The National Vietnamese Venturing Supercamp (Trai Khai Pha III) Organizing Committee is pleased to announce Trai Khai Pha III, the National Vietnamese Venturing Supercamp, commissioned by theNational Vietnamese Scouting Committee of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). The Supercamp is scheduled for July 9-15, 2017, at Camp Emerald Bay on beautiful Catalina Island, California.
Trai Khai Pha III is a week-long program designed to allow Scouts at the Venturing level to experience new opportunities to test their skills and to meet other Scouts from across the country. This camp will offer a number of high adventure activities, utilizing the beach/waterfront and the camp facility for Vietnamese youth to be able to enjoy kayaking, sailing, canoeing, boating, snorkeling, and much, much more! As you can see, this “Trai Khai Pha III” camp will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Vietnamese youth to participate in a high-quality and exciting program.
Our Scouts come from differing socioeconomic backgrounds, and many will not be able to afford the $275.00 camp fee that is necessary to cover the cost of the camp, much less travel costs. Therefore, we are collaborating with the community to plan a fundraising event in which all proceeds will go toward camp scholarships for underprivileged youth. The Supercamp Organizing Committee will be hosting a fundraising banquet on Friday, November 4, 2016, at 7:00 pm, at Mon Amour Restaurant, 3150 W.
Lincoln Ave., Ste. 134, Anaheim, CA, 92804. This banquet will include a seven-course dinner and entertainment. The entertainment will be provided by Truc Sinh Band, MC’d by Nguyen Khoa Dieu and Quyen Bao Chau, and our musicians include Diem Lien, Hoang Anh Thu, and more. There will also be raffle drawings.
Our Fundraising Committee would like to invite you and your business to sponsor a table at our event. Any donation, any amount, will go a long way in helping us provide this amazing experience for our Vietnamese youth. We know your time is valuable, and we will be very grateful for your attendance. Your donation will be tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
