The annual camp, titled “the guiding torch” this year, gives the teenagers a chance to practice Vietnamese, find out about the traditional culture of the country, and meet teenagers from their mother country.
Organized by the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union, it will last until August 5 this year.
After the opening ceremony, the expatriates visited the Mausoleum and took part in a seminar themed “Uncle Ho and overseas Vietnamese teenagers.”
Vietnam Summer Camp began to be held in 2004.
