China Summer Camp | Pocket Money
The program fee is all-inclusive, meaning students don’t need to pay anything at our camp. However, it does not cover personal spendings such as private outings, extra food, and drinks, shopping for souvenirs, etc. Students should bring some pocket money. A suggested amount is 100-150USD for each week of stay. If students need to do some serious shopping, a lot more.

Younger students may deposit their pocket money with counselors and withdraw money on a daily basis. The counselors will note deposits and withdrawals and keep an eye on the student’s spending habits, in order to help them budget their money. If you anticipate that your child will need additional money, it will be your responsibility to deliver the money, because we cannot receive or deliver money to students through our account.
