Shu Ren's summer camps are carefully designed for all levels of Mandarin language learners in a fun and engaging environment. We offer sessions for several age groups.

PreK Mandarin Summer Camp​ (Ages 2.5 - 4 years old by session start date)

Children will learn Mandarin through engaging, immersion-based, hands-on activities. No prior Mandarin skills are needed. The language instruction will be in Mandarin with English to support beginning Mandarin learners.

K-3 Mandarin Language Summer Camp (Rising Kindergartners or ages 5-9 years old by session start date)

Campers will learn Mandarin through the lens of inquiry as they engage in hands-on activities that explore scientific discoveries, visual and performing arts, and culinary experiences from around the world. This camp is for new learners of Mandarin as well as children with a Mandarin language background who want to maintain or improve their language development. Some portions may be taught in English depending on the specialists or as appropriate for our learners.
