Program for middle schoolers to explore Okinawan culture, family roots

The Okinawa Association of America (OAA)’s “Camp Warabi” is a five-day summer program for middle school students to learn about Okinawan culture, arts, and identity. College-age counselors will be selected and trained to lead campers as each day will be filled with fun learning and connecting with one’s Okinawan roots. The program is set for July 8 (Monday) - 12 (Friday), 9 a.m. - 2 p.m., at the OAA Center in Gardena, California. Registration is required to participate.

Immersive learning - From traditional music to folk crafts, campers will have the chance to learn about Okinawa. Activities include eisaa (traditional drum-dancing) lessons, sanshin (traditional 3-stringed instrument) lessons, learning simple words/phrases in the endangered Okinawan language, Okinawa-inspired arts and crafts, a youth-focused presentation about World War II’s Battle of Okinawa, and more.

Fellowship - This program will provide the opportunity for campers to meet fellow young Okinawans outside of their school and family circles and to develop their teamwork skills through engaging activities.

Reflection - Okinawan culture and history will be connected to deeper topics such as ancestry, nature, and values. Additionally, presentations about community, peace, and immigration aim to explore interconnectedness. The program will schedule daily sustained silent writing for campers to think about and expand on what they learned.

Okinawan values and beliefs - With each activity, the program will explore the values and beliefs that are embedded in Okinawan culture including “ichariba choodee” (once we meet, we’re family), “yuimaaruu” (helping each other in the community), “nuchi du takara” (life is a treasure), and others.

Registration is required due to limited space. The early-bird fee is $200 for OAA members and $235 for non-OAA member (Deadline: May 31, 2019). The regular fee is $225 for OAA members and $260 for non-OAA members (Deadline: June 14, 2019). The registration fee will help to cover daily lunches, snacks, and drinks; camper t-shirts; and workshop materials. Please contact the OAA office (weekdays, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.) at oaamensore@gmail.com or (310) 532-1929.
