Carlisle School hosted a summer camp for visiting students and faculty from Shijiazhuang No. 1 High School in China. A group of 27 students and three adult leaders stayed with nine host families in the Martinsville-Henry County area for one week during their tour of the Mid-Atlantic United States, which also included Washington D.C., and New York City. This is the second time that Carlisle has hosted an international summer camp. Each day these students participated in interactive sessions on campus, which included English/American culture, art and physical education. There were daily field trips to places such as the Virginia Museum of Natural History and the Greensboro Science Center. Shijiazhuang No. 1 High School organized a talent show on the closing night.
