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.

Sorry, this web site hasn’t been updated, but I’ve been busy with a trip to South Korea and am just now getting back in the swing of things.
According to this tweet, an organziation called Me & Korea is proposing an International Korean Adoptee Memorial in Korea for adoptees to further a connection with South Korea. I’m not seeing much about it on their web site, but I thought some might be interested.
Also, if there is something you’d like to see included in the museum, they welcome submissions–which must be sent by May 31st. (No, I won’t pester you as much about that deadline as I did about the Camp Moon Hwa registration deadline.)
Remember when Conan O’Brien went to South Korea for his TV show? Well, according to Variety and other sources, that episode is scheduled to air on April 9th on TBS. (Yes, exactly 22 days before the Camp Moon Hwa 2016 registration deadline!) The story says it airs at 11 PM. I assume that is Eastern time, so it would be 10 PM Minnesota time.
So while you’re icing down after the Park Institute Tae Kwon Do tournament, grab some bulgogi, mandu, Choco Pies, melon bars, Choco Boys, and Milkis and watch Conan celebrate South Korea.
Team Coco is taking his crew to South Korea next week. Then, sometime later, they will make a show dedicated to the trip. Check your local listings.
