Rock Academy Winter Immersion Camp 2017

On January 23rd, 2017, six students from China and Japan started their first day of study in an American school.  Some of them have been to the US before, but for some of them, this is their first time traveling by themselves. We are all so impressed by how independent and how brave they are! Their unforgettable journey starts now…

The Lunar New Year is the biggest holiday and celebration in China, and it happened to be on January 27th when the students were in San Diego.  Although students were not able to celebrate with their native families, they got to share the New Year traditions with the school.  On Lunar New Year’s eve, students gathered and watched the Chinese New Year’s Gala show.

Besides experiencing studying in an American school, students also got to explore San Diego with us and with their host families.  During the two weekends they were here, we went to almost every attraction in San Diego: Downtown San Diego, USS Midway Museum, San Diego Zoo, Belmont Park, Balboa Park, and SeaWorld.  The students had many of their firsts with their host families, such as trying new food and mini golf!
