Camp China is for families with Children from China. It is a weekend summer heritage camp designed for the entire family. Camp China is held annually in Western North Carolina at the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly in Black Mountain, NC. While the emphasis is on the kids, Camp China provides programs that include parents and siblings. Camp China helps children understand and feel proud of their heritage and their adoptions. Campers are grouped by grade (K-2, 3 - 4, 5 - 8) and attend sessions where they have fun participating in activities such as dancing and singing, creating works of art, and playing chinese games.
While the children are in their breakout sessions, adults may attend workshops designed to continue learning about their children’s heritage and many phases of adoption. Adoption oriented workshops are woven into the schedule alongside cooking and Tai Chi workshops. The bonds children form at Camp China often lead to friendships that continue long after the camp’s last event. From arrival night to closing night, the event will be one you and your family will treasure forever. Many children who attend camp for years choose become camp counselors when they get older.
