ASMC 2022 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 3 sessions, and each lasting 2 weeks, making the total length of the program 6 weeks long from June 8 July 15.


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.


Campers will need to bring their own healthy lunch, snack, and drinks Monday through Friday.


Mask is required until further notice.

Session 2: June 21 ~ July 01   The Little Musician (小小音乐家)

  • We got confirmation from the SFUSD that public schools (including Lawton) will be closed on June 20(Monday) in observance of Juneteeth. So our Mandarin summer camp is also closed.

  • Juneteeth is on June 19th, Sunday. If a holiday falls on a Sunday, the following Monday will be treated as a holiday.

  • 我们已和学区确认,公立学校将在6月20日(星期一)放假以庆祝六月节,中文夏令营也停课一天。

  • 六月节是在6月19日星期日,对大部分联邦雇员来说,如果假日是在星期天,那么接下来的星期一会被安排为假日。

Do you love music? No matter what your answer is, you'd better don't miss our best relaxed session before the back-to-school season. Enjoy and learn the Chinese Traditional Opera would be so interesting. Pop songs in China are very pleasant to learn.
