                      TANOSHII Fun Camp

TANOSHII Fun Camp was successfully completed on Friday, July 19, 2013 at the Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute. This was the 6th year for the week long TANOSHII Fun Camp, sponsored by the South Bay JACL and the Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute (GVJCI) for children 7 to10 years old.

Led by high school and college aged camp counselors, as well as adult volunteers, the TANOSHII Fun Camp truly serves as an intergenerational learning experience for all who want to learn more about Japanese and Japanese American heritage and culture.

This year's theme, "The Japanese Experience -The Concentration Camp" was one of the most trying times for our Issei and Nisei. We wanted to have our campers learn about what the young kids experienced during WWII and in the Concentration Camps.
