What is Camp Musubi? 

Camp Musubi is a weeklong day camp that uses fun activities to teach young people about Japanese American heritage. Camp Musubi takes place in the summer in Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo. The goal of the camp is to spark interest in the Japanese American culture and community through hands-on experiences and interactions with people in the community. Participants will learn from a variety of cultural and community "experts" and do group activities with a college-aged leader.

When is Camp Musubi?

The dates for Camp Musubi 2012 are July 16-20th. The program runs from 9am to 4pm. Extended care is available 4-5:30pm for an additional fee of $40.

What kind of fun activities are part of the experience?

The activities will include a combination of cultural experiences, games, and field trips. Cultural workshops may include taiko, ikebana, martial arts, papermaking, cooking, calligraphy, etc. Guest speakers will include cultural artists, Japanese American Professional and athletes as well as people from community groups. Past participants have gone on a scavenger hunt throughout J-Town and visited various sites such as the Japanese American National Museum, Terminal Island, Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at CSULB and last year they were able to have an extended day trip to Manzanar National Historical Park.

Who can participate in Camp Musubi?

Camp Musubi is open to any middle school-aged student entering 6th, 7th, or 8th grade, who wants to have fun learning about Nikkei heritage. There are no restrictions.
