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.

Summer 2018: Journey To The West
Following the spirit of our 2017 Silk Road theme, our campers studied tales and adventures from the famous Chinese classic —Journey to the West—which depicts the real-life journey of the Tang Monk (with some added magical elements) traveling westward in search of enlightenment and knowledge from the Buddhist scrolls. A few chosen stories were made into plays, supported by the wonderful performances of our campers and their creative props and backgrounds.
For an in-depth look into this year’s camp, we welcome you to read our essay.
