Chiang Mai American independence day half day camp for Kids
A Unique American Half-Day Camp for Kids
This Half-Day camp is a bit of a hybrid. From 1-5pm students learn about American music, culture, and history. From 5pm – 6pm, parents are invited to enjoy a simple BBQ with their family and watch their children compete in American style games and sing American songs. BBQ dinner is nothing fancy, just hotdogs, fruit, and coleslaw.
This camp will be managed in English by both American and local Thai educators. Translation will be provided for Thai students if necessary.
4 – 12 Years Old
Children participating in the camp will be split into groups based upon their age. All students will play (a lot), learn some American songs, culture, and history – age appropriate of course from 1pm – 5pm.
Student Performances and Production!
At 5pm, when parents arrive back at the school, students will perform the music they learned throughout the day (American songs), and play American sports with their new friends. Parents will be asked to both watch and play as well!
