Chinese Bridge Summer Camp
The Confucius Institute at University of North Florida (“CI at UNF”) will offer a 2017 Chinese Bridge Summer Camp for American high school students and college students around mid-June next year (Thursday, June 15, 2017). The Chinese Bridge Summer Camp for U.S. High School Students and college students is an annual Chinese language and culture camp experience sponsored by the Confucius Institute Headquarters in cooperation with Confucius Institute at the University of North Florida, and Shaanxi Normal University. This two-week program is structured to enhance understanding between American and Chinese students. Through a combination of classroom study and excursions, students have a unique opportunity to expand their language skills while experiencing China’s rich culture and history on a personal level.
Chinese Bridge Summer Camp activities include, but are not limited to:
- Brush painting
- Chinese language
- Culture classes
- Chinese music & arts appreciation workshops, etc.
- Visits to Chinese cultural landmarks, historical sites, and museums in Xi’an and Beijing
Confucius Institute Headquarters and Shaanxi Normal University will cover expenses in China including food, accommodation, visits, tours and group activities. The cost is around $2,200. Students will be responsible for international travel fees, international insurance, visa application fees, and any unforeseen expenditures.
Participants must be registered through the Confucius Institute at UNF aged 15-30, who have studied Chinese for no more than 3 years, and have not participated in a visit organized by Headquarters before. They must be an American Citizen (has a US passport), have an interest in Chinese language and culture, be healthy enough for travel, and be willing to participate in all camp activities.
