What is Camp Musubi?
Camp Musubi is a weeklong day camp that uses fun activities to teach young people about Japanese American heritage. Camp Musubi takes place around Nisei Week, usually in mid-August. The goal of the camp is to spark interest in the Japanese American culture and community through hands-on experiences and interactions with people in the community. Participants will learn from a variety of cultural and community "experts" and do group activities with a college-aged leader.
When is Camp Musubi?
The dates for Camp Musubi 2012 are July 16-20th. The program runs from 9am to 4pm. Extended care is available 4-5:30pm for an additional fee of $40.
What kind of fun activities are part of the experience?
The activities will include a combination of cultural experiences, games, and field trips. Cultural workshops may include taiko, ikebana, martial arts, papermaking, cooking, calligraphy, etc. Guest speakers will include cultural artists, Japanese American Professional and athletes as well as people from community groups. Past participants have gone on a scavenger hunt throughout J-Town and visited various sites such as the Japanese American National Museum, Terminal Island and Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at CSULB.
