The Chinese Bridge Summer Camp is an educational and cultural trip subsidised and organised by the Confucius Institute Headquarters/Hanban for secondary school students. The Confucius Institute Munich has been organising this special China journey for youth from Southern Bavaria since 2009. The Chinese Bridge Summer Camp is more than just youth travel. The students collect intercultural experiences, and experience the foreign culture directly and authentically.
The two-week camp takes place annually in August. The group flies with German-speaking supervisors from Munich airport. The itinerary within China varies, but generally includes a stay in Beijing with a visit to the Great Wall and the Forbidden City. A Chinese language course, workshops (calligraphy, tai chi, martial arts and music), excursions and meetings with Chinese students guarantee that everyone stays busy. The students experience the culture of traditional and modern China up close.
All costs during the stay in China are paid by the Confucius Institute Headquarters/Hanban.
The costs for flights (approximately €900), visa and obligatory travel health and liability insurance, as well as spending money, must be paid by the families.
The flight is organised and booked by the Confucius Institute Munich.
All students living in Southern Bavaria, who learn the Chinese Language and want to experience traditional and modern China, can apply. The applicants should be at least 15 years old. The number of participants is limited.
Students from our language classes and other applicants with prior knowledge of the Chinese language are granted preferential admission. A proof of the language proficiency must be provided at the time of application.
Students without prior knowledge of the Chinese language are welcome to take a course at Confucius Institute Munich:
