Hohhot Camp Update


Welcome to the camp Hohhot blog and the news update. We will try to post as much as possible depending on the internet access.


This will be the first time Bridging The World has done a camp in Hohhot, the capital of Inner Mongolia.


We are looking forward to teaching in this new area. The Bridging The World team will be made up of 12 team members. Our team is from all over the USA – MO, VA, PA, NC, FL, NJ, VT, and OH. Of those 12 only three are newcomers so we will have a veteran team to serve and teach ESL in Hohhot.

15 Years of Service and Honorarium for Chris and Woody

This past Saturday, March 11, 2017, we had a great BTW Summer Camp reunion and honorarium time for 15 years of service for Chris and Woody.


Close to 100 people made the trip from out of town and locally to participate. Past camp participants came from some of the following locations: MD, PA, NC, SC,  and VA. Many more who could not make the trip wrote cards, letters and emails. We even had a video sent from the Bridging The World team in China.
