2016 Chinese Culture Summer Program

Our Mission

To promote Chinese language and culture in our community through interactive educational programs.

Our Objectives 
Our summer program is specially designed for students from K to 11th grades. The program empowers campers to develop independence, self-esteem and life-long friendships. They will be exposed not only to Chinese language and culture, but also a variety of activities ranging from science, math, drawing, dance, calligraphy, abacus, Chinese Gongfu, Chinese craft, games, and sports. We have also added English writing class and SAT/ACT prep classes this year to meet the needs of higher grade students.

Classes 

� Chinese Language 

Three different level of Chinese language classes will be offered. 
Level 1 (Age 5 � Age 7), Beginner level. This level of class is for students who have no Chinese learning experience 
Level 2 (Age 8 � Age 10), Intermediate Level. This level of class is for students who have 4 years or more Chinese learning experience
Level 3 (Age 11 � Age 17), Advanced Level. This level of class is for students who have 6 years or more Chinese learning experience and want to know more Chinese cultures. 

� Chinese Yo-yo
Chinese Yo-yo is a toy from China consisting of two equally sized discs connected by a long axle. An alternating lifting and dropping motion is achieved using two sticks, each held in one hand, to keep the Yo-yo spinning on a string between the sticks. 

� Calligraphy
The word �Calligraphy� is originally a Greek word meaning �beautiful writing.� In China, however, calligraphy is regarded as an art form itself and is admired and displayed in museums just as paintings are. Chinese Calligraphy is a form of calligraphy widely practiced in China and revered in Chinese cultural sphere. 

� Abacus
Abacus, also called a counting frame, is a calculating tool that was used in old times before the adoption of the written modern numeral system. 

� Origami
Origami is the art of paper folding, which is often associated with Chinese culture. The goal is to transform a flat sheet square of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques. 

� Chinese Chess
Chinese Chess, also called Xiangqi, is a strategy board game for two players. It is one of the most popular board games in China.
