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.
On December 30-31, 2019 and January 2-4, 2020, we held the “Chinese Characters in the Classics” Winter Camp. From many classics (“Xueyong Analects”, “Di Zi Gui”), 11 very meaningful words were selected from the excerpts from the Tao Te Ching, the Book of Filial Piety, etc., and the scriptures in various related classics were taught to children, so that children know that they should want to have a happy, safe and beautiful life. In regards to Tao, Virtue, Mind and Harmony, we must use the correct methods that conform to the Dao (sincere, prudence, faith, and kindness), and these methods need to be taught to us by the saints with full life experience.

Teachers use various methods of entertaining and learning to select seven very meaningful characters from various classics. The scriptures in the related classics are taught to the children, so that children know that if they want to get the happy, peaceful and beautiful things in life. Learn More
The camp took place over a course of eight days from December 26 to December 29, 2017 and January 1st to January 5th, 2018. In this winter camp, the “Hundred Family Names” and “Motto” were learned. There were quite a few children who participated in this winter camp, and there were also a few children who came from the United States. After two weeks of study, under the leadership of Teacher Caiyu and loving fathers, mothers, sisters, and brothers, everyone was able to recite them easily, which was a joyful accomplishment.

From December 21st to 23rd and December 28th to 30th, 2015, Jiqian School held a 6-day classic reading winter camp. A total of 29 children participated. The children learn “Thousand Characters” together, reciting it 100 times collectively, totaling 100,000 words! We hope that through the recitation of the traditional official script version of “Thousand Characters”, a deep memory of these thousand traditional characters and the font of the official script would have been formed.
In addition to intensive reading of the scriptures, we also had a unique link-life education course. Learn More
