Our summer camp is offered for students in Grades preK-8! The preK~4 kids will be grouped separately from 5th~8th graders for better learning and effective classroom management.
This program is composed of four sessions, and each lasting 2 weeks, making the total length of the program 10 weeks long from June 1st to August 5th.
Each day is composed of two parts, Morning Cultural & Historical Exploration and Afternoon Culture Enrichment Activities. A specific theme will be assigned to each week, and the weekly course curriculum, enrichment activities and field trips will be particularly designed for that theme.
Friday Lunch is included! Campers will have hands-on cooking class every Friday. But campers need to bring their own lunch, snack and drinks Monday through Thursday.
1. Program Introduction/项目简介
School is out, vacation is here and our fun doesn't stop at Mandarin Summer Camp!
Students tend to forget a lot of material they learned from school due to the lack of exposure and practice during the 3-month long summer break. This kind of phenomenon can be seen more commonly in learning Mandarin. Moreover, Summer is also the best time for children and teenagers to explore new things and learn new skills that could potentially inspire them to explore the “unknown side” of themselves.

Chinese Historical Society of America Museum The Chinese Historical Society of America Museum was founded in 1963. CHSA is the oldest and largest organization in the country dedicated to the documentation, study, and presentation of Chinese American history.
Asian Art Museum of SF After under the exposure to the Chinese artwork and history for two weeks, we'd like to bring our campers to see some mastermaspieces in person. This would hopefully inspire them and encourage them regarding their potential to create a new-age definition of Asian art in the future decades.
Randall Museum The Randall Museum offers youth and adults opportunities for active involvement and recreation in an integrated program of arts and sciences.
Treasure Hunt in Golden Gate Park We will bring our campers to the Golden Gate Park for a Scavenger Hunt field trip, which will require them to utilize what they have learned and practiced during the week to unlock all the achievements.
