BELLVILLE — Several foreign language students from Knox County are joining fellow students from across Ohio at Templed Hills Camp for a week of intensive language instruction and learning.

Sponsored and operated by the Ohio Foreign Language Association, the residential foreign language camp is for students in grades three through eight. Camp staff members are global languages teachers from around Ohio, and the counselors are advanced language high school students or college students. The campers have small group classes throughout the day, punctuated with songs and games. They also practice language by cooking, dancing, singing, playing sports, hiking and making arts and crafts.
