In November, five stellar Lago del Bosco staff members, including dean Eric Dario Dregni, traveled to Milwaukee to recreate a typical day of Lago del Bosco. Thanks to the support of Concordia Language Villages and the National Italian American Foundation, 72 students in Milwaukee were able to experience a taste of Lago del Bosco. This event was held at Victory School- the Italian immersion school in the Milwaukee Public School district.
On the cool fall day, students were able to enjoy many camp activities: an Italian scout game, Roverino; traditional Italian dance lessons; mural painting, mosaic making and even paper marbling. Some students were able to apply their language skills in a new setting and others were able to experience foreign language immersion for the first time. Super Italiano even came for a surprise visit and had students promise to speak only Italian!
After most of the work was completed, lunch was served, and the students who had attended camp the previous summer gave a presentation of the menu which included: rigatoni with sausage, salad, and biscotti for dessert.
Overall, students, parents, and the staff of Victory School had an amazing day and were impressed with what happens at Lago del Bosco. They are looking to send their children there this summer!
