Culture Camp: Indianapolis

Camp joins kids, Chinese culture
Adopted in China, Elizabeth Johnson lives happily with her family in Carmel. But she still welcomes the chance to learn about her former homeland.

That's why the 9-year-old fourth-grader at Forest Dale Elementary in Carmel attended a Chinese culture camp this summer at The International School of Indiana in Indianapolis.

"I know how to speak more (Chinese now)," said Elizabeth.

"I want to learn more about China when I get older because I've heard it's nice there."

Members of Families with Children from China Indiana and the Indianapolis Chinese Community Center Inc. started the camp last year, both for adopted children like Elizabeth and children of local Chinese families.
