Applications Available Now for Kaneko Day Camp 2015

altKaneko 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!

The deadline to register and guarantee a camp t-shirt is July 15.  There are also still some needs-based scholarships available.

Yearbook Photo Contest Winners Announced!

altThe photos are in, the judges have voted, and we are happy to announce the winners of the Yearbook Photo Contest!

A record-breaking 157 entries were accepted and it was very difficult to choose the award recipients.  Thank you so much to those who entered your pictures to the contest.  Also big thanks goes to our volunteer judges: Samuel Swanson, Tamara Smith, Russell Fauss, and Barby Dressler.

You will see these pictures in 2015 ASP Yearbook, which will come out in early December. There are so many good pictures that did not make to the awards, but some of those pictures may be also used in the yearbook."

The contest was open to students, staff and faculty of Willamette University, including the American Studies Program, and Tomodachi Program participants. There were great prizes, including two $50, four $25, and 11 $10 Compass Cash cards.
