ASMC 2020 Mandarin Summer Camp



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.

2. Program Objectives/项目宗旨


–To provide fun, communal and corporate atmosphere for Mandarin Immersion.


–To offer the lessons and resources needed for a smooth transition from Summer break back to Mandarin classes in school year.


–To promote more inspiring and entertaining events and activities for cultural exploration.


–To introduce a gateway to learning Mandarin in a more engaging way for students who have never had exposure to Mandarin before.

3. Program Layout/项目设计


Our summer camp is offered for students in Grades preK-8  and is composed of four sessions, and each lasting 2 weeks, making the total length of the program 8 weeks long from June 08 to July 31.


Each day is composed of two parts, Morning Cultural & Historical Exploration and Afternoon Culture Enrichment Activities. A specific theme will be assigned to each session, 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.
