We are pleased to announce that this summer, we will be partnering with the Salem Keizer Education Foundation (SKEF) to provide Kaneko Day Camp as one of SKEF’s summer programs. Our session will be titled “Explore Japan!” and will be held July 11-15, 2016.
Applications are now available for this summer's Explore Japan! session, via the SKEF website. This day camp is an annual event put on by the students and staff at TIUA. This is a great way for kids to engage in a variety of hands-on activities to learn about Japanese language and culture.
A few things will be different this year, including a morning session for kids from kindergarten through second grade, and an afternoon session for third through fifth graders. Unfortunately, we are not offering sessions for middle schoolers this year.
Camp will be held at McKinley Elementary School, with the other SKEF day camp offerings.

TIUA is sponsoring an ASP Yearbook Photo Contest. Each year, students and staff create a yearbook, which reflects all that happened during that year through photographs. For the second year, there is a contest to select some photos for the yearbook. The contest is open to students, staff and faculty of Willamette University, including the American Studies Program, and Tomodachi Program participants. There are some great prizes, including two $50, four $25, and 10 $10 Compass Cash cards. In addition, if your photo is selected, you will be credited in the yearbook.
The contest deadline is April 22.
