Join our Bilingual Mandarin/English Summer Camps​!


We are excited to announce our in-person Summer Camp programs at our Midtown Toronto location! Panda Mandarin Camps make learning Mandarin fun and experiential for children aged 4 and up. Campers will be taught in a bilingual Mandarin & English language environment while spending time with their peers through indoor and outdoor activities (eg, music, drama, art, games, dance), as well as mini excursions to parks and other locations around the neighbourhood (weather permitting). Our camps are theme-based and children will learn with their peers in Mandarin at the same time.

What your child can expect at our camps

  • Warm and caring staff who are well trained (including First Aid)

  • Bilingual English/Mandarin speaking Camp Leaders

  • Low ratios of staff to campers (1:4)

  • Staff who create a fun and engaging atmosphere

  • A clean and safe environment to learn and play

  • An inclusive and open-minded team that respects each individual child

  • Staff that are approachable and welcoming

  • An appropriate amount of Mandarin/English spoken that helps challenge a camper, but without turning them off from the language - for beginners or novices, this means Mandarin & English. For advanced/fluent students, predominantly Mandarin will be used

Check out our previous in-person camps!

Note: our camps will adhere to local health & safety regulations as required.


Our camps run at our centre located at 3217 Yonge St. in the Yonge & Lawrence area, easily accessible via transit & car. This location is exclusively Panda Mandarin's space with a fully updated interior and HVAC system to ensure a clean & bright space. We may also augment the camp experience through local outdoor play spaces and indoor gym space for inclement weather.

Age & Skill Levels

Our camp is designed for 4-12 year olds. We tailor and group activities by age and skill so your child will have consistent exposure to Mandarin appropriate to their level. We may also group children by the following ages where appropriate - 4-5 years, 6-8 years, 9 years and older. For language skill level, we divide students into beginner/intermediate/advanced, and for each level, teachers will use as much Mandarin as possible so that students can understand but still be challenged.

Summer Camp Fees & Discounts


For Summer Camp, you can book by individual weeks or by theme (Chinese Culture Combo or Reading & Writing Power Pack) for greater savings. While some themes will be familiar to those campers who were with us last summer, there will be a lot of new and fun activities, no matter which week you join. Themes are subject to change without notice.

Also new for this year are the Reading & Writing Bootcamp weeks at the end of August, focused on helping those 6 years and older to level-up their reading & writing with a more intensive "bootcamp" while still keeping things fun!

We offer a Sibling Discount of 5% that applies for each subsequent camper. Lunar New Year, Early-Bird, and Sibling discounts can be combined. Other discounts cannot be combined.
