This camp introduces Chinese culture and language to children through engaging topics and activities. In past years, camp themes have spanned major holidays such as Chinese New Year, the Lantern Festival, and the Moon Festival. Activities range from crafts, like making puzzles, lanterns, and Beijing Opera masks, to sports like kungfu and Chinese yo-yo, to traditional practices like calligraphy and tea time. The final day of camp will feature a performance by the children showcasing their new knowledge and abilities, which parents are encouraged to attend!
