SUMMER CAMP 2020
2020 SUMMER CAMP WEEKS
Week 1 (July 6-10) is the week of “Animals Big and Small”:
This week, we will learn about all the wonderful creatures big and small that share our planet earth. We will have fun with animal puppetry and role playing, do various animal arts and craft, learn fun and silly “animal dance routines” in our dance studio on-site, hear many animal stories, and learn songs about animals in the Chinese language!
Week 2 (July 13-17) is the week of “Under the Sea”:
This week, we will dive deep into the big blue ocean and learn about all the strange but beautiful creatures who live under the sea. We’ll learn the names and habits of the fishes, crustaceans, and even mermaids (gasp!) Lots of fun arts and crafts projects and stories about the ocean creatures. A special highlight for this week is the introduction of a real fish tank with wonderful fishes and corals in class. Children will get to interact with the fishes and get up close to them all week! It’s a blast.
Week 3 (July 20-24) is the week of “Mulan and the art of Kung Fu”:
This week, we will dwell in the world of Hua Mulan, a legendary fictional character made famous in non-Chinese countries by Disney’s 1998 movie Mulan. Its live action remake by Disney will be launched later in 2020. Let’s celebrate the world of Mulan with stories, and an energizing week of Kung Fu fighting lessons. There will be a special king fu training session by none other than Hua Mulan herself!
Week 4 (July 27-31) is the week of “Journey to the West and Sun WuKong the Monkey King”:
This week is all about one of the greatest Chinese classic literature of all times – Journey to the West. Written during the Ming dynasty (16th century) by Wu Cheng’en, this beloved Chinese tale has been told and retold through the generations, and made into countless movies and television series around the world. Campers will learn about this epic tale, and spend the week creating and performing an operatic performance worthy of this well-known Chinese classic master of a tale.
