The second-longest National Holiday in China is upon us again! We find ourselves with 168 hours to spend with the whole family, and since most of us are likely staying put in Beijing due to covid travel restrictions, we rounded up a selection of kids camps and family-friendly activities that will help the holiday pass in a fun blink of an eye!
Halasho Outdoor Camp
Offering a smorgasbord of activities from parkour to Minecraft and flow-riding, Halasho Outdoor has two camps for kids from ages six to 15. Each day in the three day camp follows a different theme and will see kids taking part in different training activities and games related to the theme; for example on day three of the first round of camp, the theme is Player Unknown Battlegrounds (PUBG) and the kids will participate in a mountain hike and treasure hunt in line with the theme. Do note that there is a one night overnight stay in both camps. Led by founder Tim, who was former Russian special forces, Halasho Outdoor boasts a group of extremely dedicated foreign instructors and experienced local assistants who will provide a safe environment for your child.
