Confucian summer camps take S Korean children back to basics

Help

Children in South Korea are being given the chance to step back in time by attending a summer camp where lessons are based on the teachings of the 5th Century BC Chinese philosopher Confucius.

For about $300 a week the youngsters can learn about manners and etiquette, calligraphy, team work and how to respect one's elders.
