Arts and sports were taught by two Taiwanese teacher selected by the Taiwan Overseas Chinese Affairs Committee, Ms. Pan Huiling of traditional arts and Mr Rong Peichen who took the reins in the sport field The camp team courses are divided into two groups: boys and girls. Under the leadership of Mr. Pan Huiling, the young people realized the profoundness of Chinese traditional paintings. A few simple strokes painted the breeze of bamboo, and a few more painted the emptiness of mountains and clouds, all defined by simple shades of black and white. Out of the artistic conception of Chinese painting, the art of making a shadow play is time-consuming and mentally beautiful. From the selection of characters to the use of a few chopsticks, a lively performance can be a created effortlessly, yet beautiful. Mr Rong Peichen once won the Asian Cup International Diabolo Tournament Championship. His jaw-dropping techniques kept the youth determined and inspired their enthusiasm for learning. Everyone dared to try various moves, whether success or failure, they all worked extremely hard and gave 110% to mimicking the teacher's designated actions.
In addition to the two main courses of folk art and folk sports, the camp also arranged classes for the study of Buddhist rules, discussions of the spirit of youthful bodhisattva, inspiring words from grand master Hsing Yun, and a magnitude of mentally challenging games. On the last night, everyone offered a pray for their family and friends in the shrine of Samantabhadra. A pray written by grand master Hsing Yun wishing for their family’s happiness, safety and health.
On the last day of the camp on the 27th, during the camping ceremony, young people displayed the Chinese paintings and weaving techniques that they had learned over the past two days. The results of the Diabolo that they had practiced in the few days also won many applause. Mr Pei-Chen Chen also performed a world class act, juggling four Diabolo at same time! His exquisite skills were truly amazing and world class. After announcing the rankings of the groups, the young people reluctantly bid farewell and look forward to the next gathering.
