Jinshan hosts youngsters summer camp on coast defense

Jul 9, 2018

More than 300 youngsters from Shanghai joined a summer camp with the theme of coast defense in Jinshan District on July 4.

The campers joined military trainings, visited historical ruins and took part in other exercises during the four-day summer camp.

In the last three years the themed summer camp has attracted more than 2,000 students to Jinshan District, which has military facilities and coast defense ruins along her 23.3 kilometer coastline.

In 2016 Jinshan joined hands with Shanghai Youth Activity Center to set up a club for youngsters with the theme of coast defense, holding lectures, screening movies and visiting coast defense educational facilities.

Some youngsters from Pinghu City in neighboring Zhejiang Province also joined the coast defense summer camp this year.
