Summer Karate and Cultural Immersion Program
Thu, Jun 1, 2017, 7:00 AM – Thu, Aug 24, 2017, 6:00 PM CDT
Our Summer Day Camp will focus this year on "Cultures of the World". Each week, campers will be immersed in the culture, language, dress and history of a new and different foreign land. France, Africa, Korea, South America, Thailand, China, Japan, Okinawa and the Philippines are some of the countries and cultures that your child will learn about in camp.
For each culture studied the staff will work with your child to learn common phrases (please, thank you, hello, goodbye, counting and common houehold words), sample the food, create culture specific crafts, learn songs, poems or stories and the unique contributions of the country and culture.
Day trip opportunities will include visits to restaurants serving authentic cuisine of the current culture of study, cultural food markets and museums.
In addition, every other week the parents and family will be invited to a ceremony performed by the campers that represents the culture of one of the countries studied!
