The 2013 Taiwanese American Summer Camp Season Begins! Register Now!

Summer is just around the corner, and that means a whole new season of summer camps for the Taiwanese American community is about to begin! If you’re unfamiliar with the many Taiwanese American youth programs that host these excellent home-away-from-home camps, be sure to explore the links below. One thing you’ll consistently hear from the participants is how much an experience like this changed their lives.

For those new to the summer conference and camp scene, know that we at endorse all of the listed programs. They all have talented and committed counselors and staff with a strong sense of personal identity and leadership skills, and they are on a mission to help grade school through high school aged youth grow as individuals and as part of a strongly networked community. Many of our own staff members grew up with these camps, and some even still serve as staff or organizers today. Over the past two to three decades, we’ve seen many leaders emerge from these programs and know that more amazing folks will grow from them in the years to come.

Registration is open for all the programs, and information about each of the specific camps are now available on their websites and Facebook pages. Questions or concerns? Be sure to contact the respective conference directors.
