A fun introductory Day Camp for children 8 - 15. Campers will learn Mandarin Chinese language and culture through stories, songs, traditional arts, and fun games. Students will be grouped according to language proficiency and age. They will learn Mandarin Chinese language and culture skills by engaging with each other in role-play and conversational practice. Students will also learn to recognize and write Chinese characters by focusing on meanings and etymology of the ideographs.
The session this year will have different themes and materials for both new and returning students. The activities foster collaboration according to campers' levels. Motivation for learning is important, so we emphasize creating a supportive and warm environment!
Campers will have an awesome time making their own art and food* that they can bring home. The campers will also have a fun time with the various outdoor activities.
