“Ni Hao” Wolfpack – Chinese Language and Culture Camp

“Mandarin Chinese” is one of the fastest growing languages not only in North Carolina K-12 schools but also around the world. Rising 6th through 12th graders will enjoy a Chinese language and culture camp to help them learn about a new culture and get them excited to communicate with a larger world. The Confucius Institute at NC State University has been sharing Chinese language and culture since 2007 and specializes in community programs. We have created an interactive and academic week-long summer camp that your middle school- high school aged students will enjoy. At the end of the camp, we welcome families to come to the final performance to see what students have learned. This camp’s intention is to get your child excited about a new culture or help them continue their interest in Chinese. While it is difficult to learn Chinese in one week, this camp will provide a taste of Chinese language and culture with Chinese words incorporated into all sessions of the camp.

Camp Activities

Chinese Language Class

This Chinese Language and Culture summer camp will have two levels of Mandarin Chinese language classes (simplified Chinese). The two classes are taught by professional Chinese language teachers and each level will accept a maximum of 20 students (40 students each week). This camp is to provide a “taste” of Chinese language and culture so that language and culture are learned and experienced simultaneously.

Chinese Culture Classes

The best way to learn a language is to also learn and experience culture at the same time. Each day, the students will be exposed to different aspects of Chinese culture including art and physical activity each day.  We will have two field trips.

  • Chinese Calligraphy
  • Chinese Brush Painting
  • Traditional Chinese Paper-Cutting
  • Taichi
  • Traditional Chinese Dance
Field Trips

Transportation will be provided by NC State Fleet Services and certified driver.


With camp fees, students will have lunch at the NC State cafeteria and will have some Chinese snacks. One day we will take a field trip to the Grand Asia Market for students to see an Asian Grocery Store and students will be able to purchase their own lunch (students will need $10- $15 to buy a boxed lunch). If students have dietary needs that can be expressed on the online registration.
