Crocodile Mandarin School
Who knew Mandarin learning could be so fun?
What is it?
The new Crocodile Mandarin Summer Day Camp is a week-long day camp program. The camp runs Monday to Friday from 8:45 am to 3:00 pm. It features an interdisciplinary approach to Mandarin learning with our original Crocodile Mandarin lessons sandwiched between activities like yoga, dance/movement, art, cooking, and natural science projects. These subjects are all presented in an immersion format.
Good news for working parents! All Crocodile Camps are now full day. That means more exposure for kids and fewer issues with picking up and dropping off for parents. The year 2018 marks the first time we have offered full-day camps on a weekly basis throughout the summer.The best parts of our previous summer programs--the Mandarin Rainbow and the Summer Intensive Class--have now been combined into this new activity-packed program.
Best of all: The fees you pay for the camp--because they qualify as childcare expenses--will likely be tax-deductable.
What ages are best for the camp?
The camp is offered for two different age groups 4-6 and 7-12.
What language abilities are needed?
For most camps, no prior Mandarin experience is needed. For kids who are not beginners, a special advanced-level camp is offered.
Can my child attend a half day?
Yes, requests for half day programs are accepted and will be fulfilled on a space-available basis. Full day registrations will take priority and half-day requests cannot be confirmed until one-week before camp begins.
Locations: North Van Learning Centre and the Scottish Cultural Centre in Vancouver.

Crocodile Mandarin Summer Day Camp
Who is it for?
The new Crocodile Mandarin Summer Day Camp is perfect for parents who have wished to increase their child’s exposure to Mandarin beyond what is offered by our regular one- or two-hour per week program. The program will supercharge your child’s Mandarin with fun, healthy activities. It packs 30 hours of language exposure into a single week.
Because it includes so much movement through yoga and dance, the program is also great for health-conscious parents who feel their child’s summer breaks involve too many sedentary activities, too much television, too much computer, or too many video games.
