The Bridging The World Winter Camp Program was begun in 2008 in response to help meet the ever increasing demand of Chinese middle school and college students to come to America during their Spring Festival. While here the Chinese students visit local high schools, sitting in on classes and interacting with the American students. The Chinese students also have had the opportunity to tour colleges and universities as well as New York City, Washington D.C.,. and various other sites in America..
The Chinese students come to the USA for the purpose of being immersed in the American culture for ten days to two weeks and to improve their spoken English and knowledge of our country. Many desire to pursue advanced degrees in American colleges and universities. Others just want to experience America and go shopping to bring many expensive goods back to China.
