Stratford students will have the opportunity to spend two weeks in China this summer through the Confucius Institute of Wesleyan College.

Julie Rogers, assistant director to the Lane Center at Wesleyan, explained the summer camp program during an assembly on Tuesday in the Henry Tift Fine Arts Auditorium. Juniors, sophomores and freshmen attended the meeting.

The camp gives opportunities for high school students to visit Guangzhou and Beijing from June 17-30. Students only  have to pay for their visa , a round-trip airfare and incidental expenses while in China.

Students must be at least 15 years old. It is not necessary to speak Chinese, but all participants are required to attend 20 hours of language and cultural orientation classes.

The deadline for applications is March 15. For more information, contact Ashley Miller, program director of the Confucius Institute, at 478-747-3960 or e-mail [email protected]
