Fun Time at Summer Camp

Fun Time at Summer Camp

Every week, the activities at summer camp are different to keep things interesting for kids who are doing multiple weeks. In-class lessons are usually kept structurally the same, but with changing topics every day. At some points during camp, we would ask the students to write a journal of their day/week at camp. Here is the feedback from some students.

“My teacher, Li laoshi, took me to a very cool restaurant that I don’t know the name of. I had beef, duck, seaweed, tofu, and noodles. She is a very fun teacher and I’m happy my parents took me to the park. Wǒ ài shuìjiào hé lā xiǎotíqín. Wǒ ài bàba hé māmā.”

“Yesterday, we went to eat at a buffet like restaurant. We got beef and some other meat. It was good. We had been there once before and it was just as good.”


“Yesterday I went to the park with the students my age. We played many games such as tug-of-war, jump rope and hide-and-seek! After we left, we got ice cream! On the way back to camp, we passed a lot of interesting stuff! It was very fun! Wǒ xǐhuān fēngmì hé húdié.”

“My teachers took me to Jing’an Park where we played tug-of-war and hide-and-seek. A little boy growled at me and I threw crumbled up tree bark at him and he got scared and ran away. We also got ice cream that cost 20yuan. It was soft-serve and was way overpriced. Like I got a one-gallon bottle at the 7-11 for 7yuan. Anyway it was fun and I really liked it.”

“Yesterday we went to Jing’an Park. At the park, we played tug-of-war and hackey sack. It was really fun. We stayed there for about 2 hours and after we left, I bought 2 cones of ice cream. They cost 20 yuan each and I thought it was a little expensive.”

“I liked biking with Bobo laoshi. I biked with small Ofo bike and Bobo laoshi biked with the new Mobike. We biked for a long time. We biked on a less busy road.”
