2016 Easter Children’s Chinese Culture Camp was held by the Confucius Institute at the University of Saskatchewan from March 28 to April 1. Twenty-four children from local schools participated in this camp.
In the course of the camp, under the guidance and instruction of the volunteer teachers from the Confucius Institute and from the local community, the children learned a variety of Chinese language and culture courses, including Chinese language, calligraphy, shadow play, paper-cutting, martial arts, dough figurine, Chinese painting, Hulusi (a Chinese musical instrument), and so on. They also learned to play a number of typical Chinese games such as rope-jumping, shuttlecock kicking, etc. Activities also included campus tour, library tour, Easter egg making, cookies making, and many others. All the children were actively involved in the activities and had a wonderful time!
At the Closing Ceremony, Chinese Director of the Confucius Institute Dr. Ning Liu presented to each child a certificate of participation and expressed his gratitude to the excellent work of all the volunteer teachers.
