Camp Naru provides a fun, safe, and immersive learning experience for Korean American youth to:
Strengthen understanding and appreciation of their cultural identity
Build lifelong friendships in community
Grow in confidence and self-esteem
Our mission is to equip our youth and future generations with an ability to navigate life as individuals and members of the Korean American community with a sense of belonging and rich cultural heritage.
We envision a world where kids and youth feel safe and celebrated for who they are with their distinct cultural and personal identity as they integrate and engage with other cultures.
What does “Naru” mean?
In Korean 나루 “Naru” means “ferry boat crossing”. Camp Naru in essence is our metaphor for a “crossing”, where Korean and American culture, identity, and understanding of oneself intersect, is shared and flourishes.
Located at Pocono Springs Camp, in East Stroudsburg, PA
Camp Naru will be held in the scenic Poconos, 1.5 hours west of Manhattan.
The perfect setting for eight days of new friends, new experiences and self-discovery.
