What is Camp Pride Korea?
Camp Pride Korea is a day camp with classes for children from 4 years old through 12th grade. Classes are available for Korean adoptees and their siblings. Camp offers a week of exciting, fun, and age-appropriate activities.
Camp Pride strives to offer culture and community for the entire family. Parents are strongly encouraged to participate by taking on a volunteer role. There is a wide range of opportunities for parents to participate as a volunteer before, during, and after camp. Parents who have been a part of Camp have built lasting friendships with other families and have seen the importance of their children connecting with other Korean adoptees.
As one of our regular volunteers shared, “There is nothing quite like it. It’s a valuable experience for all of us – it’s become a summer tradition that we simply don’t miss.”
What can you tell me about the High School Program?
Campers entering 9th through 12th grade are welcome to join us for a fun and exciting week of Korean culture, food, field-trips and friends. In the interest of keeping our high school program fresh and relevant, the experiences vary from year to year. Decisions are based on many factors, including the number of campers, availability of venues, past experiences, and the needs of families. The program will include visiting locations that offer teens the opportunity to experience Korean culture first hand. The campers will be transported by a professional bus company for any field trips. Several adult volunteers will accompany the high school campers on any and all field trips. There is an additional fee of $50.00 for high school campers.
Can I volunteer at camp?
Absolutely. Camp is run by volunteers and it is those people who keep this camp going. There are many different positions you can volunteer for such as cooking in the kitchen, playground supervisor, class teacher, camp photographer, camp shopper, or help run our camp store only to mention a few.
You will find information about volunteering in the camp registration form at this link though there are no volunteer positions open for the 2020 program. We do offer discounts on camp fees for volunteering.
We’d love to have you join the fun for one day, two or all five days – whatever time you have. It means so much to the campers to see their parents throughout the day volunteering and learning about the Korean culture.
