Busy with Preparations!

The staff at ASIA is busy with preparations for our Hope’s Journey camp! Sandra and Fei are scrambling to get ready for this fast approaching trip to China. They are required by CCAA to be in China one week prior to the camp on July 26 & 27 (swine flu precaution). They will use that time to prepare and organize for the activities and program of the camp. Our theme is Tropical – Sandra and Fei will teach the kids how to do the Limbo and how to do a Hula Dance. The kids will also have fun crafts to make and keep – coloring their own beach balls, decorating their own visors, making their own bracelets and more. We are excited to also have each child create a special quilt square that will be brought back to our office in order for us to create a very special reminder of our Hope’s Journey camp. Each child will also receive an ASIA t-shirt and special themed “goody bags” from the ASIA staff.

Sandra and Fei will spend two busy days with the children. The schedule looks like this:
Day I
8:30am-9:30am: Opening speech, presentation by CCAA and ASIA staff
9:30am-11:30am: Self introduction from each child (1-2 minute per child)
11:30am-12:30pm: Lunch
1pm-3:30pm: Performance/Talent Show (from the children of the orphanage)
4pm-5pm: Activities for interaction
5:30pm-6:30pm: Dinner

Day II
8:30am-11:30pm: Interaction and Evaluation
11:30pm-12:30pm: Lunch
12:30pm-2:30pm: TBD
2:30pm-3:30pm: Closing, performance and photo time

Sandra and Fei are excited to get to China and meet the children! The rest of the staff is excited to hear all about the children and the camp and to see the pictures and video that Sandra and Fei will send back to us.

Just a reminder to keep checking back for updates; we’ll post new information just as soon as we have it.
