CHINESE IMMERSION SUMMER CAMPS
The Panda Summer Camps continue our school year Chinese Immersion preschool program in two-week summer sessions. Emphasis is on 80% Mandarin Immersion while carrying out a Reggio-inspired, play-based preschool program. Newcomers to both Peregrine and to Mandarin language are welcome, especially if they plan to enroll in Pandas or Dragons in the next school year. Chinese cultural arts and exposure to Mandarin characters are included in the program.
This program is designed for students with prior Mandarin immersion experience and also for students who are brand new to Mandarin language. The Chinese Immersion program provides an enriched, exploratory, Reggio-inspired childhood environment while immersing students in Mandarin language and Chinese cultural activities. Science, art, and beginning Mandarin literacy are included in the program.

Exploring the arts of China
Build pagodas, the Great Wall of China, and skyscrapers as a way to appreciate the many different styles of building in China from ancient to modern times. Children will use blocks, cardboard, and recycled items to construct wondrous cities, walls, and towers.
Students will make many foods from flour products like noodles and dumplings to greens that seem like weeds! They will also take field trips to the grocery store to identify Chinese ingredients and bring them back for cooking.

Upcycling is repurposing unwanted household items and turning them into something useful and beautiful; it not only educates youth about the importance of recycling and protecting our planet, but also entertains them with science and art. Let’s craft our way to upcycling using water bottles, plastic utensils, paper goods and fabric!
Trash to Treasure: Upcycling Fun
Explore math through Chinese methods. Learn how to use an abacus as a tool for life, learn numbers as Chinese characters, and work with Tangrams to make animals and other shapes.
“I notice, I wonder…in numbers”
Between Black & White I
In this course, students will learn to work with ink and water to do both calligraphy (traditional Chinese characters) and Chinese watercolor painting. Instructors will cover practicing brush strokes to make, trees, flowers, fish...etc. Students’ works will be presented to their peers and parents at the final class.
Between Black & White II
Students will continue exploring the fun of traditional Chinese calligraphy and watercolor painting with ink and water. All new learners without previous experiences are welcome. Session 3 is not a requirement for session 4. See the Session 3 description.
Through cooking, games, and field trips to the store, students will learn about food from its sources: from the production process to how it is used in our bodies. We will learn how to read labels, to choose the right food not only for taste, but for health and the environment.
