If you’re still looking for summer activities for the little ones, here’s something with a cultural twist.

Mi Escuelita Preschool serves Dallas area immigrant children, helping them learn English and American culture. But this summer, the tables will turn. Local kids can learn all about our neighbors south of the border through the school’s camp, Passport to Mexico held at Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church.

The program will introduce children to basic Spanish, arts, culture, food and native dances of Mexico. Mi Escuelita held its first camp last year with a huge response from the community.

It runs July 18-28, open to children age 3-7. Registration costs $125 per week, and the deadline to sign up is June 1. Call Gayle Nave at 214.526.0220.

Mi Escuelita began in 1978, working with disadvantaged children of all cultures and languages to help them excel in math, science, English, reading and social skills.
