These are just some of the fun activities planned for language learning in our outdoor adventures! Our little campers will learn useful skills and vocabulary for camping in the wild. They will also have their own camping adventure as they sleep in their sleeping bags in a tent, make their own treasure maps, go on a scavenger hunt, and make s’mores! Session Three: The Sea World (July 10-21) Camp Fee $480 有趣的海洋世界 Investigate the undersea mystery world of some interesting and wonderful marine animals. We will lead students to understand our environment and how it interacts with the marine life. We discuss about various important environmental issues. Campers will spend 10 days immersed in marine habitats with a variety of hands-on activities that introduce them to some marine organisms and involve them in learning to care for our coasts and ocean. There will be a sand party at the beach and lots of exploring and fun! Session Four: Iron Chef Jr. China (July 24-August 4) Camp Fee $510 我是一名小厨师 This session offers campers a chance to learn how to cook Asian dishes in this exciting, interactive hands-on cooking class. Students will craft delectable delicacies inspired by cultures and cuisines around the world. We will focus on vocabulary related to different healthy foods, ingredients, methods of cooking, and learning to write recipes in detail. In addition to cooking healthy, we will also discuss how eating healthy and exercising affect our bodies. We have it all covered in this session! Campers will take home culinary creations. Each day they will create a tempting new recipe for you to enjoy! We will also visit a dim sum restaurant to taste the wide variety of traditional Chinese food while practicing their Mandarin language skills. Session Five: Learn Through Movies (August 7-18) Camp Fee $480 看电影学中文 If you find reading Chinese books challenging at times, or if you want to learn Chinese language and culture interactively, or if you want to make a movie of your own, there’s nothing better than learning Chinese through movies and film! Join us in this session as we watch fun movies, learn Mandarin, and make a movie of our own. Students will get to learn to use Chinese in ‘real’ situations outside the classroom, particularly interactive language. These films will also expose students to experience natural expressions and flow of speech. We will learn vocabulary in the context of these movies and practice our conversational skills. In this camp, we will use movies as a motivator and make the language learning process more expressive, entertaining and enjoyable!
