Great Lakes Group Program

ECEP offers two summer immersion programs for high school student groups from Spain.  These students live with volunteer families in Michigan.  ECEP is looking for host families now for Summer 2020! Please consider opening your home and spending some of your summer vacation learning about a new culture.

West Michigan-area 4-Week Immersion Program with activities: June 26 – July 24, 2020

High school students from Spain come to the U.S. on a 4-week program to enjoy the host family experience. Primarily, the students are living as a member of an American family, but the students are also able to come together as a group twice a week to do “American” activities. These activities include: bowling, roller skating, going to the beach, shopping at an outlet mall, visiting Craig’s Cruisers and Michigan’s Adventure. The students can join the group activities  on Tuesday and Thursdays in the Grand Rapids area.

West Michigan-area 6-Week Total Immersion Program: June 29 – Aug 10, 2020

High school students from Spain spend six weeks living the “American Experience” with a volunteer host family in a total immersion experience. The students become part of the family and engage in whatever summer activities the host family has planned.  Students choose this program in order to be immersed in the English language and culture.
