Time to sign up for Japanese Summer Camp!

Jeanne Mandrapa has partnered with the YG PTO to bring her summer camp to the YG building this year. There will be two weeks of camp -  the last week of July and the first week of August.

Camp is in session from 9am - 3pm, Monday through Friday
Bring a lunch each day (snacks provided)
Before & Aftercare can be provide for an extra fee.

This year's camps will work to incorporate a community cultural elements that will enhance the experience and allow our students to showcase their talents. 

  • Week 1: Obon Festival Camp Provides students with Japanese speaking and writing practice as well as dancing skills that will culminate with students attending the local Obon Festival on Saturday, July 30th. 
  • Week 2: Nagasaki/Hiroshima Commemorative Camp Provides students with additional Japanese speaking and writing practice as well as singing practice that will culminate with students performing at the Nagasaki/Hiroshima Commemoration on August 6th.

Attendance at the weekend events is expected, times to be determined. Please check in with Jeanne if you have any concerns.  Attendance for is free and both events are held at Alton Baker Park. 

Prices have dropped from $185 in previous years and is now $125.  To keep this low price, we need a large number of students to sign up!  We are hoping for 40 students each week for maximum fun. Monica Sensei (Kumiko Sensei's daughter) will be teaching with Jeanne, along with high school volunteers.

Registration booklets can be found on the wall by the front door of the school. Please contact Jeanne Mandrapa at (541) 342-5990 for more information.
