Summer Camp Program

We make learning chinese fun!!! For all children and teens we offer a culture filled and exciting Chinese Summer camp!

Learning Chinese is fun!

Omeida Summer Camp is an all-inclusive 1 or 2-week program aimed at kids and teenagers from various nationalities.
It is a great opportunity to come together to learn a new language.


Studies have proved that learning a second language benefits your brain and help you see the world differently. It is also proven that younger learners can pick up a new language faster and it will flow more naturally. This will open many doors of opportunities for the child as they develop.

A good combination

In the mornings the students learn the theory of Chinese language in a small class environment. In the afternoons they all learn about the culture together. Activites range from traditional painting, cooking dumplings to going on outings to the tea plantation.


The Chinese Summer Camp course helps children to understand the Chinese culture and lifestyle, gain independence, make new friends and have an unforgettable experience! Let us show you that learning Chinese is fun!
