About CCBG's Chinese Immersion Summer Camp:
Our annual Chinese Immersion Summer Camp offers a great chance for children to consolidate what they have learned during the previous academic year and to put-to-use their acquired language skills as well as to expand them.
Students will be divided into small groups of 4-5 students based on their Chinese skill levels. Mandarin is exclusively used with the more advanced groups, and Mandarin is supplemented with limited amount of English at the lower levels. Our teacher-to-student ratio will be 1:4 or 1:5. Besides our regular teachers, we will also have other Mandarin-speaking counselors from an array of fields guiding our students. Such counselors will consist of professionals (such as: scientists, artists, athletes) with the support of native Mandarin-speaking College or High School students.
Please email us at: email@example.com to schedule an interview with us or to inquire about our Regular Classes.
Summer 2017: Silkworms & The Silk Road
Our campers dived into the art of raising silkworms and the long history behind these amazing creatures. They also put together an interactive play that highlighted the major stops along the Silk Road that connect ancient China to the West.
Summer 2015: A Play About Chinese Dialects
A short synopsis of our 2015 Summer Camp.
Summer 2014: The Sign Book Project
Ever wondered what the signs say when you walk into a neighborhood that relies on a language that you don't know?
Well, our students did. This project took our students on a trip around the Chinatowns of Manhattan's Lower East Side and into Flushing, Queens. The students took pictures of local signage and reproduced these signage on paper and deciphered the meanings behind them. This book is a collection of their reproduced work and serves as a mini-guide to signage when they revisit the locations!
Summer Activity Album — Arts & Crafts
Our camp offers a variety of arts and crafts activities to enrich the learning experience for all our student, including: Chinese calligraphy, drawing, painting, model building, and sowing.
Summer Activity Album — Chinese Chess
A strategic game that our students enjoy a great deal. Similar to International Chess, but not quite, you can learn how to play from our collection of how-to videos.
Summer Activity Album — Community Studies
Our students surveyed and interviewed the local Chinese communities in NYC on various studies, brought the data back, followed by organizing and compiling the data into charts and diagrams to verify their findings.
Summer Activity Album — Performance
From the spotlight-loving to camera-shy, there is always something for any student to participate — story writing, scripting, stage designing, backstage support, and acting are some of the most popular things our students enjoy. Our program's theatre work offers the opportunity for students to learn the art of cooperation.
Summer Activity Album — Ping Pong (Table Tennis)
This low-risk sport is gaining popularity in NYC with clubs like SPIN located in midtown Manhattan. It is perhaps our students' favorite thing to do during breaks, they love the dexterity, agility and strategy required for this game.
To help our students learn or train Ping Pong, our program occasionally invite Olympic-grade professionals, such as Wang Chen, a former Chinese World Champion Team member that has also won several North American and U.S. Championships; she represented the U.S, and took 5th place for Women's Single in Table Tennis, the highest the U.S. has ever reached in this sport.
Summer Activity Album — Raising Silkworms
Students cared for the young silkworm larvae from eggs to worm, feeding them their much needed diet of mulberry leaves. Meanwhile, they learned the science behind the delicate growth process of the silkworm larvae, as well as the important lesson of empathy for all living beings, big or small.
