Description:

The Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies (CEAPS), in collaboration with the Confucius Institute at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, is pleased to offer a two-week summer Mandarin language camp for high school students from July 17–28, 2017.

Students will learn the basics of Mandarin language conversation, writing, and reading, with a focus on functional conversation. Students will also learn about Chinese history, culture, and art.

The 2017 Mandarin Summer Camp will be run as a day camp, with students attending from 9:30 – 1:30 most days. Lunch will NOT be provided for most days, but students will be given a break with snacks in the late morning.

Students and their families are responsible for transportation to and from the camp. Students and their families are responsible for their own lodging during the camp. The camp will conclude with a lunch program for students and their families at which the students will demonstrate what they have learned.

The camp will be led by instructors who are experienced in Mandarin language instruction with supervision from faculty from the College of Education. 

The 2017 Mandarin Language Camp is co-sponsored by the Confucius Institute at the University of Illinois and funded in part by the US Department of Education Title VI grant. 

Who Should Attend

The camp is intended for students who are preparing to enter grades 9-12 for the 2017-2018 school year and who have had no prior experience with Mandarin language instruction. 

Registration & Cost

The language camp is offered free of charge for all participants. 

Application deadline is June 23, 2017.

All applicants will be required to submit a brief essay of interest and a recommendation letter, both of which will be used to determine acceptance into the program.

In order to give the opportunity for individual attention in instruction, class size will be limited to 15 students. 

Applicants will be notified of their acceptance by July 3rd.

This program does NOT grant university credit.
