Day camp is offered for children entering Kindergarten through 6th grade in the fall.


The day camper's day begins at 9:00 with Cho Whey, a family gathering with entertainment and announcements.  Campers will join their groups to participate in the fun of Cho Whey.  Day campers are assigned to groups based upon the grade they are entering in the fall.  Following Cho Whey, the day campers will attend their various sessions at locations throughout camp.

Those sessions include:

  • Korean language and culture
  • traditional dance and drum
  • Taekwondo
  • music
  • self-respect
  • archery

The campers day also includes a wonderful Korean lunch served each day and a visit to the Market for tasty snacks.  Their day wraps up at 4:00 each day except Friday, which concludes after a closing ceremony.


While children are attending camp, parents and other relatives are asked to volunteer where possible and are also invited to attend the Adult Workshops (no charge), visit the Market, and enjoy a wonderful Korean lunch (tickets available for purchase).


On Friday afternoon a performance and camp closing ceremony is held.  The campers perform songs, dances, and Taekwondo moves they learned during the week.  Attendance is open to all interested relatives and friends at no cost.


                           OVERNIGHT BRIDGE CAMP


In addition to the day camp, children entering 6th grade can also sign up for an overnight camp option.  Campers will stay at camp overnight on the Thursday night of camp.  This gives soon-to-be resident campers a chance experience a bit of what resident camp will be like. A evening meal, games and various activities are planned.


                                       RESIDENT CAMP


Resident camp is offered for children entering 7th grade through 11th grade in the fall.

  • team building tasks
  • Korean drumming
