Kurabu Summer Camp
Kurabu is a Japanese summer day camp for children who are entering kindergarten through fifth grade in the coming fall and are currently in a Japanese immersion program or who speak Japanese at home. Kurabu is a partnership between Portland Parks & Recreation, SUN Community Schools, Oya No Kai, and Mt. Tabor Middle School.
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.
A typical week at Kurabu would include a field trip, enrichment class such as taiko or cooking, art, music, Japanese language, and an end-of-week celebration for students and families.
