being a part of that at camp. More information about High Haute Foods here

About Language South:


Campers at El Pueblo develop their love for languages and other people, and leave inspired to explore Spanish at home, school, and in future travels. They play games, sing songs, create art, and more, all while engaging with the Spanish language. This overnight language immersion camp takes place at the Oaks Group Camp at Booker T. Washington State Park in the first couple of weeks in June. While you can’t learn a language in a week, you can discover a passion and love for new languages and cultures that leads to a lifetime of learning. No matter how much Spanish they know, kids and teens will be inspired by their success with Spanish at El Pueblo! More information about Language South here
