We are excited to announce a wonderful opportunity for all families who have adopted from China! In cooperation with the China Center for Children’s Welfare and Adoption (CCCWA), NCFA (National Council for Adoption) is excited to announce the “Celebrating Culture and Experiencing China” Winter Tour from December 23, 2012 - January 1, 2013. This year’s tour will be open to children who were adopted from China along with their adoptive parents and siblings. This tour also allows for an optional visit to their child’s orphanage for those families who are interested.
Children born in China and adopted by American parent(s) are eligible for this trip at no cost to the child once they have purchased their child’s air transportation to and from Beijing. Authorized chaperones can also be provided for children 12 and above whose parents cannot attend. (though availability is limited for this option) The trip will begin with a four-day tour of Beijing, during which participants will have the opportunity to experience the vibrant and colorful culture of China’s capital. From there, camp participants will travel to several cities throughout China, including Xi’an, Chengdu, and ShangLi. Among other activities, participants will visit the Great Wall, feed and clean panda bears at the BiFengXia Panda Center, and experience enriching local cultural activities.
