More than 200 students from 10 primary schools are set to tour Asian Games venues in bid a build excitement in the run-up to Hangzhou 2022.
The camp has been set up by Hangzhou Asian Games Organising Committee (HAGOC) which previously held a programme that was designed to help children realise their football dreams by offering free equipment, online training courses and the chance to take part in friendly matches.
Last year the Football Dream Camp was attended by more than 2,300 students, but this year HAGOC has decided to expand the coverage beyond football with a view to the Asian Games.
Chen Huan, chief of the programme, said: "We changed its name from Football Dream Camp to Asian Games Dream Camp hoping to build a greater stage for kids with passion for the Asian Games."
During this month, students will visit historic cultural sites at weekends such as the ruins of Liangzhu dating back 5,000 years and the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal.
They will also be taken to Asian Games venues and have a go at fencing, shooting, golf, baseball and other sports.
It is understood that 1,371 schools nationwide applied to be part of the programme since its launch in April 2018 and HAGOC hopes to bring the Asian Games and sports closer to more students.
The Asian Games will run from September 10 to 25 2022 and will be held in China for the third time after Beijing 1990 and Guangzhou 2010.
