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.

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!
