Mandarin Camp 2020 Day 1

Dear Parents,

We couldn't have asked for better weather to begin our 2020 Summer Camp season. We are extremely grateful to be in a country with the such a handle on Covid-19. As you can see from the photos, it is difficult to social distance at a summer camp.

The day started with the bus pick up in Taipei. Campers had temperatures checked before boarding and soon we were all on the way. Once at camp, smiling counselors greeted campers and began the check in process. Children met their new friends and played name games and ice breakers and warmed up to the culture of summer camp. It didn't take long. The nurse met every camper and before long it was lunch time.

After lunch time and a nice rest, it was time to dive into activities. The blue and red teams rotated through two activities in the afternoon -- cooperative games and rock climbing. It was during this time that we noticed a definite change in the sky. Campers took turns using eclipse-viewing glasses (thanks to a generous camper!) to watch the eclipse.

Right now, campers are clean from showers and enjoying dinner. Soon, we will begin our evening program -- opening campfire. Campers will sing songs, play games, and roast marshmallows for S'mores. It will be a great end to a long first day of camp.

Goodbye from Camp Taiwan,


As for the Dropbox link below, not all folders will have pictures added every day. The first few days, most pictures are sorted by team, not activity. Some activities lead to more picture taking opportunities. If some teams have more pictures than other teams, we will try and even it out by the end of the week (but no promises!!). We do our best, but our main concern is your campers' safety and programming, pictures are a distant fourth or fifth (even though they may be number one to you). Please note, we will not reply to emails about photos. Enjoy.

Please find a Dropbox Link below. Photos will be uploaded to this folder every evening -- usually by 8 p.m.
