In the opening ceremony, Ven. Jan Hai and Ven. Hung I welcomed everyone and encouraged the campers to learn as much as they can during the month-long camp. Local officials also welcomed the campers, reminding them to have fun and stay safe during the camp.
The camp will have many classes and activities, all designed to introduce Buddhist concepts, teach campers how to integrate simple Buddhist principles into daily life, improve campers’ English skills, introduce the campers to western culture, and facilitate cultural exchange. Furthermore, the camp also aims to help the campers to better understand themselves and to instill a positive attitude to help them lead a confident and content life.
