National Taichung University of Education
Children’s Chinese Summer Camp
This appears to be the only program located in Taichung. There are 2, 4 and 6 week sessions for children ages 7-12.
This is the only camp based program. I have read a few online reviews of the camp and frankly – I would like to go! Here is a description from their website: 24/7 Chinese Language: For Mandarin Camp, Camp Taiwan is conducted entirely in Chinese. Campers will sing songs, learn activities and play games – all in Chinese. Great for Chinese learners and for native speakers who want the Camp Taiwan experience, but whose English isn’t quite good enough for our traditional summer camp.
Chinese and Taiwanese Cultural Activities: Campers will learn about Chinese and Taiwanese culture through crafts, games and song. Forty-five minutes from Taipei, Camp Taiwan is nestled on 80 acres on the North Coast of Taiwan in the foothills between Jin Shan and Wan Li.
This is a Taipei based camp for 8-15 year olds. It is suggested that students stay with family or friends. This camp is classroom based. There is an extensive Q&A at the web link. Please check it out if you are interested in this option.
Tuition: $1450 USD / 43500NT
This is a Taipei camp for 6-9 Year olds.
Session 1：June 22 ~ July 10, 2015
Session 2：July 13 ~ July 31, 2015
Session 3：July 27~ August 14, 2015
Another Taipei based camp. Click 01_2015 Mandarin Summer Camp(English) to download the brochure. There are too many options to list.
Another Taipei based camp. Three sessions with full and half day courses for children ages 6-15.
This is not a Mandarin Camp, but it is a summer camp and weekend camp for teens in Taiwan. Check out their website for details.
