Campers travel through 4,000 years of fascinating Chinese history and arts to experience one of the great ancient cultures of the world. Discovering everything from giant pandas to paper dragons, they journey across the Silk Road and surround themselves with the wildlife, traditions, and celebrations of China. Visits to the Freer and Sackler Galleries, the National Zoo, and the Natural History Museum inspire them as they practice the art of calligraphy, sample authentic cuisine, paint delicate fans, dig into the history of the Terracotta Warriors, and learn some basics of Mandarin Chinese. At the end of the week, guests are welcomed into an immersive exhibit.
