Summer vacation, the longest off-school period for students, has begun. Travelling is many parents' choice to spend the holiday with their children. For others, sending their kids to different activity camps seems to be a good idea.
In this summer camp in Shangdong Province, students learn skills on how to survive in an emergency.
Staff from the Red Cross tell them to ensure their own safety first when in danger, then to dial 120 for help.
Besides the knowledge of where to stay safe and how to evacuate in an earthquake, students also learn basic medical skills.
A student said, "This is helpful. We can do rescue breathing for others when we are in such circumstances."
Ranging in age from 3 to 12 years old, these children are taking martial arts lessons.
The coach, Shao Qinghong has been practicing Kungfu for 30 years. She says she is worried about children's health because they spend most of their time sitting in the classroom.
Shao Qinghong, martial arts coach, said, "I hope traditional Chinese Kungfu can help improve their health."
This is also the parents' hope.
A parent said, "My child is relatively weak and introverted. I really hope the class will help him improve."
A student said, "I learned many skills here."
Two hours of practice every day is quite valuable for these kids. Many say they are interested in it because it's something they can't learn in school.
Other different kinds of classes are also held across China. You can learn how to play a musical instrument, sing, dance or pick the art of Chinese calligraphy. There are many choices for students' to spend their holiday.
