What we're about

Parent-run club for all families (with children ages 6-18 years old) based in Southern California who enjoy going to places or doing stuff together, regardless of school choice - world-school, traditional public/private, home-school, un-school, etc.

We "school" in 4-terms of 10-weeks each between January-May and July-November. We “break” for 1-week in March and September, and for 3-weeks of June and December.

Our adventures are (1) FUN and (2) related to one or more of the following disciplines: STEMMM - that's Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Music, & Mandarin!

We are an active community of diverse and inclusive families. Many of our adventures have minimum age requirements (averaging 8-years old) as these are academic/educational programs.

If your oldest child is not 6-years old by 09/01/2018, please find us when he/she has...whether in 2019 or later.

There are no Mandarin language requirements to join. Rather, a Mandarin is someone who is an educated intellectual of the Ming & Qing Dynasty....or the nemesis of IronMan for the STEM-geeks.

Please use a real photo of yourself (the adult human with no sunglasses so we can recognize each other in real life) and answer the questions as listed. We are community-funded to shore up a reserve for a plethora of adventures. Dues are required within 30-days of original join-date.

Every Mandarin Social Adventurer is also required to attend one (1) adventure within the first 60-days of join-date. If you are unable to do so, please feel free to opt-out and be an observer/browser at http://www.facebook.com/MandarinSocialAdventurers.

Nothing is certain in life, except for death and taxes. No hard feelings if you choose to opt-out/leave anytime.
