BISHKEK (TCA) — Over three weeks, the University of Central Asia (UCA) hosted top 73 students from Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan at the Second Annual Summer Camp, an integrated academic enrichment experience for Grade 10 students, whose closing ceremony took place at the Royal Beach Resort in Kyrgyzstan’s Issyk-Kul region on August 8. The Summer Camp participants built friendships and long-lasting relationships through science, debate, sports, drama and field trips, where they gained valuable experience practicing English-language skills and studying collaboratively.
“This camp highlights the simple fact that the greatest resource of any society is its human capital, young people in particular,” said UCA Director General Dr Bohdan Krawchenko. “Admission to the summer camp was through an objective selection process. This is a process that reaps huge rewards. When talent is the sole criteria for participation in a programme you will be amazed by the capacities, imagination and commitment of young people. It is the responsibility of those who lead higher educational institutions to nurture and challenge these young people on a journey of intellectual inquiry and professional growth.”
