Kurabu is designed to offer children a bi-lingual summer camp experience that is rewarding, fun and reinforces their Japanese language skills. Our program is rich in cultural diversity and serves Japanese and non-Japanese children from the Portland Metro Region. All of our staff and volunteers have either studied Japanese, are bi-lingual, or native speakers, and come to us from local and Japanese schools, universities and the community. The Japanese Immersion Program interns act as lead teachers each week.

It’s time to register for Oya No Kai’s 2018 weekends at Camp Westwind!
Many of you are already familiar with this annual event, but if you are new to the Japanese Magnet Program, here is what it is about:
Every year our community gets together at the Oregon coast to build friendships through fellowship, relaxation, and fun! We occupy the entirety of Camp Westwind, a beautiful retreat set in pristine Oregon coastal forest, just north of Lincoln City. Families from across the entire spectrum of the JMP participate, from pre-K through graduated alumni. We share cabins, meals, hikes, tide pooling, campfires, games, laughter and songs. We commune with old friends, make new friends, and bond together as a community. It is an experience you and your family will treasure, and the friendships will stay with you throughout your time in the Japanese Magnet Program.
