What does Camp Pride Korea typically look like?

  • A camp for Korean adoptees and their siblings.
  • A camp managed and operated by parent volunteers.
  • A camp with opportunities for cultural and personal connections for families.
  • In 2022, Pre K – 8th grade will attend three days and high school camp will be held three evenings and include a sleepover.

How do the high school campers spend their time at Camp?

For 2022 the High School schedule will include field trips, outings and time for campers to play games and hang-out. The 2022 final agenda is below:

  • Wednesday: Top Golf
  • Thursday: Dinner and Noraebong (karaoke) in Glenview
  • Friday: Bonfire and Sleepover at HanMee
  • Saturday:  Pickup at 10:00 am

In the interest of keeping our high school program fresh and relevant,  decisions are based on number of campers, availability of venues, past experiences, and family needs. Typically their days include:

  • Contemporary and traditional Korean culture experiences.
  • Sharing a creative group project.
  • Opportunities to connect with peers and adult adoptees.

High School campers would need to obtain their own transportation. Most outings are in the general direction of HanMee Church in Itasca. Many parents carpool.

What is my role as a parent?

  • Volunteer!  Volunteer!  Volunteer!
  • Support your campers by encouraging their participation in all activities.
  • Spread the word about Camp Pride with other adoptive families.

Why is volunteering important?
