For the fourth consecutive summer, four high school students from across the Nechako Lakes School District will be leaving for Beijing, China on July 11th to participate in a ten-day summer camp.  The camp is hosted by the Beijing International Education Exchange (BIEE), a non-profit organization affiliated to Beijing Municipal Education Commission, which would be the equivalent to BC’s provincial Ministry of Education.  BIEE covers all of the ‘in China’ costs for the participants.

Over one thousand students from over 20 countries will participate in the Summer Camp, which highlights Chinese language and culture activities. Participants will be guided through classroom and cultural settings throughout Beijing, with field trips, cultural performances, cooking demonstrations and many other activities including:

 

 

* Basic Mandarin and Chinese Culture Lesson

* Chinese Traditional Handcrafts such as Chinese knot, Chinese painting, clay and dough figurines

* Kung Fu demonstration and lessons

* Famous historic and cultural sites tour with visits to the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, the National Stadium
