Description of Program - CURRENTLY NOT BEING OFFERED

Hills Learning is teaming with the Chess Educators to provide a unique camp experience to offer both Mandarin Chinese Immersion instruction and an interactive Chess program! Our camp uses a unique and fun experience to learn Mandarin. Kids will participate in fun, engaging activities, and they start off the day with a morning wakeup physical activity. Then in the afternoon, kids get engaged in playing Chess and learning fun and effective strategies. No other school offers such a program that develops children both physically and mentally, and of course fun!

Chinese Details Our Chinese language instruction is fun and effective. Through interactive games and activities, the students learn the basics of this incredible language. All language skills are developed, from writing and reading, to speaking and listening. We follow a textbook designed specifically for children learning Chinese.

Chess Details The chess camp provided by Chess Educators uses an interactive and hands-on approach for kids to learn chess. Chess camp activities include chess instruction and lessons, a chess lab which includes worksheets, problem solving, and more tactics. Kids will also participate in class tournament games with notation and clocks making the camp an exciting and rewarding experience.
