On Aug. 7 through 11, The Lippman School will provide a unique opportunity for Chinese and American students in fourth to sixth grades to explore academic themes related to American history, culture, arts and the environment at its Cultural Immersion Camp, located on the school’s campus, 750 White Pond Dr.
This is the second summer Lippman has offered this camp through a growing partnership with the Dali Experimental School in Guangdong Province, China.
The Cultural Immersion Camp is a hands-on learning experience with instruction from teachers from The Lippman School and Chief Dull Knife College, which is located on the Northern Cheyenne reservation in Montana. Each morning, campers take part in interactive classes steeped in American History and Northern Cheyenne/Plains Indians culture. Afternoons will be spent with recreational activities like swimming, hiking and biking at the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The camp runs 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
Lippman Head of School Sam Chestnut said, “Students who have the opportunity to live, learn and interact with peers from other countries and cultures will be well-prepared for a future in today’s globally interconnected world. Students will learn about the culture, customs and people from a country playing an increasingly important role in American business, political and economic affairs.”
For Chinese students, Chestnut said, the Cultural Immersion Camp will be a “great opportunity to learn and practice English, learn about American culture and share their Chinese culture with our community.” Campers will gain valuable new insights into American history and culture, have a great time and make new friends.
The cost for the day camp is $250 (for American students) and includes all classes weekday camp activities, lunch and snacks. The camp can accommodate up to 25 Chinese students and 25 American students.
