The 39 teenagers currently participating in the 16th Shanghai International Youth Interactive Friendship Camp underwent the "I Love Shanghai Orientation" activity in Shanghai on Monday.
With the theme of peace, friendship and future, the camp has attracted nearly 1,500 teenagers from about 70 countries and regions since its founding in 2005.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's camp only involves foreign teenagers living in Shanghai.
Organized by the Shanghai People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries and the Shanghai Youth Federation, the one-day orientation activity took participants on a tour of classic sites in Shanghai such as the North Bund, the Lujiazui area, the Site of the First National Congress of the Communist Party of China, Wukang Mansion and Wuzhong Road Station.
Each participant was provided with a canvas bag which contained items such as face masks, disinfectant, Band-Aids, essential balm, wet wipes, one-day public transportation cards and cards stipulating their tasks.
