Through our host family program you will make new friends, learn more about an exciting culture,
and take part in various social and recreational activities. Host families also support a valuable
exchange opportunity, bringing fresh perspectives and inspiration to local youth.
Over 1,700 Chinese students and teachers have traveled to Eugene and participated in past camps. We encourage you to

Music & English Camp participants come from top-tier Chinese middle and high schools.
DO THE STUDENTS SPEAK ENGLISH? Yes. Naturally, student English levels will vary, but most have no difficulty communicating.
WHO CAN APPLY TO HOST? Any household consisting of two or more persons related by blood, legal adoption or marriage may apply to host. At least one family member must be 25+ years old. At least one adult family member must be a native English speaker.
Previous host families have come in many shapes and sizes: single parents, families with teens, those with no children, young children, empty nesters, and grandparents. There is no such thing as a “typical” host family.
HOW MANY STUDENTS MAY I HOST? Up to three (3).
WHAT DO I PROVIDE FOR STUDENTS?
Bed -- Students must have their own bed. They may share a room with a host sibling of the same gender, age 13 years or older. No air beds, mattresses on the floor, or sleeping bags, please.
Food -- Breakfast & dinner weekdays. Three meals daily on the weekend. Occasional sack lunch.
Transportation -- Most families drop off and pick up their student. However, GPY also coordinates carpools for families.
Entertainment & Activities -- We encourage you to include your student in all family activities such as concerts, movies,
ball games, birthday parties, etc.
Hospitality -- Students will appreciate your warm hospitality and genuine enthusiasm.
Host families spend time with students in the evenings and on the weekend. Students will be at camp from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm weekdays. Arrangements may be made for earlier drop off or later pick up times. You will receive a finalized schedule prior to student arrival.
WHERE DO I DROP OFF & PICK UP? On most days, you will drop off and pick up at the University of Oregon. Other locations
may include local schools or community centers. Prior to student arrival, you will receive a
map and clear written directions to all drop off and pick up locations.
EXPENSES A stipend is offered to cover meals (e.g. at a restaurant with your family), transportation,
laundry and activities (e.g. movie ticket). This means that you should not need to pay out of pocket
to host a student. In addition, students will come with their own spending money for personal expenses
(e.g. international phone card, snacks, etc). Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
for more details.
Families may also voluntarily choose to donate all or part of their stipend to
one or more of our non-profit partners.
The number of days may vary slightly due to travel arrangements; stipend will be prorated accordingly.
