ExploreAsia: Culture Camp for Kids


Be the Change: Exploring Culture through Children’s Connections

ExploreAsia: Culture Camp for Kids 2016. (Asia Society Texas Center)

ExploreAsia camps are designed to engage students with Asian art, culture, and history. The first session for summer 2017 is Be the Change.

A repeat of last year’s successful camp, Be the Change nurtures students’ critical thinking skills and global awareness to explore issues affecting children in Asia. Activities are designed to empower students to interact with these problems and design solutions. Campers will also be actively engaged in researching and reflecting on challenges within the Houston area. This camp is recommended for students ages 9-13.
