A 2018 Xin FuXue Camp Participant Had This To Say About Their Camp Experience

A 2018 XIn Fuxue camp participant second session participant had this to say about camp: 

The trip has challenged me in many different ways. My comfort, my giving out when I missed family.I think because the goal was different for me. This was pouring out to a group of kids I might not see again. It opened my eyes to see children in China differently. I will definitely go home thinking and remembering diligently for a nation I hadn’t before. Thank you for the opportunity.

The Impact Summer Camp Can Make In A Person's Life

Linyi Camp participant: “This trip has truly impacted my life in ways I never expected.It changed me for the better. Being in another country, talking to the people there really shows you and makes you realize that there is a whole world out there. It is easy to feel like all life is happening where you are, but this made me realize there is so much more going on…”

Some Comments From A Former Summer Camp Participant

Tammy – “China, WOW!! It was life changing. I came back a different person; a person with renewed hope... I went with great expectations, and was pleasantly surprised when they were far surpassed in every way, shape, and form.

Bridging the World is all about building relationships through the use of conversational English. Class begins in a somewhat awkward teacher/ student environment with a simple introduction, “Hi, my name is…” and commences with tearful good-byes among dear friends…
