In a world that becomes more interconnected every day, travel goals and international experiences become easier and easier to achieve.

This summer, save money while still soaking up a different culture, right here in your own backyard.

The City of Placerville Community Services Department has a number of great “international” summer camps for kids. Vamos a Mexico and Vamos a España will educate children on the exciting language and culture of Spain or Mexico by providing an entertaining immersion experience with “no English” times and fun activities. Spanish camps also start this month; receive a discount on the second child from the same family who signs up. Another great way for children to experience a different culture is through Hula Dance or Middle East Belly Dance classes.

Adults can culturally connect at the City of Placerville’s ChaCha Salsa Mambo, Middle East Belly Dance, and Hula Dance classes; or, by learning to make an international dish at a Thai Cooking class. Bon voyage!

For more information on these and other classes, call the City of Placerville’s Community Services Department at 530-642-5232, visit, or stop by the office at 549 Main Street in Placerville.
