Cross Cultural Exchange Camps

Camps in the U.S.

Middle & High School students at BCC's partner schools in China experience American culture & language during their Chinese New Year/Spring Festival break at the end of January into mid-February.

 

Students interested in studying at one of BCC’s partner high schools in the U.S. for their junior and/or senior years should participate in this specialized program.  BCC partner high schools & colleges operate the program; students stay with host families and/or in nearby college dormitories.

Camps in China

Students enrolled in middle & high schools in the U.S. interested in experiencing China through the lens of a native Chinese student should participate in a cultural and language camp in the spring.  The experience is optimal for those who are studying Mandarin Chinese; prior to the excursion, local U.S. students learn about the places they will visit in China, & create friendships with students in BCC’s partner schools.
