Hmong Culture Camp, Inc. Summary
Hmong Culture Camp is an early learning dual-language program that aims to ensure children ages 0-5 receive optimal learning through talking, reading, and singing. Our camps unite families to create a cultural shift in the Hmong and mainstream community throughout Merced County by ensuring that all children in this age group receive maximum exposure to evidence-based activities for brain development and dual language acquisition.
Hmong Culture Camp is a two-pronged program that provides youth ages 16-25 the opportunity to receive hands-on experience with early education, dual-language training, and mentorship with children aged 0-5 years. Our youth are encouraged to participate in civic engagement and community outreach opportunities to spread cultural awareness in all available spaces.

Interns assist with Hmong Culture Camp’s daily operations and receive hands-on work readiness experience with community planning, volunteer management, marketing and recruitment, lesson planning, engaging families, and teaching in a classroom setting.
