(July 7, 2014) -- UTSA offers an array of activities as San Antonio's summer camp destination. More than 8,500 students will participate in 23 camps in June and July. This week in the Japanese Language and Culture Camp, campers from ages 8 to 13 will learn about the language, culture, customs, art, crafts, music, cooking and more.
Sponsored by the UTSA East Asia Institute, young students will be involved in numerous hands-on activities including learning basic Japanese greetings, decoding and writing simple words in the two writing systems, food, Japanese geography, holidays, the educational system, calligraphy and ink-wash painting, bonsai gardening, the Japanese calendar and games.
Camps and academies throughout the summer include science, engineering, archaeology, architecture, sports, law, music, writing and language for children and teens. Campers expand their horizons through hands-on activities and open their minds to educational opportunities. For many, it is their first experience at a top-quality institution of higher education.
Through August, UTSA Athletics is hosting camps in baseball, basketball, soccer and softball to help youth develop their skills through practice and friendly competition in a fun and challenging environment.
