These days Shanghai enters the hottest time of a year while the 120 young people from 20 countries in the 11th Shanghai International Youth Interactive Friendship Camp have higher enthusiasm than the temperature. On July 28, 2015, they travelled through the city in the scorching sun, completing all the tasks of "I Love Shanghai" International Youth Urban Orienteering Competition through the cooperation and interaction among the teammates.

Starting from the Shanghai Youth and Children's Activity Centre, the campers who were divided into 10 teams walked or took public transportations to reach the 8 point marks across the city, such as People's Square, Xintiandi and China Art Palace and finished the specified assignments like passing through the key rings, skipping rope and taking photos in required positions. The whole contest lasted for 6 hours.

Annie from Thailand just finished the morning tasks with sweat still on her face. "It is very hot, but I don't care. I'm very delighted to complete the game with my teammates. Meanwhile, we explore the city through the event. I love Shanghai and I hope to stay longer", said the girl.

"I hope we can win, but I prefer to enjoy the process", Thiha from Myanmar told the reporter of Eastday.com.


The campers gathered at the Shanghai Youth and Children's Activity Centre, listened to the cautions and got ready to start.


Teammates bit straws by mouth and passed through the key ring from the first person to the last.
