Help us to give children some summer fun!

Last summer, Stepping Stones ran a fun summer camp for 60 children in Huacao, Minhang District. It was so successful that the local Youth League asked us to run two camps this year, providing 120 children with safe, fun day care while their parents have to work.

Now we are looking for warm-hearted people to bring entertaining and educational programs to those children. Whether you are an experienced dance teacher, a children’s book company or a volunteer with a passion for teaching arts and crafts to children, please get in touch! We need volunteers and professionals to teach English, computer skills, arts & crafts, reading, drama, life skills and environmental classes to children, as well as martial arts, sports, dance, music, and other fun things that we haven’t even dreamed of yet!    

The camps will run Monday to Friday between 2nd July and 24th August, starting at 8.30am and finishing at 4.30pm. 

If you have any resources to offer our summer camps, please e-mail  If you would like to volunteer some time to help teach the children, please sign up here.  Volunteers will need to speak Chinese, apart from the ones who will teach English, and be able to teach at least once a week for the whole month of July or August. It takes around 20 minutes by cab to reach the camps from Hongqiao International Airport metro station, and volunteers will be reimbursed for the transport cost.

This summer camp program is additional to all our English teaching programs in other locations all around Shanghai and in rural areas during the summer.  Please follow the link to learn about all our summer volunteering opportunities.
