I joined World Culture Society because I wanted to make more friends. Through this program, I learnt a lot about Asian culture as I made many Asian friends in this club. I never felt left out. I enjoyed learning about new cultures and traditions and now I have many friends from all races! My most memorable session was when Adrena brought mooncakes and we got to taste such a great dessert! Food is the best way to understand a culture.
I enjoyed this club so much because everyone was so encouraging. Especially when I shared about my Japanese origami traditions and taught them how to fold a tsuuru (origami paper crane), everyone paid close attention and clapped loudly after my presentation. I know my English is not clear but I tried my best and it was a good experience. In the future, I would like to share about Japanese tea customs and the onsen (public baths) experience.
Through this club, I learnt about different ways of thinking through the sharing of all the various cultures. I also made many new friends through our visits to Heritage Park and watching hockey games as part of this club. The presentation of my Italian culture, where I’m from (Piemonte) was a very interesting one. I am proud to share about my culture and to know that everyone enjoyed hearing about it is also very encouraging.
Through this club, I got to know more about the cultures of my neighbouring Asian countries. I feel more connected, especially now as I am living in another country (Canada), I feel more proud of my heritage. Also, as we are the minority in Canada, I feel good meeting people who understand how I am feeling and what I am going through. The different types of food that we get to try is the best part about this club. I like that we get to have practical hands-on experience making the food like onigiri and Vietnamese rolls.
非常感谢cccsa带给了孩子们一个快乐的假期。我的女儿和儿子参加了六周cccsa的summer camp，每天回家他们都兴奋并快乐的给我讲述在summer camp那些有趣的科学小实验和游戏。每周两到三次的field trip也是他们所喜欢的，很多的地方都是他们期盼已久想要去的。One world week带他们领略到各个国家不同的文化和美食，他们也是记忆深刻。Overnight camp更是一个小高潮，由期盼到激动，到兴奋，再到回味，三天的时间让他们玩到high，学到high。做为父母的我们看到每天孩子们脸上的笑容，我们也可以体会到他们在cccsa的快乐，再次感谢cccsa！感谢所有的工作人员！

My children went to CCCSA Summer Camp for the second time. They especially loved the “One World!” theme week, they could learned different country’s cultural, language and foods etc. They both had a wonderful time and couldn’t wait to go back next year. Thanks again for all the camp helpers, you guys all did a great job! Thanks!
CCCSA’s summer camps are very lively in every activity they thought out like water balloon fights, trampoline parks and an amazing camping week. Their leaders and volunteers are super friendly and always gives us something to laugh about. Definitely coming for another year!
This is my daughter’s 2nd year attending CCCSA overnight summer camp. She is a quiet, shy girl, but the staff and volunteers are so friendly and welcoming, which puts her at ease to open-up and make friends with the other campers. Through a wide variety of activities such as archery, canoeing, zip‑lining and rock climbing her confidence has grown. She is more willing to step out of her comfort zone and “give it a go” on new things.
CCCSA Staff and Volunteers are very knowledgeable and trained. They like to show the youngsters how to have a good time while still being kids, make good choices, being helpful, respect each other, and teach them about team work. This is displayed in the Crate Stacking activity where the youths demonstrated trust and team work from start to finish. Thank you for instilling these fundamental values in our youths to be good role models for others.
My daughter is super excited for Summer 2019 Overnight Camp and can’t wait to see what the amazing staff at CCCSA has planned.
