Mandarin Immersion Summer Camp

IMG_8816

Overview​

Summer is a great time to give language learning a try in a relaxed environment. LeapUp Learning Mandarin immersion summer camp combines engaging lessons with the wonders of art, music, science, and culture all in a lively Chinese immersion environment. 

The theme of this year is based on the Lunisolar calendar. The Lunisolar calendar (二十四节气), also called The “Twenty-Four Solar Terms” is an ancient calendar that not only tracks the sun but also the moon and its phases. It is traditionally used by the Chinese to track farming seasons and celebrate cultural festivals.

This summer at LeapUp, students will be introduced to this astronomical phenomenon in a creative and engaging way. They will discover the relationship between humans and nature while learning Chinese language, geography, history, culture and traditions through hands-on activities, art projects, science experiments and more. This Mandarin Chinese Immersion Camp is designed and tailored for different age groups ranging from 4-12, and suitable for students of all language proficiency levels.

Our Team

Our lead teachers are native Chinese speakers with NY Teacher’s Certificates of Teaching Chinese as a Second Language or Early Childhood Education as well as extensive teaching experience in the field. Along with our carefully selected and energetic young camp counselors, our team will bring your children a fun and enriching summer experience.
