Students who will be going into fourth, fifth, or sixth grade in the fall of 2022 are invited to attend a Japanese Culture Camp at Mayville State University Campus Center. It is planned for Wednesday, Aug. 10 from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. A fee of $10 per student will help to offset the cost of supplies used for the camp. Lunch and snacks are included.

Campers will make a shibori tie-dyed T-shirt to take home. Camp activities will also include experiences with shodo (calligraphy and language) and origami, and a Japanese culture fair with games and toys.
