Mandarin Immersion Summer Science Camp

The Sum­mer Sci­ence Camp aims to help chil­dren devel­op a sense of curios­i­ty and explo­ration as well as increase their abil­i­ty to under­stand Chinese through inter­ac­tive lessons and activ­i­ties. Your child will get the chance to use their hands to explore sci­ence projects from every day house­hold items. Our goal is to provide a safe, edu­ca­tion­al, and fun envi­ron­ment where chil­dren can learn about sci­ence and also appre­ci­ate Chi­ne­se cul­ture with­out leav­ing Amer­i­ca.

Learn­ing Chi­ne­se lan­guage and cul­ture has become increas­ing­ly pop­u­lar and it has much to share.  Chi­ne­se cul­ture is one of the longest stand­ing soci­eties in the world and also one of the old­est civ­i­liza­tions that has a rich and ancient his­to­ry. Chi­ne­se phi­los­o­phy, art, and sci­ence great­ly affect­ed the devel­op­ment of the west­ern world; and it con­tin­ues to be an influ­en­tial pow­er even today. Though our children live half a world away, they have every rea­son to learn about their cul­tur­al her­itage, to be proud of their roots, and to be inspired by the many Chi­ne­se tra­di­tions and help keep them alive.

How to prepare

Chil­dren ages 5–10 who can under­stand basic spo­ken Man­dar­in Chi­ne­se.

Our goal during summer camp is to have children continue to be immersed in Mandarin Chinese and have the opportunity to listen and practice using Chinese.

They should be able to understand simple verbal instructions like

  • "take this" 拿著
  • "run/walk" 跑/走
  • "here/there" 這裏/那裡
  • "sit down" 坐下來

This allows us to use basic instructions to help them improve their Chinese.

Additional Notes
Please pack a lunch and snack.
