This language and culture camp focuses on fostering language acquisition, intercultural understanding, and a desire for international travel. During the camp, students will learn basic communicative writing, reading, listening, and speaking skills in classes taught using immersion methodology. The camp will introduce students to practices and perspectives of the Arabic-speaking and Chinese-speaking world, as well as the leadership skills that will enable them to become local youth leaders with a global perspective. Students will learn through classroom activities, guest speakers, music, and field trips. The last day of the camp will feature student performances in a culminating showcase for classmates, family, and community members.
