2015 The First Summer Camp

The Three Character Classic

From July 3rd to July 14th, 2017, the Jiqian School Intensive Scripture Reading Summer Camp was successfully held. A total of 26 children participated. Among them, we are especially grateful to the parents for their enthusiastic support and all teachers and volunteers for their dedication. The children completed the Three-Character Classics together 100 in the past two weeks, though they did not realize that they were catchy at first, through continuous self-breakthrough, even memorized them by the end. Students also learned to read and practiced writing. Through the guidance of the teachers, the children also learn to be filial and grateful, learn to be considerate of their parents’ hard work, and learn how to help with housework to reduce the burden on their parents. Through the blind guide activities, let the children realize the importance of the teacher’s guidance. In addition to reading the scriptures, everyone also did yoga, played games, made biscuits, made crafts, etc. We threw a party to celebrate finishing reading the three-character classics 100 times!

After nearly half a year of intensive preparations, Jiqian academy’s 2019 “filial piety” themed Summer Camp  officially kicked off on July 2. This summer camp is based on “The Book of Filial Piety” as the main theme of reading and explaining. The “Book of Filial Piety” is a rare work that systematically displays the Confucian thought system and is also the core foundation of Confucianism. It describes “filial piety” and the methods and steps to promote it that emperors, princes, princes, officials, scholars, and common people should observe. It is hoped that by guiding the children to learn the spirit of filial piety, they can understand their parents’ good intentions, enhance parent-child relationship, and learn to be considerate about others.    Learn More
