Welcome 2017 Camp Beijing Team
Hello and Welcome to English Summer Camp 2017,
We have been planning this trip for several months already and are nearing the date when we depart to Beijing. We are scheduled to land in Beijing on 14 July, 2017. After a short greeting by school officials, we will all be taken by bus to the former ZGC school in Shunyi District, about 1 and ½ hour ride from the Peking Airport.
We welcome sisters Natalie and Bridget; Bonnie and daughters Amy and Emma; Laura and Hannah…all from Downington, Pennsylvania; sisters Kayla and Gracelyn , Carol and son Braeden, all from Coatesville, Pennsylvania; Jack and wife Bess from Inman, South Carolina; Nancy and son Jeremy from Glenmoore, Pennsylvania; and Byron from Lyman, South Carolina. Sixteen of us in all will spend two weeks with the great Chinese youth who will be challenged daily to Improve Their Spoken English.
We will devote day and night to reaching and teaching these middle school children about Life In America. Subjects will be varied: we will teach subjects like American Money, Holidays, Shopping, Culture and Weather, all to achieve both an understanding and usefulness of the English Language.
We are expecting about 90 to 100 students from a variety of places in China, many as far away as Inner Mongolia. Teaching plans ore ongoing. Afternoon and night activities will provide a variety of both fun and learning. We really appreciate you lifting all of us to achieve our goals and leaving a lasting legacy to the Chinese people.
