What About Food?
Of course, no camp called Kamp Kimchee would be complete without Kimchee! Each day, Kampers are served a traditional Korean lunch prepared fresh on-site. During lunch time, Kampers are also able to visit the North Gate Market (Kamp Store) to purchase fun snacks and gift items.
Parents Matter Too!
While children are attending classes each day, parents are invited and encouraged to attend special programming designed specifically for them to connect with other adoptive parents. These informal workshops are much like support groups, offering education on many topics that affect parents who are part of a transracial family. Our parent programming is designed to help parents on how to aid their child and entire family in becoming a strong support system for one another.
Friday’s Korean Heritage Festival
The last day of Kamp Kimchee is capped off with a closing ceremony that we refer to as the Korean Heritage Festival. The day begins with condensed morning classes followed by a special Korean lunch. Tickets for friends and relatives who would like to have lunch are available for purchase. The afternoon’s Heritage Festival highlights various events of the week. Starting at 1:30pm, Kampers perform traditional Korean songs, dances, and TaeKwonDo. This event is free and open to the general public.
