Summer Camp 2020
Duration: June 6th - July 20th
Vietnam is SAFE now as the Covid-19 outbreak has been controlled!
We at NAC are closely monitoring the current outbreak of coronavirus as we were concerned about the upcoming summer trip to Vietnam 2020. Great news: Vietnam is safe, and the outbreak is under control! We are proceeding with our summer camp plans, and you can rest assured that we are making all the necessary precautions pre- and post-trip. Our contingency plan for any emergency is in place.
To give you peace of mind, three volunteers who were active at Phong Y Parish from February 1 through February 17 safely came back from Vietnam and did not have to go through a qualitative process upon arriving in Seattle, WA. Therefore, Vietnam is not under a travel warning according to Travel.State.gov.
Furthermore, according to Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, “Since the outbreak, no infection cases have been in critical condition; seven out of 16 confirmed patients have been cleared of the virus, and more patients will be cured and discharged from the hospital in coming days.“
NAC in partnership with Phong Y Catholic Church, Thanh Hoa, Vietnam. Our summer camp is a life-changing opportunity for participants. The activities are unique in that it represents the only Summer Camp in Thanh Hoa, Viet Nam. Which offers a free program of day-long learning, entertaining and distinctive character building activities for its participants and, the community.
