The Chinese Adopted Siblings Program for Youth, also known as CASPY, is a biannual cultural event held on Yale campus. Directed towards families with adopted Chinese children, it seeks to educate and inform both parents and children about the Chinese culture in a fun and relaxed setting. Parents are invited to participate in a series of workshops while children are paired off with a Yale undergraduate Big Sib. The children spend the day with their Big Sib engaging in arts and crafts, workshops, and other fun games designed to teach them about their rich Chinese heritage.
In the past, activities have ranged from lantern-making to face-painting, calligraphy to learning how to play the Chinese yo-yo, watching puppet shows to enjoying tasty Chinese snacks and drinks. Every year sees the return of a few traditional favorites as well as new and exciting activities.
