Paying it forward: Campers supporting campers.
Camp Len Duong is a Vietnamese Youth Leadership retreat. Since 2005, I have been part of the Camp Len Duong family, starting off as a camper, and later becoming a staff where I acted as Sponsorship Advisor, Camp Security Staff and A/V Specialist. The reason for my passion and commitment to the Camp is simple: it has helped shaped over thousands of Vietnamese North American youths through the years!
The Camp offers a wide variety of activities for the youths (ages 18 and older):
- leadership workshops
- team building activities
- lessons in Vietnamese history
- opportunity for youths to learn and practice Vietnamese
The Camp encourages youths to socialize, network, be creative, and be inspired to initiate changes in their community. The Camp also offers many scholarships to motivated and inspiring youths.
Through the years, the Camp has been hosted in various places across North America, including Texas, California, Minnesota, Virginia, and Tennessee. This year, it will be hosted in Toronto, a rare opportunity for Canadian youths, and for American youths to visit Canada!
Hosting such an international event is a huge undertaking, as staffs volunteer their time, meals are included for campers, rental of audio/visual equipments is necessary, and guests speakers are invited.
In the past, guest speakers comprised of successful Vietnamese professionals such as Council Members, CEO and Presidents of companies, Congress Members, Regional Director of YMCA, NFL player, USAF members, Director of Ford, and many more!
Your sponsorship ensures that camp registration fees are kept at a minimal for our campers while offering them the best experience.
