CCBG's Summer Program CHINA:

Each of our China Summer Program takes our students and participating families to a few selected cities in China (cities are selected based on the theme for that year).

Along the way, we serve as your guide as we experience China like a local, whether it be watching a magic show at a night market, eat the thickest noodles in China, climb one of the most beautiful mountains of China, chat with Chinese families, witness rare local communities, or to hear from self-made Chinese entrepreneurs who will share their stories with you. And most importantly, we will guide our students as they experience the most authentic situation to practice their Chinese language. 


Interested? For more details and/or questions:

Please inquire with one of our staff, email or call us.
