Our community is a busy, fun and educational environment before, during, and after the school day. EBI students and non-EBI students, from around the Bay area, have the opportunity to participate in an array of extracurricular programs at EBI that enrich their lives and support them in exploring their own personal interests. For more information on any of these programs, please contact the EBI Community Programs Office at email@example.com. You can find the Community Programs Financial Policies here (link is external).
EBI offers a variety of enrichment classes in Spanish and English during the school year that provide our students with the opportunity to engage in structured choice activities after school that encourage them to explore their own creativity and interests.These enrichment classes vary from session to session and expose children to a variety of experiences that help them to discover new talents and skills.
Enrichment class prices may vary whether a child is enrolled in the Unlimited 5-Day or Unlimited 3-Day EBI Aventura option. They are only open to EBI students.

School Year Camps
EBI’s school year camps are carefully designed with the interests and developmental needs of our campers in mind. Even though each camp is different, they all include an array of activities such as storytelling, arts, crafts, culinary arts, games, sports and field trips. Campers learn Spanish through experience, and each session has an overarching theme to guide their explorations. Both EBI and non-EBI students are welcome.
Join us for our October ¡Día de los Muertos! camp where we explore the traditions of the Day of the Dead. Campers learn the history of the holiday and how it is celebrated in many different cultures. They will also make history come to life through storytelling and dance! They will create vibrant sugar skull art, learn how to cook the traditional foods for this celebration, and much more! Join us as we explore the magic meaning behind Día de los Muertos!
During our Worlds of Fun! camp, campers will embark on a journey around the world to explore new places and learn about different cultures. Each day will be a new adventure! Our camp is packed with fun and stimulating activities that involve teamwork and support artistic expression. The campers experience recipes, sports, games, dances and useful Spanish phrases from every place we visit. This is a great opportunity for our campers to explore the differences and similarities of people around the world as they learn to appreciate the beauty of each place and become increasingly internationally minded!
February is Black History Month! This year we are calling all campers to come and explore the contributions of Africans and African-Americans to U.S. culture. Campers will learn about influential Africans and African-Americans in literature, science, sports and the arts. They will taste special afro-descendant foods and dance to the rhythm of African drums!
It's an adventure! It's a camp out! During this week, our campers will explore everything necessary to camp outdoors. They will learn how to put together a tent, forest safety, hiking skills, how to be respectful towards wildlife, how to tie knots, how to build a bonfire, first aid, compass navigation and much more! AND they will make their own personal camp kit. At the end of the week, we put all of our outdoor knowledge into practice during our field trip day!
