Cultural Exchange Goes Beyond the Classroom

Prepare for Summer 2018!

Over the past few years, Sky Kids has hosted over 100 students from China, Taiwan, Mexico, Japan, and Italy.

Many stayed for 2 weeks or more, with host families or with their own, and were truly able to experience the San Francisco Bay Area and the American way of life.

Our foreign and local students have had a blast over the past summers so we look forward to welcoming even more international students to Sky Kids this year. 


Be a Host Family

Is your family interested to host campers from abroad? This is a exciting and enriching opportunity for children from different cultural backgrounds to learn from each other on and/or off campus. 

If you are interested to host, please fill out our application form. Host families will get free Standard Camp weeks for every child and week hosted. Complimentary camp weeks should be booked for the same weeks as the child(ren) being hosted and do not apply to Mandarin Camps.

 

Host Family Role & Responsibilities

  • Our international students are generally between the ages of 9 and 14 and come from China and Taiwan. In addition to camp activities, homestay is a great way for them to experience American life and to practice speaking English as many of these kids will eventually head to the US for their high school or college education;

  • Host families with children are preferred. Host families are also encouraged to enroll their children in the same camp week(s) as their visiting students;

  • Host family responsibilities include providing each student with his/her own bed, handling pickup/drop-off at airport (Sun/Sat), drop-off/pickup at Camp (Mon-Fri), providing all meals except for camp lunch, including the student in your family's weekday and weekend activities, taking time out to communicate with them in English, and helping them acclimate to American life.


Learning together

Exchange Program

The Sky Kids Summer Camps will prepare kids for an incredible cultural experience, not only at home but also abroad. 

"Sky Kids" will have the chance to visit China, practice Mandarin and experience Chinese culture first-hand. 

Please indicate your interest for this potential cross-border trip when you register for Summer 2018. Trip dates TBD.
