The New England Chinese Youth Summer Camp (NECYSC) is a bilingual program started in 1986. It combines cultural, educational, and fun experiences for campers.
NECYSC is a non-profit group, affiliated with the Greater Boston Chinese Cultural Association (GBCCA), whose goal is to bring youth together who are interested in Chinese culture and foster a sense of community. NECYSC campers will enjoy a fun filled week with their friends while learning about Chinese culture.
We have teachers in martial arts, Chinese dancing, arts and crafts, and Chinese painting from the local area. Sponsors in Taiwan also provide specially selected teachers to join our camp staff. Each camper is assigned to a group led by counselors that they spend the day with. The schedule is selected to be a mix of cultural and entertaining experiences.
The camp has been held at Regis College in Weston, MA for over thirty-two years. This beautiful enclosed campus offers complete facilities and a safe environment for campers to come reunite and meet new friends. A professional medical team with a doctor and two registered nurses will be available on campus to providemedical assistance. The camp offers Day (8-10 yrs old), Overnight (10-14 yrs old), and Exploasian (14-18 yrs old) programs. Registration for Camp 2018 is currently open. Visit www.necysc.org to learn more.
