When the new students arrive in August to Sweden there will be a big language camp in District 2380 since there's not many exchange students. The world know how to speak Swedish. So they will spent about 2 weeks together learning how to speak Swedish during that time also do a lot of sightseeing in the Southern and middle parts of Sweden. There are usually a few more camps arranged for the students to get together but it varies a lot from year to year. Sometimes they got lucky and get to go up to Stockholm to see when they give out the Nobel Prize. That is a very exciting event but not everyone gets to go.
The exchange students already arrived here from all over the world. They won't do anything yet now together with the others. But on September 13-14, they will go hiking at Mount Warning in Tyalgum Pop. And on October, they will see The Jacaranda festival ( flowers ).
All the exchange students start to arrive one by one in August. For a month they will not meet the other first. And on mid September we will have an orientation district in Lake Chelan, Washington U.S.A. And on October, we will go to Silver Star Mountain, Vermont.
