C3 Korean Canadian Society presents the 9th Annual Camp Korea: “Traditional Games of Korea”. Please check out the details and register today!

What did kids do in the olden days to have some fun?  Didn’t take much… just the basics.  Fast-forward to today and entertainment for kids usually involves an xbox, playstation, smart phone, computer, tablet and the list goes on. During this year’s Camp Korea, we will explore the world of traditional sports and games of Korea ~ from Yutnori to Ssireum to Jegichagi to Yeonnaligi ~ and have a back-to basics lesson in having fun!  We will play sports and games that have been passed down from generation to generation, and learn how these pastimes are an important reflection of Korean history, culture and environment. Join us for an exciting and fun-filled 4 days/3 nights in our new location, in the beautiful deep woods of Camp Summit (in Squamish, BC) and experience the true spirit of summer camp! For more information on Camp Summit, please check out  www.campsummit.ca

*Notice – Due to unforeseen circumstances we have decided to move Camp Korea at a different location this year. Please bear in mind that this relocation will result in better overall camping experience for CITs & Campers. Feel free to check out the website for Camp Summit – http://www.campsummit.ca/ and if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us at campkorea@c3society.org
