Beyond the Postcard, the trip of a lifetime starts right here in Charlotte this Summer!
A Cross Cultural Focus
Charlotte Day Camp was founded with a focus on cross-cultural exploration and learning to think beyond our immediate surroundings. This philosophy remains at the core of our camp program. We are hosting our 2017 camp in partnership with the Midwood International Cultural Center, which houses the International House of Charlotte, to help with the vision of creating a hub of cultural and international activity.
Global Awareness Interdisciplinary Theme
The Partnership for 21st Century Education has identified Global Awareness and Cross-cultural competency as a key interdisciplinary theme that students must master to succeed in work, life, and citizenship.
What exactly does it mean to be globally aware? See some of our Cultural Explorer program objectives:
Using 21st century skills (our 4 Cs + Leadership) to understand and address global issues
Learning from and working collaboratively with individuals representing diverse cultures, religions, and lifestyles in a spirit of mutual respect and curiosity
Understanding other nations and cultures, including the use of non-English languages
What cultures and countries are we exploring? We're glad you asked!
