Host students for a 10-day summer camp!

Hosting builds international bridges and friendships, and provides you with a unique cultural experience in your own home!

Each year ILP brings groups of children (ages 8-14) from China to America for a fun filled summer camp.  Students come to practice their English and to have a fantastic cultural experience in America. We host 2 separate camps, each lasting about 10 days.

While in Utah, the participants stay with host families, take English classes and participate in fun activities in the area (hiking to Timp Cave, going to a water park, ice skating, bowling, etc.). At the end of the Utah portion of the camp, we take the students on a road trip that begins with some Utah national parks and concludes with the attractions in Southern California. We prefer if you can host for both sessions listed below, but we understand if your family is only able to host during one camp.

Students often mention to us how their host family was their favorite part of summer camp! In some cases, there is an extra opportunity to host a parent or a chaperon who will be coming with their child.  Past host families have said that hosting an adult can help make hosting the student easier, and it provides an opportunity for the host parents to make friends with a peer as well.
