2019 Hand in Hand Summer Cultural Camp!

11 March 2019 2 Comments

Join us at summer camp!

This year’s theme is “A Trip Around China,” where we will spend the week exploring the cultural significance of many well-known locations throughout China including the Great Wall, Chengdu, the Terracotta Warriors, and Beijing. There will be themed Chinese lessons, group games, dance lessons, and unique crafts each day. The camp will be held from June 4th to June 7th with a family picnic showcase on the 8th.

The last day is a fun way for the kids to show off everything they have learned and to conclude the camp! Families will be able to interact with the camp counselors and other families attending camp and see first-hand what their children have learned. There will be a dance performance of all the dances we learned throughout the week, as well as an authentic Chinese lunch provided with no additional cost.

    Good morning! I just paid for the full day camp registration on PayPal under my mother’s name, Heather McNay. I would like to register as a junior councilor and I’m 13.

    Thank you very much,

    Hey Lela, thanks for signing up! There’s not really an official signup process for junior camp counselors but we will have things for you to do when camp actually starts.
