In the Spring, my 14 year old daughter, who is obsessed with all things Korean, asked if she could go to a Korean camp in the summer. Since we live a train-ride away from New York City, I told her to go online and see what she could find. I thought she'd find a day-camp in NYC where her daily commute would be a fun little adventure. Turns out she found, and convinced us she should go to, a two week Korean immersion camp in Minnesota run by Concordia College. She showed us she was serious when she began studying Korean with the mom of a friend from school who speaks Korean. While she is at camp, she will live in one of the language villages (there are 15 languages they offer with each one living in it's own village) and there is no English spoken. All the food is Korean, the activities are designed to teach the culture and pass-times popular in Korea, and the village itself is set-up to feel like a Korean village. She left this morning on an early flight and she was so excited she could hardly sleep last night. I'm so proud of her courage and a little in awe of her sense of adventure-- I raise a glass of bubble tea with a toast to my Abby!
