What Makes KCC MN Special?

The Positive Impact of Teen Helpers
KCC receives requests from former campers who want to continue to be involved in KCC by volunteering. Our teen helpers are a group of wonderful role models who act as camp counselors to the campers. They assist in teaching traditional Korean songs and dances performed by campers at our Saturday program.

KCC is run by Volunteers
There is a particular need for full-week volunteers and we especially appreciate volunteers who are flexible enough to serve where the need is greatest. You might want to check at your place of employment to see if they offer “volunteer days” (rather than needing to use vacation time) or offer matching donations.

The Joys of Melon Bars and Korean Gifts!
At the end of each day campers have the opportunity to purchase special Korean snacks, including the famous melon bars.

The KCC Family
Selected by Hong Joo Lee, our camp teachers are Korean and Korean American adults who thrive on interacting with and educating children. They design curriculum to educate and excite our campers about Korean culture, heritage, history, dance and martial arts.

Each class is staffed with two homeroom aides, parents of campers who accompany the children, provide a point of contact for the drop off and pick-up of children, and keep at the end of each day. Campers have the opportunity watchful eye on the kids to ensure everyone acts in a safe, respectful manner.

Our tireless aides are assisted by two teen helpers (former KCC campers) who manage and mentor the children and provide a hand to hold or a soccer partner.

The lifeblood of KCC is you, the parents. Without your involvement KCC would not be possible.
