Welcome to C.A.S.IT. Welcome to Italy.

In 1995, Centro Attività Scolastiche Italiane (C.A.S.IT., Inc.), as proposed by the Italian Consulate General in Boston, was formed as a non-profit educational and professional organization, for the promotion of Italian language and culture in the public and private schools of New England.

Our Mission is to assist communities that wish to introduce, preserve, rejuvenate or broaden the study of the Italian language in their schools. CASIT offers grants of varying amounts for the establishment of Italian language and cultural programs with the ultimate purpose to institute Italian as a subject in the school curriculum.

2014 Full Immersion Italian Summer Program for Children

C.A.S.IT. Inc.
(Centro Attivita’ Scolastiche Italiane), in cooperation with the Eliot Innovation School and the Office of the Education Director of the Italian Consulate is proud to sponsor its second Full Immersion Italian Summer Camp for students ages 4-10.

Full Immersion Summer Program
The camp is a great opportunity for students to be exposed early to a foreign language and get them excited about language learning. There are many benefits that learning a foreign language provides, from experiencing new cultures to gaining the skills needed to succeed in today’s world. The camp will be full of fun activities that will prove to be a blast for all children! We will commence each day with a motivational song or game. Afterwards we will branch off into groups that will consist of different themes, to be presented and practiced through developmentally appropriate hands-on games and activities. At the end of the day, we will close with a song and/or review activities.

Since this Italian Camp program is new, space is limited. Enrollment is on a first come, first serve basis, with a $200.00 fee per week. If you would like
your child to participate, please complete and return the section below, together with your non-refundable deposit in the amount of $100.00.
