Have your child spend their summer having fun while learning or improving a second language through two-week summer sessions! Students are grouped according to grade and language proficiency. Each two weeks is packed with fun activities that promote learning and growth, as well as some time in the great outdoors for exploration. Each session is uniquely crafted around a theme. Our groups are kept to a staff to student ratio that allows for personal instruction. All two weeks of camp are NEW with refreshed curriculum and many new activities.
Camp will run from June 9th, 2014 to August 15th, 2014. Summer Camp registration begins February 3rd!
All sessions include one exciting guest speaker or field trip for all students. They will experience performance, demonstration, Kung Fu martial arts, dance, game, craft, Chinese calligraphy, painting, cooking and more. The parents will be invited to join us for a performance put together by the students at the end of each session. Mei Jia's 2014 Summer Camp offers language immersion opportunities for students who are interested in immersing in the language and culture. The students are encouraged to fully converse in Mandarin and allowed to experience Chinese language and culture as soon as they step through the door. Our caring teachers make this experience fun, nurturing, encouraging, and so much more. Mei Jia Summer camp is a great place for your child to make new friends and to learn Mandarin as well!
