In response requests from the Chinese community, the Engage with China team has developed three Summer Camp programs for Chinese students in their long break of 2018. Each camp is unique and will be held over a two week period between the 14th of July and the 12th of August, 2018.
Chinese parents and students alike have turned their attention to extra-curricular activities that focus on enhancing academic skills outside of but supplementary to the Chinese national curriculum. Central to their needs is communicative English language training and project-based learning delivered in an environment that has a measure of ‘fun’ included.
