Golden Monkey Summer Camp

jīn sī hóu xià lìng yíng


At Mandarin Tots, we believe in the importance of introducing children to the traditional rich cultures of China in the most fun and relatable ways and keeping these cultures alive in the hearts of our children who are growing up so fast in this modern world. It is in this spirit our Golden Monkey Summer Camp was created.


Each week, we learn about a specific aspect of China’s unique cultures through the exploration of language, literature, art, and crafts. We also learn to recite a famous poem from the Tang Dynasty every single day. Our little golden monkeys will not only become the most studious scholars but also run wild and happy playing our favorite Chinese traditional children’s outdoor games such as Chinese Yo-Yo, jump rope, shuttlecock, eagle catch chicks, hide the handkerchief and even ping pong all while learning Mandarin without even realizing it!

Our Summer Camp 2024 runs from July 8th through August 23rd in both Centra Park and Prospect Park. You can register by the week and daily camp hours are 9am-12pm. Cost is $450 per week. If you're interested in registering, please fill out the application.
