As summer approaches, many parents will be planning trips to Taiwan for their children. Children are energetic and frequently challenging to supervise. Many parents may want to enroll their children in summer programs to keep them engaged while also improving their Mandarin and learning about Taiwanese culture.

Given the vast quantity of schools in Taipei, selecting the ideal summer camp for your children may be difficult. While some parents want their children to study Chinese while having fun, others would like the summer camp to focus more on the instruction of Mandarin in a classroom setting.There are also some parents who prefer to offer their kids a rudimentary introduction
to the language rather than a more thorough one since they don’t want their kids to become discouraged. No single summer camp is perfect for every child; it all depends on what you’re looking for at this point in your child’s development.

In this article, we aim to suggest a selection of mandarin summer camps for kids and teenagers that fall into a number of different categories. It should be possible for every parent here to find a summer camp that meets the needs of their children.

Also, parents looking for apartment-style suits near summer camps can refer to the「Taiwan Monthly Hotel Selection」. The list includes 46 budget-friendly monthly hotels in Taiwan with Long Stay Deals.

    Kids in Europe and in North America often spend parts of their holidays in summer camps far away from their parents. They enjoy a great adventure in nature, become independent from their parents, find friends for life and have a lot of fun.

Additional trips to Wuling Pass (3.275 m), Shrmen Mountain, Wushe Village, Qingjing Farm and Aowanda Park with its long suspension bridge show them the beautiful nature of Taiwan. They will learn something about the rainbow warriors of Taiwan.
