APCC (Asia-Pacific Children’s Convention) Bridge (Virtual) Summer Camp 2021 update 

Due to the restrictions currently in place around the world – APCC is going virtual this year so that children who would have been eligible to apply for APCC in Fukuoka this year have the opportunity to participate in a specially designed program sharing both with Japanese children as well as children from the Asia Pacific region and wider including Peru, Bordeaux and maybe even Kyrgyzstan. The program will be run over 7 sessions with 5 sessions being shared with children all over the world.

It was great to have such keen interest in this different program and we received a number of high quality applications. It was difficult to short-list and after interviews with each applicant, we congratulate the 12 successful children (6 girls and 6 boys) as junior ambassadors for 2021. The children will be participating in an online camp from August to November with 5 Saturday evening sessions. The theme of this year's program is the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals which the children will explore, learn about and work on a task together that benefits their communities. They will also be preparing a joint 'performance' that will be shared on line after the program is completed.

We hope they will enjoy interacting and exchanging with children with Multi-Cultural backgrounds to experience many cultures around the world.

We are certain that they will foster friendship with children from many countries/regions. Most of all, we hope they will have a fun time together and share wonderful memories!
