Hi everyone!
It’s almost that time of year! The annual KD Camping trip! Our team has been working hard to plan for this year’s event, and we can assure you that it will be bigger and better than ever! For the early birds that have already registered, thank you for doing so ahead of time! For our friends who are still on the fence, don’t miss out on what is potentially one of the best times of your life! Expect to meet people, make new friends, and enjoy a weekend filled with fun games, great food, and high spirited competitions. If that doesn’t get you excited for camp, then here is a final quote from a wise man named Drake “YOLO”.
Come make memories with us.
See you at camp !!!

I) GENERAL KD SUMMER CAMP INFO

When: August 1 – 3, 2014
Where: Prince William Forest Park
18100 Park Headquarters Road, Triangle, Virginia 22172
Registration: $70 by July 15, $80 thereafter (see registration page for more info, coupon available.)
Camp theme: Lửa Lam Sơn (Lam son spirit)

Đầu thế kỷ 15, đất An Nam bị nhà Minh xâm lược và cai trị làm cho người dân khổ cực trăm bề. Lúc bấy giờ, ở làng Lam Sơn, có 1 đấng anh hùng áo vải — Lê Lợi — đứng lên khởi nghĩa, kêu gọi, chiêu nạp những nhân tài để cứu nguy dân ta ra khỏi sự lầm than, ách đô hộ của giặc. Sau 10 năm nằm gai nếm mật (1418 – 1427), Lê Lợi đã đánh tan tành quân xâm lược để lấy lại lảnh thổ và nền độc lập cho nước Nam.

Có thể nói đất Lam Sơn là tụ điểm của những anh hùng, hào kiệt (như Lê Lai, Lê Lợi, Nguyễn Trãi) đến với nhau cùng chung lý tưởng, đến với nhau với 1 mục đích cao đẹp để giúp dân ta bớt khổ, có một cuộc sống bình an hơn.  Ví lẽ ấy mà năm nay Trại Hè Kết Đoàn XIII lấy Lửa Lam Sơn làm chủ đề với hy vọng gom lại các bạn từ khắp miền để ngoài vui chơi, thì chúng ta còn kết nối, học hỏi và ngồi lại với nhau chia sẽ những kinh nghiệm cuộc sống, cũng như xem chúng ta có thể làm được gì 1 cách ý nghĩa và cùng nhau thắp lên và truyền nhau ngọn lửa Lam Sơn.
