Our 2023 Summer Camp in Taipei was our biggest and best yet.

It was our first Summer Camp since that pesky pandemic, and boy did we have a blast.

8 weeks came and went so fast, with kids of all ages and backgrounds coming together as one to learn Mandarin with us and explore some of the finest sights, sounds and smells that Taipei has to offer.

In this post, we give you a complete rundown on what we did, what our students thought and include plenty of pictures and videos along the way.

We hope to see you join us in 2024 for more of the same 😍

LTL Summer Camp || A Brief Introduction

Our Summer Camp in Taipei welcomes children under the age of 17 from across the world to partake in a mixture of Chinese lessons, cultural activities and explorations and adventures throughout the city of Taipei.

SundayBreakfast at camp/homestayActivities in Camp or with HomestayActivities in Camp or with Homestay
Lunch between 1pm and 2pm

Due to the weather we sometimes have to switch activities around, but generally speaking we set the schedule out before the kids arrive, so you have an idea of exactly what your kids are up to.

Everything is kept up to date in a Line group (Taiwan’s answer to Whatsapp).

The Taipei Summer Camp lasts 8 weeks in total, running throughout June and July and students can partake from 1 week to the full 8.

BONUS || Students can also stay with a local Taiwanese family to enhance their Mandarin even further. We talk more about that on our Summer Camp page here.

When students arrive each Monday we go for a welcome breakfast together, so we can all break the ice and get to know other before class starts.

Our welcome breakfasts take place every Monday morning during the Summer Camp

After this… it’s onto school we go as the Chinese lessons kick off.

LTL Summer Camp || Mandarin Lessons

Every weekday our students enjoy 4 hours of Mandarin lessons with our amazing team of teachers.

These classes are kept small so your kids can learn as much as possible during this time.

Classes aren’t just sat listening to teachers either – we’ve got plenty of role plays, games, and a whole lot more planned to make sure everyone is having a good time whilst learning.

To keep the kids engaged we plan for weeks in advance.

We find kids love learning Chinese with us and we often see students come back for multiple summer camps which is great for us to see 😍

LTL Summer Camp || Lunch

After classes are all wrapped up everyone (including the teachers) are super hungry!

It’s time to go for lunch.

Each day we handpick a local restaurant which we all go to together, with some of the LTL staff attending also.

Everyday we go somewhere different, providing your kids with all the tastes of Taipei they need.

We mix it up too so the kids won’t be eating Taiwanese food 3 times a day, every day! Japanese, Korean, Thai, or even the odd Pizza or burger 😋

BONUS || All lunch in the LTL Summer Camp is included in the price of the program.

LTL Summer Camp || Afternoon Activities

Summer Camp in Taipei || Taipei Skating Arena
Going Ice Skating at Taipei Arena

Now it’s time for the real fun to begin.

We took to the streets of Taipei after lunch to give your kids a full flavour of the life and culture in Taipei.

We got up to a whole host of things including:

  • Riding the cable cars up on the Maokong Gondola
  • Visiting the famous Chiang Kai Shek Memorial
  • Ice skating at Taipei Arena
  • Discovering Longshan Temple
  • A trip to Taipei’s biggest skyscraper – Taipei 101

… and a whole lot more!

Some days we go on more educational visits as we hit up a number of the cities excellent museums, such as the National Science Museum, other days we delve into history as we take a guided tour of the Chiang Kai Shek memorial.

And other days, we just have a bit of fun as we go bowling or skating.

The key is keeping it fresh and mixing it up so the kids are never bored! And guess what, they never were!

LTL Summer Camp || Weekend Day Trips

As there are no classes on Saturday, that gives us a full day to take the kids out and about.

Making lanterns at Shifen (and setting them off into the sky) proved a hugely popular activity

Our day trips typically last from 9am to 6pm and are super popular with our students.

This year we went to:

  • Shi fen Waterfall to make our own lanterns which we set off into the sky
  • Dadaocheng and E7 play to chill, do some bowling and enjoy some pool
  • Head across the Red Line to Tamsui to get a glimpse of the coast
  • Take a tour of the National Taiwan Museum and visit the office of the President

… and a whole lot more of course!

On Sunday, we wind day and let the kids have some free time at their residence camp or homestay family.
