TAF Summer Conference

For over 30 years, the Taiwanese American Foundation has been proud to host the largest and longest-running summer camp for children and teens of Taiwanese descent in the US and Canada. Every summer over 250 campers get together at TAF’s flagship event for a fun-filled week of learning about themselves and their Taiwanese heritage.

The theme of the conference rotates every year between four key ingredients designed to help your child become confident individuals and grow into their fullest potential.

Whether your child is first generation, second generation, third generation, or even multiracial, TAF helps attendees explore their self-identity, a building block of developing self confidence.
