What is CYRCLE?

Since the first camp at Bridgeport, Texas, in 1997 the Sun Ray community has endeavored to provide young Asian Americans with the opportunity to interact with peers of similar interests and experience hands-on exercises furthering leadership development. Every year, the program improves by continuously building onto previous year's foundation of experience. Adult supervisors are minimal since students are given the chance to take the helm of running the daily activities and camp schedule. The campers enjoyed many activities, such as the night hike, the peer discussions, Casino night and exercises emphasizing trust and communication.

The Chinese Youth Retreat for Chinese Leadership Excellence (CYRCLE) has since moved to Athens, and is hosted every year during the Thanksgiving Holidays.
