SUMMER CAMP 2021
2021 SUMMER CAMP WEEKS!
Week 1 (June 21-25) 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 (June 28-July 2) 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 5-9) 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 was launched 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 kung fu training session by none other than Hua Mulan herself!
Week 4 (July 12-16) 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.
Week 5 (July 19-23) is the week of “Science and Space”:
This week, we will go to infinity and beyond! It’s full S.T.E.A.M ahead, so get ready. Join us to stimulate your child’s innate curiosity and ability to think outside the box. Campers will learn some of the concepts of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M) in exciting ways that enhance a camper's rationale thinking skills. We will journey into space to study the stars and the planets (yes, in both Mandarin and Spanish). Parents beware: We may make an astronaut out of your child!
Week 6 (July 26-30) is the week of “Fairies and Dragons”:
This is the week of magic and myths galore. Campers let their imaginations run wild as dragons romp around MandarinArts Studio all week. But fear not, we have our delightful fairies to cast a light and fend off these majestic mythical creatures! Campers will have fun in costumes, engaging in a series of mythical battles. Watch your kids acquire a whole new Chinese and Spanish vocabulary after this fun week of camp.
Week 7 (Aug 2-6) is the week of the “Super Heroes”:
This week, we will make a superhero out of your kid. Each camper will spend the week designing and creating his/her own special mask and cape, learning all basic vocabulary of these super crusaders in Chinese and Spanish. Special treat – campers might be surprised with a super hero or two during the week!
Week 8 (Aug 9-13) is the week of the “The City of Angels”:
The final week of camp is a homage to the beautiful city we all live in! Our beloved city of angels is chock full of world famous hot spots, historic cultural buildings and locales, gleaming beach communities, and wonderful trails and lookout points. We will go on a LA journey with your kids, and they will walk away with brand new appreciation of the city they live in.
