2014 summer camp


2014 Summer Program - Explore China!  

Summer camp is geared for children ages 3-12.  No prior experience with Chinese is necessary and children are grouped according to age and level.  Each week campers will be introduced to a new and exciting theme.  While immersed in Chinese culture, fun activities, and making friends, campers will barely notice they’re learning a language! 

For those interested in beginning or continuing Chinese lessons during the summer but without the time commitment of camp, our standard group classes continue subject to sufficient enrollment.  Private lessons and tutoring are also available.  Contact the ChinaFriends office for more information.

Explore the Chinese culture and language in a fun and stimulating environment! Each weekly session focuses on what you would need to know to take your first trip to China. Chinese Food - what and how to order; Shopping in China - Stores to go to and what to buy; Living in China - Checking into the hotel or renting a house in the country; Transportation - How to get a ticket, and different ways to get around the cities and the country.  From the moment your Traveler arrives, they will be led on a journey of language and learning that will open up their minds and eyes to the many facets of China.   This program encourages campers to live in the language and aims to develop each student’s capabilities as well as confidence in speaking Chinese. Our supportive and comfortable learning environment encourages students to use and explore the language. Travelers are divided into age-appropriate and/or language skill-level groups.

Each sesson includes:

   “Culture” classes which will introduce our Traveler to some of the unique aspects of the country's customs, traditions, and food.

   Chinese classes that introduce level-appropriate language skills and include many songs and games, allow for the children to have fun while learning to communicate.

   A “world sports” component enables your Traveler to learn traditional games, activities and sports  

Camp sessions will leverage current Chinese language skills as well as increase awareness and appreciation of Chinese history and culture.
