This is a Summer Camp organised by the Chinese Government aimed at overseas Chinese between 14-18 years old with some Mandarin knowledge. It is a 2-week camp in Yunnang Province, south China. The date is not finalised yet, it will be between July to Sept. Children who want to participate will pay for travel expenses from UK to China themselves, all expenses in China including accommodation, lessons and sightseeing tours will be covered by Chinese government.

We are looking for interest from parents. I think it is a great opportunity for our children to learn Mandarin and Chinese culture. I only received this notice tonight and note of interest need to be provided to the organiser this Saturday.

Apology for the short notice. Please let me know if you want your child to participate or if you have any questions.
