42 college students from 13 countries including Canada, Taiwan, Malaysia, Vietnam, China, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines and Korea joined the camp hosted from 12th through the 19th.
Participants were grouped into a team of 2 overseas and 1 Korean student and each teams spent most of their time together. Teams mixed their members for each programs allowing students to get to know everyone from around the world.
The theme of this year’s leadership camp was “cultural diversity : stimulus, understanding, and growth”. Student participants enjoyed guest speakers’ lectures, group discussions on various global issues, learning Korean culture with K-POP dance and Korean food. Students also visited tourist attractions in Daegu and Busan. On the 17th, participants spent meaningful time at a rehabilitation center in Dong-gu, Daegu by volunteering to help the disabled and taking a tour of the facility.
