Last Full Day in Qiqihar

Summer Camps: 

We all have been extremely busy here. We had our Birthday Party on Monday night and it was a huge success! Thank you to our Host, Jason!

Tuesday night was English corner and everyone enjoyed playing card games and making string bracelets.

Last night was Skit night and Annalise did a great job of running it. Everyone loved the silly antics of the Americans!

Tuesday in Qiqihar

Summer Camps: 

Hey all,
Plans are liquid here and change without notice...we just say “it’s China”!

Movie night got swapped with English Corner night, because the theater is being used by another group, but we still know how to have fun even when things change unexpectedly! It’s been pouring rain here all day today and we all have been properly wet! Despite the weather, everyone is having fun. We would appreciate lifts for health, some have been battling fatigue and sore throats.

Everyone on our team is an asset we can’t be without.


Monday in the Qiqihar Camp

Summer Camps: 

Hello friends and family,
We are all having an amazing time at camp.  Last night was our Human Clue event and everyone had an awesome time! Mr Mustard ended up being the culprit. Tonight is our camp Birthday Party! Our host is planning a big event!!! We are staying strong to the end and hope you will continue your lifts!
Shout Outs:
Hello family and friends! It has been a whirlwind here, but so much fun! Tony and I are exhausted every night, because we have been All In every day. Looking forward to telling you all our stories. Elaine and Tony

Day Four is in the books for the Qiqihar Camp

Summer Camps: 

We have been very busy here in Qiqihar. Classes are going well and the kids are learning a lot. We were visited by the local news station and were filmed and interviewed during afternoon activities. This area of Qiqihar doesn’t get many foreign visitors, so they are very curious to see how we interact with the children. They enjoyed seeing sports, dance, drama, team challenge, and English corner. Last nights activity was Crazy Digital Camera Hunt, which is done in mentor groups, and Helen’s team won!

Team Qiqihar in Beijing

Summer Camps: 

Hello friends and family,
We have arrived in Beijing and everyone is healthy and happy! We have been so busy with touring and hanging out with the Datong and a Beijing teams, that I haven’t had a chance to check in. Today is Sunday and we have another full day here in Beijing, then we fly out early(6am) to Qiqihar. We have all managed to get plenty of rest and look forward to the weeks ahead building relationships with our students. I will check in again when we get to Qiqihar.



Getting Ready to Leave!

Summer Camps: 

Hi Everyone, the 2nd session team going to Qiqihar leaves for Beijing this Thursday!  We are all a little nervous and excited!  We'll be joining the other 3rd of our team (who were in 1st session camps) for a little touring before heading to Qiqihar on 7/30.  We'll be sure to update the blog when we safely arrive in Beijing.  Lee
