Participants to the 2012 Summer Camp join for a photo in front of the Reunification Palace in HCM City on July 24, 2012. The camp is generally a trans-Viet trip held from July 11 – 30 to create a chance for attendants to visit historic monuments and tourism sites along their way from the North to the South.
The youths visited President Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum in Hanoi; joined in a ceremony to commemorate martyrs and heroes in Thai Binh province; held flower offering rites at the Ho Chi Minh Statue in Nghe An, and temples of King Quang Trung and Heroine Vo Thi Sau. They also had meetings and exchanges with local youths in central Hue and the central highland city of Da Lat.
The teengers also traveled many famous tourist sites of their native nation, including the relics of the presidency palace in Hanoi, Bai Dinh Pagoda in northern Ninh Binh Province, Pren Waterfall in Da Lat, and Reunification Palace in HCM City. In the coming days, they will visit the island district Con Dao. The closing ceremony of the camp will be held in Ba Ria-Vung Tau before the participants return to Ho Chi Minh City to bid farewell.
Annually, the summer camp has been organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the State Committee for Vietnamese Overseas since 2003 to help Viet Kieu learn their history and language and unite with local people for the development of the nation.
