Participants will bring joy and laughter to the summer campus of BFSU and leave with fond memories of Beijing!

As always, "You and Me, in Beijing" BFSU Summer Camp 2023 has positioned itself as an international platform for cultural exchange. It aims to combine education with entertainment and allows participants to get close to China and talk with the world.
