Tour Korea! Birthland Tour from CHLSS

We received word from CHLSS that they have a couple tours of Korea scheduled for 2018. Both of them overlap with Camp Moon Hwa, though.

Here’s some information:

We offer personalized post adoption services, cultural expertise and caring support to help Korean adoptees learn more about their Korean origins, culture and people important to their birth and adoption stories. Regardless of a family’s U.S. or Korean adoption agency, we provide a unique, comprehensive birthland tour with post adoption services backed by years of experience.

In 2018, we will offer the same tour at two different times June 12-25, 2018 and June 26-July 9, 2018.

Camp Moon Hwa 2017 is going well!

Camp Moon Hwa 2017 Class Schedule

We finally have the class schedule finished with room numbers listed:
2017 Camp Moon Hwa Schedule FINAL (Microsoft Word version)
2017 Camp Moon Hwa Schedule FINAL (pdf version)

Camp is all set up. The Food Crew hit the road this morning to buy plenty of food supplies for the week ahead. All we need now are campers to fill chairs.

There’s a bit of a change for the mornings this year. Each child will have a home room and that is where he or she will go first in the morning. Then the class leader will bring the kids to the gym for opening ceremonies. Parents who want to be there for the opening ceremonies will go directly to the gym while the kids are in homeroom.

We’re planning a little more for the opening ceremonies this year. We hope it adds to each camper’s experience.

Now, some pictures from set up:

Snazzy tee shirts with the smaller logo. I like it!
