The Okinawa Association of America (OAA) will host its “Camp Warabi,” a five-day summer program for middle school students to learn about Okinawan culture and arts, from Monday to Friday, July 8-12 , 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the OAA Center, at 16500 S. Western Ave., Gardena.
College-age counselors will be selected and trained to lead campers as each day will be filled with “fun learning and connecting with one’s Okinawan roots,” OAA organizers said.
Registration is required due to limited space. The fee is $225 for OAA members and $260 for non-OAA members — check to see if the deadline was extended. The registration fee will help to cover daily lunches, snacks, and drinks; camper T-shirts; and workshop materials. Contact the OAA office (weekdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) at firstname.lastname@example.org or 310-532-1929.
