It’s getting to be that time of year, when parents’ thoughts turn to summer programs.

For those in the San Francisco Bay area, one option is SkyKids, a long-running Mandarin immersion summer day camp that will be based near San Francisco’s  Japantown this year:

Last year SkyKids began a summer program in Taiwan as well, in New Taipei City.

Note that both of these programs are day camps, so you’ve got to have a parent or friend with whom your kids can stay.

Last year in Taipei the campers were mostly from other Asian countries, including many American ex-pats, with families coming from Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and of course Taiwan.

So if you can relocate to Taipei for a few weeks this summer, it might be a camp for you.

[Disclaimer: My daughter and two of her classmates from Starr King Elementary grade school in San Francisco, all now in high school, were junior counselors in the Taipei program last year. Many of the junior counselors in San Francisco are Mandarin immersion high school students.]
