For ten years, Dongguan has been organizing at least one Summer or Winter Camp for teenagers of Chinese descent. The goal has been to enhance understanding and ties of overseas teenagers with China, and to cultivate the development of Chinese education overseas. More than 1,000 young overseas Chinese have been invited to participate in the Dongguan programme over the years.

During this year's 6-day summer camp, the teenagers will learn Chinese calligraphy, martial arts, and dragon-boat racing. Elements of Dongguan history will be introduced by day trips to Humen Fort and The Opium War Museum. A trip to the Dongguan Civil Art Centre will hope to elaborate on traditional elegant arts and cultural communications.
