What is a Ju Hui?
The association organises a national biannual gathering called the Ju Hui, for pre and post adoption families. This gathering is held in a different place in Australia each time.
FCCA Ju Hui 2018 – Melbourne, CBD
Our 2018 Ju Hui will be held in the spring school holidays and there’s something for everyone!
It will be a great urban adventure, alongside time to think about current adoption issues and time to catch up with old friends and to form new friendships.
This year’s Ju Hui will be based at City CYC Melbourne. It is a beautiful heritage-listed building in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD (corner of Collins and King Streets). We’ve chosen it not just because of its central location but also for flexibility of accommodation – there will be family rooms, parent rooms, kid rooms and teenager retreats – whatever you request – we can organise!
Activities on offer during the Ju Hui include:
- The Melbourne Star
- Ice skating
- Art Vo
- Personal development
- Presentations from Xinran and An An
- …& Shopping!!!
Look forward to seeing you at FCC-Australia Ju Hui 2018 – Urban Adventure
FCCA Ju Hui 2016 – Sydney, Collaroy Plateau
Ju Hui 2016 was held over a weekend in the spring school holidays at the Collaroy Centre, Sydney. The Collaroy Centre is approximately 24 km from Sydney City and close to Collaroy Beach.
The Centre was a great venue. It is mid-way between Manly and Palm Beach and is set on 10ha of natural bush land with breathtaking views, overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
The centre was chosen as it enabled FCC-A to have a camp with ‘something for everyone’ offering affordable onsite accommodation in cabins and hotel rooms and on-site catering. Attendees were able to join in organised activities, run by the Centre, or hang out at Collaroy beach, Narrabeen Lakes or nearby Manly.
Some of the activities organized for the younger children included calligraphy and kite-flying. Here is a brief ‘interview’ with two of the children that attended the 2016 Ju Hui. The children were six years old at the camp and this was their first Ju Hui. Here are their thoughts…
