Korean Heritage Camp is the “flagship” heritage camp, and we will be celebrating our 27th year in 2018. It is the first of the nine camps that celebrate both adoption and culture facilitated by the highly respected Heritage Camps for Adoptive Families. In addition to celebrating adoption and culture w/your adopted Korean children, KHC warmly welcomes non-adopted siblings, siblings adopted from other cultures and extended family members to learn about their adopted family heritage and culture. Korean Heritage Camp offers workshops and activities for adults, and for PreK (3 and 4 years old) through rising 12th graders.
Our Korean immersion activities and workshops are for all age groups at camp, and our parent workshops are on a par with most major adoption conferences. Everyone works together to make camp successful, so there are many opportunities to get to know other families that share in the adoption experience. Here, experienced parents and older adoptees are always willing to share helpful information with the next generation. Everyone loves to see our littlest campers as well, with preschool opportunities that allow even the newest adoptive parents to fully participate.
As always, we will explore the unique gifts and challenges that come with being transracial adoptive families. As our children grow, they will be dealing with issues faced by every child of color, no matter their country of birth. At camp, our children are with families just like theirs and they are surrounded by campers, counselors and community members who look like them. We enthusiastically celebrate their birth county, and we also celebrate adoption as a culture of its own. The impact and importance of being with families “just like theirs” at camp cannot be understated. It creates bonds between our children and our families that may not easily found in our communities and other areas of our daily lives.
Hope to see you at KHC in June!http://www.heritagecamps.org/korean.html
