YHIS Summer Camp, the only Chinese immersion and cultural camp in the greater Princeton area, offers a unique opportunity for young learners to acquire and use Mandarin Chinese effectively and to obtain an understanding of authentic Chinese culture. All campers interact daily with native Chinese speakers with a myriad of talents. Past campers left with an impressive level of understanding of the language and intense interest in the culture.
In summer 2017, we will offer programs specially designed for four age groups: ages 2.5-3.5, 4-6, 7-9, and 10 & up. No prior knowledge of Chinese is necessary. Each program is up to eight weeks long, from June 26 to August 18. Campers should plan to attend at least two consecutive weeks under the same theme to fully benefit from the immersion nature of the program.
