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 Going Well

Camp Moon Hwa 2017 is going well!

We had a lovely game of musical chairs this morning. There may be more fun at tomorrow’s opening ceremony.

Just a few reminders:

We need some rice cookers and grills. If you’re willing to share with us, please let us know.
We have a Facebook account: https://www.facebook.com/CampMoonHwa/
We have a Twitter account: https://twitter.com/campmoonhwa
W
e also have a new way show pictures. We have a Google page: https://goo.gl/photos/Ug3KEJTTStAMMLHk9
If you have a google account, you can add your own pictures to the page. If you don’t have a google account and want pictures added, just sent them to campmoonhwamn at gmail.com and we’ll add them.

 

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!

We have plenty to do for Camp Moon Hwa 2018!

It’s Miles! On the Front Page! Of the Post-Bulletin!

If anyone saw today’s (Monday, May 15) front page of the Rochester Post Bulletin, you might recognize Miles from Camp Moon Hwa. Don’t worry; it’s good news. He’s being congratulated by Med City FC soccer player.

Here is the Post Bulletin’s gallery from the match: http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/localsports/photos-med-city-fc-lc-aris-fc-soccer/collection_371c35a2-3845-11e7-b6fc-1fb34b446a49.html

It leaves us wondering if, maybe, Camp Moon Hwa should sell their own soccer scarves. It seems worth considering.

Good job, Miles!

Meeting on March 20th at Madonna Towers

Here’s a reminder that there’s a Camp Moon Hwa meeting on March 20th at 6 p.m. at Madonna Towers.

Julie created a spreadsheet that includes the financial information for the past few years to aid in creating a budget.  Thank you, Julie, for making this!  We’ll be discussion it.

We only have 3 meetings scheduled between now and camp, so the meetings may get kinda crazy. (Not sure if that’s a warning or a selling point.)

Date Changed for Overnight; And Other Notes

A couple notes from the February Camp Moon Hwa meeting:

  • The overnight experience will be Wednesday night to Thursday morning. This information will be in future notifications, too. But, people like to be able to plan evenings, we wanted to let you know as early as possible.
  • We are planning to keep the week before July 4th as our camp week every year now.
  • Pictures! We are trying out Google photos for pictures. Check out the page for Camp Moon Hwa 2016. You can add your own pictures if you have any you’d like to share.
  • Again, we’re planning on Camp meetings for the 3rd Monday of each month. You’re welcome to show up.
