A Japanese American Heritage Experience

Now in its 14th year, Camp Musubi is a summer camp that uses fun activities to teach 5th-8th grade youth about Japanese American heritage. Based on the 130-year rich history of Little Tokyo, the goal of the camp is to spark interest and appreciation in Japanese American culture, history and community through hands-on experiences, workshops and guest speakers. Participants will learn from a variety of cultural artists, community leaders, and college-aged counselors.


Camp Musubi welcomes any incoming 5th, 6th, 7th or 8th graders in the Fall 2015.

This year’s camp will be a two-day, one-night sleepover in Little Tokyo.

Friday, July 17 – Saturday, July 18, 2015

While the vast majority of Japanese Americans live in the surrounding areas of Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo with cultural camps closer to home, Camp Musubi is committed to Little Tokyo. We feel it’s important to connect campers to J-Town’s 130-year history and the struggles and triumphs of our Issei, Nisei and Sansei. As one of only three remaining historic Japantowns in the country, Little Tokyo’s future depends on the next generation building memories and experiences along its historic sidewalks, manju shops and social institutions.
