Each July the Shanghai People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries and the Shanghai Youth Federation sponsor an International Youth Interactive Friendship Camp in Shanghai.
This Camp will play an instrumental role in deepening mutual understanding and exchange between young people who will spend ten days together to experience Chinese culture whilst interacting with young people of many different nationalities and ethnicities.
Activities during the ten day camp will include Calligraphy, Chinese Language, Song and Dance, Chinese Food, and a one overnight homestay with local volunteer families to give young people exposure to various customs of Shanghainese.
Our ACFS National committee has received an invitation for (5) Australian students from 15 to 17 years of age to attend this camp in Shanghai with an appropriate chaperone. Successful youth participants will need to pay for their own international travel expenses, while the Shanghai hosts will cover the cost of the event, board and lodging, and local transportation.
We encourage suitable youths to apply for this unique opportunity in their respective ACFS state branches.
