Kids to explore Japanese culture at summer camps
June 18th, 2010
Children will be making colorful kites, painting kimonos and learning a traditional Japanese dance at the Museum of Anthropology’s summer camps for kids ages 6 through 12. They will also be rolling and eating sushi—a challenge even for adults.
Mako Aoki, who is visiting Wake Forest this year on a grant from the Japanese Outreach Initiative, will be co-teaching the camp.
Camps are held July 5-9, July 12-16 and July 19-23 from 9 a.m.-noon. Local television journalists can make arrangements to visit a class by contacting the news center at 336.758.5237. Media relations can provide information on best times to visit for television and photography.
