Kizuna’s Nikkei Discovery Camp held at the San Fernando Valley Japanese American Community Center in 2015.

Join Kizuna for its fourth year of the Nikkei Discovery Camp, a local summer camp for kids ages 7-12 (entering 2nd grade to entering 8th grade), centered on building a foundation of Japanese American culture and heritage.

The camp is a high-caliber program, selecting instructors from the community’s cultural experts, counselors who are carefully vetted and rigorously trained, and with workshops and activities optimized for passing on the Japanese American tradition.

Camp is in five locations this summer: San Fernando Valley (June 13-17), West L.A. (June 27-July 1), Orange County (July 11-15 and 18-22), South Bay (July 18-22 and 25-29), and Pasadena (Aug. 1-5). All camps are a week long (Monday through Friday) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pricing begins at $215 per child. See website for more information on dates, times, locations, and pricing.
