Asia Society Texas Center’s ExploreAsia summer camps return for the third year! The camps invite young students to engage with Asian culture, food, games, languages, and performing and visual arts.

Our first session for Summer 2015, Asian Dynasties and Empires, will feature stunning art projects and performances as in past years and new exciting additions for this year include the following:

  • Create your own journey of historic Asia, based on iconic explorers such as Ibn Battuta, James Cook, Zheng He, and Marco Polo
  • Heritage project in celebration of the exhibition The Other Side: Chinese and Mexican Immigration to America
  • Voyage to America performance and workshop with Revels Houston
  • And of course…Asian food!

Children ages 6-12 are welcome to attend ExploreAsia summer camps. Each session can accommodate 30 campers, so please register early to guarantee a spot! Registration includes a camp t-shirt, all supplies, and a snack for the end-of-camp celebration.
