Tomorrow, our student-run schoolyard farmers’ market will welcome some very special guests from around the world for a cultural exchange.
A group of 26 students ranging from 8-14 years of age travelled to Chicago from the Shanghai United International School (SUIS) to participate in an international camp experience. Like AGC, SUIS is an International Baccalaureate school offering the Primary Years Programme, bilingual learning, and an opportunity for students to become citizens of the world through education. SUIS has partnered with the Windy City American Culture Camp, which focuses on immersion in American culture for international students.
SUIS students will visit AGC’s summer camp tomorrow to exchange cultural experiences. This incredible global exchange will consist of sharing food cooked by our incredible Chef Heriberto, playing traditional American sports together, enjoying a tour of our garden from young AGC ambassadors. The day will conclude with a cross-cultural collaboration, as AGC campers and WCAC campers co-facilitate AGC’s Schoolyard Market.
Please join us in welcoming the WCAC campers from Shanghai tomorrow. We encourage you to attend the market and share in this cultural experience. AGC and SUIS students will be selling produce, treats, and homemade crafts.
