** Kaneko Day Camp 2015 ** 

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:

  • Origami
  • Japanese Games & Songs
  • Basic Japanese Language Instruction
  • Demonstrations
  • Calligraphy
  • Japanese Culture
  • Dance
