Comedian shares thoughts with and encourages trainees during two-week summer camp

Hong Kong would have a better future if more young people took part in the summer camp organized by the People's Liberation Army Hong Kong Garrison, world-renowned comedian and director Stephen Chow Sing-chi said.

"I would like to thank those (young people) for spending their summer in the camp as the training in the camp is painstaking. It is rare that they are willing to spend time to experience hardship in the camp rather than playing around," Chow said in an exclusive interview with China Daily.

The Military Summer Camp for Hong Kong Youth opened at the San Wai Barracks on July 16. This year about 500 students from 126 highschools in Hong Kong joined the camp.

More than 3,200 teenagers from Hong Kong have joined the annual summer camp, which began in 2005.
