|CAMP LEN DUONG TESTIMONIALS|
"I have been trying to describe what the Len Duong experience was like and have come to the conclusion that it is impossible to describe it fully with words. It has been said that during the year if you have not laughed from the bottom of your belly or cried from you heart, then you have not lived that year. I think at Len Duong...many of us have more than enough to live for many years to come as our hearts and minds were opened and lifted." --- Luu Duc Cuong, Toronto, Canada
"Never have I found a weekend as fun, as stimulating, or as rewarding as the weekend I spent at Camp Len Duong...I had many doubts about coming...because my Vietnamese isn't fluent, my opinions are often considered radical by my more conservative Vietnamese friends...But when the time came to say goodbye to my fellow campers, I resisted the idea of leaving." --- Katherine Vu, Houston
"...The experience was truly inexplicable...I managed only to exclaim, "Awesome!" Awesome is an understatement...I had expected Len Duong...to be just another summer camp, where friends are made and games played in an effort to "de-stress" from the everyday hectic environment. But was I wrong! Len Duong...was a learning experience, beyond all my expectations..." -- Tom Nguyen, Houston
"Len Duong camp...was the best present I have ever [gave] myself...there wasn't a dull moment..." (Lan Anh Le, Orlando, Florida)
"Len Duong truly is more than just any camp; it is one with a heart. What I discovered at Len Duong I cannot simply describe in words, for it is a feeling you have to experience to understand..." (Ann Vo, Toronto, Canada)
"I will always treasure 4 days at Camp Len Duong. It was probably one gift among the best gifts I received in my life. Camp Len Duong gave me the opportunity to become a much better leader, the opportunity to interact and observe other leaders."(Chu Ngoc Lan Anh, Ottawa, Canada)
"... At Len Duong Camp...I learned many things which benefited both my professional and my personal life. Not only did it allow me to have a chance to meet other Vietnamese youth with such energy and vibrancy, but it also inspired me to be a positive..." (Pham Oanh, Oklahoma)
"... I was overwhelmed by all the love that I was surrounded by...because in their eyes, I was a brother, a Vietnamese brother...it opened my heart and touched my soul. My Len Duong experience helped me find out who I am...I loved every moment of it. I cried on the plane ride back to New York." (Pham Minh Bao, New York)
