Click to enlargeCamp Friendship was founded in 1984 by the parents of Korean adopted children in order to provide a cultural experience for their children. They believed that such an experience would enhance their children's self-esteem while building a sense of national pride in their heritage and it's traditions.

Click to enlargeCamp Friendship operates a one-week day camp during the summer for Korean-born adoptees and their siblings entering grades k through eighth. Camp is held during the third week of each July and takes place at the Shrine of St. Joseph in Stirling, NJ, which is about 40 minutes from New York City.

Click to enlargeThe first year’s camp included thirty children. Since then, there have been as many as 130 children in camp! The children enjoy classes in brush painting, tae kwan do, drumming, dance, folklore, language, music, art and cooking. The fundamental goal to increase our children’s understanding of their Korean heritage. Most of our instructors are from the Korean-American community.

Click to enlargeCamp ends each year with a traditional Korean banquet for our campers, instructors, volunteers and selected guests. Following the luncheon, the children put on a short performance for their families and all attendees demonstrating what they've learned during the week. Each grade is involved in a part of the performance. We encourage the children to dress up and wear their hanboks if appropriate.
