Campers will don their backpacks, gather their passports and off they will go on this classroom adventure! This is a perfect way for students to support their Mandarin language skills in a unique, fun, and stress-free full immersion environment. The children, with the support of their teachers, will take a virtual tour from within the classrooms of HWIS, gaining a dynamic understanding of life in New York City (ages 3-5) or Beijing (ages 5-7)!

HWIS Vacation Camps are not only language immersion, but cultural immersion as well. The week’s adventure allows campers the opportunity to explore New York City or Beijing in depth – including location, weather, food, attractions, interesting facts and more–all in Mandarin! Campers will engage in hands-on, multicultural activities aligned to the introduction and strengthening of the target language, creative writing, science, and mathematics skills. The camps will be taught by HWIS day school teachers Ma Laoshi and Liyan Laoshi.

The tuition for Spring Vacation Camp is $740 per student. Sibling discounts are available (only on offline registration form).
