Let’s Go to Camp Naru! Summer Youth Camp for Korean American & Multi-Ethnic Kids

**LICENSED NURSES NEEDED FOR CAMP NARU. Please reach out to info@campnaru.org for more information.

We are excited to announce the launch of Camp Naru, a new nonprofit Korean American summer youth camp that aims to help Korean American children, including those who are adopted and multi-ethnic, strengthen their appreciation of Korean culture, build friendships in community, and grow in confidence and self-esteem.

Our first camp session will take place from August 16-22, 2022 at Berkshire Hills Eisenberg Camp in Copake, NY for children ages 8-14. Please check out our website for more information and to apply: www.campnaru.org.

“Naru” means “ferry boat crossing” in Korean; a metaphor for a “crossing” where Korean and American culture, identity, and understanding of oneself intersect, is shared, and flourishes. Our mission is to equip our youth and future generations with an ability to navigate life as individuals and members of the Korean American community with a sense of belonging and rich cultural heritage. We envision a world where kids and youth can embrace and celebrate who they are with their distinct cultural and personal identity as they engage in the world.

The fee for camp is $1,000. Financial assistance is available as we seek to be accessible to all Korean American youth, regardless of their financial circumstances.

For more information, please check out www.campnaru.org or info@campnaru.org . Or follow us on Instagram and Facebook.
