Kaneko Day Camp (KDC) is an annual event put on by the students and staff at TIUA. KDC is a great way for children to get a taste of Japanese culture. This year's camp begins Monday, August 3, running through Thursday, August 6, 2015.
Camp is from 8:30AM until Noon each day, except for Thursday's Camp which ends about 12:45 pm. On Thursday, we offer a bento-style lunch for all participants, a chance for the parents to tour the classrooms, and a Japanese dance demonstration.
Campers are divided into groups of 10-15 children and they attend a variety of 30 minute sessions on various topics such as origami, songs, games, and more!
This year we are offering an Early Bird Discount if you register and pay by June 30!

They will spend the next eleven months participating in the American Studies Program at Willamette University and TIUA. After they found their rooms in one of the residence halls on campus and met their International Peer Coach (IPC), they were officially welcomed by the Willamette community at Goudy for dinner that evening. WU's Dean of Campus Life David Douglass welcomed them to the community and they were then entertained by some WU a capella groups. The rest of the week with be spent in orientations, campus tours, shopping, and making lots of new friends.
